Summertime means more reading and more knitting; these two loves combined to create the idea for our next colorway collection, The Great Reads. This will be an on going collection that will have series of new colorways added periodically. Each series will be offered one time only as Dye to Order. Our first series is based on five of my favorite "magical" books/series! Let me tell you a little bit about each one...
This Wednesday, April 19th at noon Texas time, the shop will be stocked with a little bit of everything that we have leftover from the fabulous DFW Fiber Fest!!!
I urge you to create an account and to be logged in as selections are vast but stock is limited and skeins tend to go fast. Wondering if your favorite will be in the sale? Most likely! Here are the colorways that will be showing up on Wednesday:
10 Days of Fiesta
A Case of the Mondays
Around the Corner
Beauty & Her Beast (online debut!)
Dark Side EPV
Frozen (on Ritz-sparkle)
Happy Birthday Cake
Happy Snowman (on Ritz)
Jelly Belly (online debut!)
Manly Man (free Man Card included with purchase)
Night @ the Roxbury
Polka Dot Afro Circus
Pumpkin Spice Latte
Pungent Reindeer King
Shiny Happy People (our DFW colorway for 2017)
The Sorting Hat
We will start shipping orders right away but with so much going up for sale, it may take a few days.
What's next? We have so much planned for Must Stash in the upcoming weeks and months! First off, Beauty & Her Beast will be available as a dye-to-order from April 22nd until April 27th. This 12 stripe colorway is inspired by the new Disney live action movie of the same name.
If you haven't see the coordinating cowl kit, you need to check out the Little Skein in the Big Wool's shop! She has a limited supply of ready-to-ship kits for sale on the 22nd with a pre-order option through the 27th. This fantastic cowl is not the same colorway as the Must Match socks, Beauty & Her Beast. It is two colorways, La Belle and La Bête! The cowl kit includes 500+ yard skeins in each colorway for a yarn baby that is just over 1000 yards and of course, Anne has pulled together unique kit options that are too good to miss.
Beginning in May, we will have back in stock a limited supply of all of our Star Wars colorways with a new Epic Galactic Battle Cowl miniskein kit available for the first time!
And the fun doesn't stop there! Also beginning in May we are introducing a creative new series inspired by the bookworm inside of me; The Great Reads Collection.
We are starting off with five of my favorite "magical" books and I am going to keep you in suspense for just a bit longer as to what they are. Each Great Reads colorway will be self striping as you have come to know and love Must Stash but we did recently introduce a new line of delicately speckled colorways called Simply Speckled on Instagram and at DFW.
They flew off the racks at DFW and so I cannot wait to offer them again online. You can expect to see more Simply Speckled colorways popping up in the shop from time to time.
2017 DFW Fiber Fest has come and gone and boy was it fun. I would like to thank Dianne, Suburban Stitcher, and Ivette and Sophia, my Must Stash Crew, for all their hard work this past weekend but mostly I would like to thank each and every one of you who stopped by the booth to say Hi, show me your WIPs/FO and to get more Must Stash into your stash!
Now that it is over...it's time to update the shop! I am counting inventory and getting everything back in order so we can have a Sorry You Couldn't Be There sale as soon as possible. I am going to pick a little bit of everything that was at the show so watch your email for what and when.
All of the Kama Sutra preorders have been dyed, dried, wrapped and shipped! When the Yarn Harlot posted pics of her Kama Sutra socks on her blog (www.yarnharlot.com- article: On The Move) almost a month ago and the request started pouring in, I was thrilled with how much she loved her socks and that we would be able to fit this impromptu dye-to-order into our production schedule although with the caveat that it would be at least a month before we could begin due to festival prep. However, we managed to work in a batch here and a batch there getting all the orders ready and out the door several weeks ahead of schedule. Go Team Must Stash!!
Thank you to everyone who placed a preorder and for those of you reading this who missed that sale, we will have another round after the DFW Fiber Fest.
Hello folks! I sent two huge boxes of yarn to Anne of Little Skein in the Big Wool last week for the Stitches West event!
It is this upcoming weekend and we are in booth #1038. If you are attending, please drop by to see all the lovelies and say Hi!
While I am away, the shop will be closed (February 23 to 26th).
Valentines is nearly upon us and so I offer Be Mine, a brand new mega striping colorway as a dye to order option starting January 25th!
The listing will only be open for a few days as I am still busily preparing for Stitches West next month. I will be the special guest in the Little Skein booth!! We are in booth 1038 so if you are planning to attend, please drop by to say Hi and to see our amazing collaboration kit.
The Yarn Harlot is knitting Eeyore's Rainbow!
While looking through my Instagram feed this afternoon, I stumbled upon her post from earlier today which is captioned Go, go, go! Stephanie is knitting like the wind to finish her Eeyore's Rainbow sock Christmas present and I wish her the very best (she will probably finish later today as she is a speed demon). This is the second Must Stash colorway that she knit for this past Christmas. So exciting!! And, it just so happens that a new batch of Eeyore's Rainbow was labeled today. I went ahead and dyed a few hot pink minis so you can knit like the Harlot if you please.
