Well, we’ve made it. Say it with me: three-day weekend!! (Labor Day holiday in the US.) What could be better than THREE WHOLE DAYS to knit, sew, sleep, go hiking, eat nachos, not wear real pants……whatever it is you like to do, here are three wonderful days to do it. Even if you’re lucky enough to truly enjoy your day job, you have to admit that three day weekends are glorious.
SO…to celebrate this lovely weekend — the “official” ending of summer and launching into [my favorite season] autumn — TLMYC is having a sale!
I try not to “sell” my shop on here tooooooo much, but I couldn’t resist letting you all in on the fun. 🙂
If you follow me on Instagram, you may know about this already…but from now through Monday, Sept. 1, you can get 10% off your entire order by using the coupon code LABORDAY10.
I’m especially excited to be having this promotion this weekend because I’ve been working hard for the past few weeks to get more of a variety of items in my shop. Check ’em out:
This is a new color way that I call ‘Seaweed‘. It’s dyed on my Wanderer Base (80/20 super wash merino/nylon, 2-ply fingering weight) and there are currently two (2) avaliable!
This lovely color is the result of a new dyeing technique experiment — but I’m glad to say that the results are stunning! It’s always a little difficult to tell what the result is going to be when the yarn and dye are steeping in the pot or pan. This makes for some anxiety about unpleasant results sometimes…but when the big reveal looks like this, it’s a wonderful surprise! 🙂
Another exciting announcement is the addition of a new yarn base! Meet my new sparkle base — Glitter Sock:
(Shown here dyed in the color way ‘Exploding TARDIS‘)
As you can tell, the shimmer of this yarn is slight…but it’s just enough to give your socks that little something *extra*. Glitter Sock is similar in appearance to my Wanderer Sock base — 2-ply fingering with a lovely twist — but is a mix of 75/20/5 super wash merino/nylon/stellina.
(Glitter Sock in ‘Elsa‘ colorway)
In addition to the new colorways and yarn bases I’ve added, I’m also glad to say that TLMYC is (finally!) officially carrying project bags as well!
If you’re craving a little Halloween already — like I am — these bags are perfect for getting you in the spirit! There are only Halloween bags listed currently, but there are many more to come, I can assure you.
Okay, that’s enough of a preview for now… (Whew — why do I feel like I was just on an infomercial… ha!) Well, I hope you all enjoyed seeing what I’ve been working on lately. I’ve been in such a creative place for the past couple of weeks, and I’ve been having the best time creating these new items! 🙂
Now I’m off to work on my newest project — Effortless Cardigan by Hannah Fettig. (Oh, did I not mention? : P Pictures to come soon!)
What are you working on over this long weekend?
