Today's newsletter is full of last chances and new beginnings. From falling leaves to falling for fossils, these unique treats are not to be missed. After we take a closer look at these two sets, I'll be sharing a first look at two upcoming shawl designs and a teaser for next month's marvelous end minder debut!
Isn't fall just flying by? I can't believe October is almost over. While November will bring with it a hearty selection of new nifty notions and shawl pin styles, these special edition stitch markers will be fluttering away over the weekend. 🍂
The clever shape of these autumn leaves allows room to insert your needle tip and easily slip them from one needle to the next -- and with four sets to choose from, you can enjoy them no matter your needle size!
Technically, my Falling for Fossils Mystery Box was only available until October 25th. However, I like to give all of my wonderful readers an extra few days to join the fun. With Spin-osaurus Stitch Markers, Prehistoric Progress Keepers, and Tyra-knit-saurus End Minders, this dino-riffic box is truly a delight!
Now then, who's ready for a few surprises? You're the first people (outside of my own little ones) to see these shawls! 💙
This first one is still in progress, but I'm loving how it's working up. Since slub yarn is such a current style trend, I decided to give it a try for myself and see what creative ways I could work with it. This piece features perpendicular lines with rays of lace and a simple knit-purl edge. You'll be able to customize your piece depending on your preferred ratio of simple stitches to openwork.
This second piece is hot off my needles, and I can't wait to keep cozy with it as the weather cools. It's knit with three colorways of bulky yarn, and it offers a fun way to see how light, dark, and variegated colorways all work up in the same stitch pattern. I can't wait to share the other beautiful color palette I'm putting together for my second sample!
Finally, it's time to say my goodbyes for another two weeks. This sweet hidden face is a teaser for the brand new end minder shapes that you'll see in my next newsletter mailing. They're pretty pawsome, if I do say so myself! 🐶
