road trippin'

Untitled-1


My father and I have been on the road now for 3 weeks and I can honestly say that I'm still excited for our next stops. Don't get me wrong, I'm missing my family, the ones who aren't with us, my dogs and I think most importantly, my shower. There's something about showering in your own space, but I'm still giddy to get to our next yarn shop for a trunk show. We've made one big loop around the US and it's been an adventure. I've met some amazing people and seen some wonderful shops. We have lots of news when I get back to announce and a lot of fun projects underway already. That just seems to happen when you're around like minded knitters!

For now, come see our yarns and Dad and me in real life at Yarnology in Winona, MN, this Wednesday evening from 5-8pm or at Colorful Yarns in Centennial, CO, on Friday from 2-6pm. We'll have Puppies! Not many, but you maybe able to snag one for yourself if you come early! We will also have samples of the Number Collection and lots of choices in both Big Sister and Little Brother to choose from. Or, just come to say hi! I love meeting my fellow knitting friends in person.

Hugs & stitches!

vogue knitting live

IMG_0040


We arrived safe and sound in Pasadena a few days ago. Our trip down from Washington has been a smooth one thus far and we're loving the weather in So Cal right now. It was our first day at the VKL Pasadena show this evening, for a little market preview. It was a wonderful time and lovely meeting new folks and seeing beloved familiar faces.

The beautiful and talented Kathy Cadigan has come along for part of the adventure and is here shooting some footage for a neat little project we have brewing and she's been fantastic at forcing us to slow down and take some pictures (and posting them for us!), so our knitting friends everywhere can see them. Hence the great pic above.

Also, Little Brother and the YOTH tech team have done it again! If you aren't going to be able to make it to VKL this time or one of our events in the near future, you can live vicariously through other shoppers by watching our current lifestream.

Hugs & stitches!

come visit with us

We might be coming to a LYS or event near you. We've been busy little bees getting ready for our next big trip. We are headed to Stash in Corvalis, then down to Knitterly in Petaluma, followed by Unwind in Burbank, in less than two weeks on our way to the new Vogue Knitting Live in Pasadena. We'll have lots of yarn in our palette colors, exclusive Puppies that we only sell at shows and events, printed Number Collection patterns and unique new goodies that we've been finding and sourcing for you. The west coast won't be the end of our far-reaching trip; we'll be headed to Nashville for Stitches South right after VKL and then over to The Knot House for a unique indie pop up shop during the Maryland Sheep & Wool Festival. Check out our events page for details, dates and locations. There are new stops added frequently. We can't wait to meet and visit with everyone in person. That's the best part for us.

Gudrun Johnston just released a stunning new pattern, VĂ©ronique, with innovative construction and striking details. It uses our Big Sister yarn and is a beauty. Gudrun just posted a KAL thread in her fabulous Ravelry group. Check it out if you are interested in joining. I'm definitely planning to knit myself one. It has "V's" running down the center panel!

Happy knitting!

big sister kal + restock

I am thrilled to announce the Big Sister KAL! Check out our Ravelry KAL thread. Kate Oates, the wonderful designer and friend, behind this gorgeous cardigan pattern will be here to KAL along with us. I’m still picking the color I would like to use for mine… in the meantime, here are the simple, laid back details of our KAL:


bigsistersweater


1) Cast on the Big Sister pattern with us anytime between April 1st and April 30th,
2) using YOTH Yarns Big Sister,
3) post a progress picture(s) of your Big Sister cardi in your Big Sister Ravelry project,
4) & be sure to tag it “bigsisterkal”.

That’s it! Simply cast on the cardi with Kate and I, and make sure to tag and link your projects to the Big Sister pattern and yarn. No deadlines for finishing, just plain knitting camaraderie.

To make it even more fun, Kate and I are offering up some fun prizes:

Grand Prize - One e-book of your choice from Kate’s big selection and 4 skeins of YOTH Yarns of your choice from our in stock colors and bases!

Runner Up Prize - One 3-pack of single patterns of your choice from Kate and 2 skeins of YOTH Yarns of your choice from our in stock colors and bases.

2nd Runner Up Prize - A single pattern of your choice from Kate and 1 skein of YOTH Yarns of your choice from our in stock colors and bases.

I’m pretty positive this will be a go-to in all of our wardrobes.

In addition to the KAL news, we also restocked all of Raw Palette colors in our Big Sister base last night. Get 'em while they're hot!

Hugs & stitches!

fresh + restock

Visit our site for our latest palette and restocked colors.

We were so thrilled to receive such a warm welcome at Stitches West and we've been busy restocking and updating our YOTH Yarns page since. The new Fresh Palette is up and available online now, plus we've restocked some of the ever popular neutral Raw Palette colors. If we're still out of stock on some of your favorites, more is on its way, we promise!

In other really great news, a friend and fellow designer, Kate Oates, has released a brand new sweater pattern happily named Big Sister. The length of this sweater, simple elements and thoughtful design touches make this a new favorite. This open front cardi is seriously so me, and I can't wait to cast on! Join us for a KAL with this lovely sweater in the month of April! Details will be posted in our Ravelry group soon.
