June's "Teaser" & Brief Hiatus

Ah, cashmere, here we go again! I did a darker colourway this month to transition into the winter months for a cowl or scarf if you like! This month is 100% cashmere in DK weight and is luscious! Enjoy!

In other news, this club will be on a brief hiatus and will re-open for registrations in September for October, November and December's shipments. Since we have moved to all cashmere for this club, this fibre definitely lends itself better to winter knitting so we'll take a wee break for the summer months.

Thank you everyone for your support and see you in September! Enjoy your summer :)

May's "Spoiler"

A lovely blending of red with burgundy for this scrumptious yarn made of 55% silk and 45% cashmere. Yum! The colourway is called Nastrium after the flower that has both of these colours in it! Enjoy!

May's "Teaser"

This month I decided to do a two-tone colourway and I think it turned out lovely! Hope everyone enjoys it too.

This month is a cashmere/silk yarn in fingering weight and really rather lovely. I can see a lovely scarf or a small shawl with this yarn. Enjoy!

Next Round!

Hello everyone and thank you for joining in for the next round of yarns! As I speak, my first shipment of cashmere has landed already and soon I'll be dyeing up the first batch of yarn for this round. Hope you're all doing well...I'm anxious to get my hands on the cashmere again and extra-excited that we'll be doing 3 full months of cashmere this time. Love the cashmere! More to come soon...stay tuned!

February's "Spoiler" & Registrations Open

This month's yarn is a truly decadent one made of cashmere and silk. The yarn dyes up beautifully and the silk gives the colourway a lovely sheen. Enjoy! This colourway is called "Clay Pot".

Registrations have re-opened for this club and the first mailing will be on April 22, 2009. Come join us this round as we will also be including at least one month of DK weight so clubbers have the option of knitting a cowl or a small shawl. It also allows us the opportunity to send cashmere with every shipment. Yum! Deadline to register is April 8, 2009.

January's "Spoiler"

This month's yarn is a super luxurious blending of superwash merino, bamboo and silk! Ultra soft to the touch, it will indeed make a wonderful pair of socks or perhaps a nice scarf or even a cowl.

Feel free to knit something other than socks with these yarns...they are luscious! Enjoy!

January's "Teaser"

This month I opted for a cool, soft colourway since I did a dark colourway last month. On this yarn, it looks lovely and I hope everyone enjoys this luxury yarn too! It's a wonderful blending of superwash superfine merino, bamboo and silk which gives it a lovely sheen while being super soft to the touch!

Everything mails early on the 16th instead of the 22nd as scheduled because I'm about to be quite literally swamped in yarn for a large project so I wanted to get everyone's yarn out to them before that happens :)

Enjoy and happy knitting! If you aren't in the mood for socks for this yarn, a nice scarf or cowl would be a lovely consideration for this yarn too.

December's "Spoiler"

Well, here we are! It's a brand new year and I'm so glad I restarted this club. Nothing is more yummy than cashmere :) I enjoyed dyeing it so much, I've decided to carry a few cashmere yarns in the store (under luxury yarn) on a regular basis - the store will carry DK weight and fingering in 100% cashmere and a cashmere/silk blend so if you are loving the cashmere, drop on by and see if there's something there that strikes your fancy too! :)

December's colourway was a fun one to dye - I decided to do a purple that hinted toward blue slightly so some of the skeins will end up showing a bit more blue than others but I hope you like it! It'll create a nice tonal variation when knitting! So what are you plans for this yarn? I love socks but maybe a scarf or cowl might suit you too! Enjoy and Happy New Year!
