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.

By the way, we've also added some new links to our site: Marketplace, where we will be adding all sorts of sweet knick knacks that are not just yarn, Events, a calendar of all our next stops, so you can come meet us in person, & Errata for pattern goof-ups that just plain happen, but you need to know about.

Hugs & stitches!

number collection + restock

We just got back from Stitches West yesterday and what a whirlwind! We had such an amazing time in California and the Stitches West event. It was fun to meet everyone in person, chat with folks about what they are knitting and what fun things they were buying. It was also great to see all the other lovely vendors and friends that were there. Thank you so much to everyone who stopped by our booth, supported our brand, and sent us lots of love even after the event.

The bad news is that Stitches has cleaned out our stock! The good news is that we had 5 big boxes of yarn sitting on our doorstep when we got home. We've added the new yarn in and if you are one of the folks waiting on some Raw Palette colors, I would recommend hopping over to the shop and seeing if we have what you want available. We've also sent a large order to our dyehouse since being home and they are working hard on restocking the remaining colors as quickly as possible. Thank you for being patient with us while we get refilled.

Just an update on the Fresh Palette, we are not quite ready to launch those online. If you visited our booth this past weekend, you had a chance to see the colors in person; however, we do not have our photography ready yet for online purchasing and there are a final few blues and greens that are getting some color tweaking to be just right. Plus, I have a fun KAL and beautiful new sweater pattern by a friend of mine that we will be debuting with the launch. It'll be worth the wait, I promise!

And, last but not least, the Number Collection. We released and introduced our first knitwear collection at Stitches West. We were so thrilled to have received such a loving reception and I'm happy to say that the collection is now available online to purchase on Ravelry. There's even a bunch of little KAL's that have popped up in our YarnOnTheHouse group. I need to join in and knit 004, because we could use a try on sample for our next two shows in April, VKL Pasadena & Stitches South in Nashville. Here's some eye candy from the Collection...

It'll be interesting to see which patterns are favorites on Rav. There were definitely two that stood out at Stitches: 002 & 005, and I know which are my two favorites: 001 & 006. Which ones do you like?

stitches west here we come

Can you believe that I've never been to Stitches West?! This will be my first time. Little Brother and I, along with family and friends, will be vendors and have our own space at Stitches West this year, booths 1040, 1042, 1139 & 1141 (all in one location, check out the map for more info). It should be a really good time! We're bringing what my mom likes to call puppies... our gradient sticks. When we first dyed them up, she said that they're just like puppies, because you don't want them to leave home! In addition to the one-of-kind hand dyed skeins and gradients, we will have all of our Raw and Fresh Palette yarns along, a bunch of knitted samples, lots of little chachkas that you are going to swoon over, plus the debut of our Number Collection, and wait for it, wait... Shannon Cook and Jane Richmond are coming to our booth and doing book signings! I'm so excited, I can hardly stand it. Stop by to visit with the ladies, snag a copy of their beautiful new Seasonless Mini Collection and get autographs:

Shannon & Jane
Friday the 20th - 1:00 - 3:00 PM
Saturday the 21st - 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM

We'll also have lots of entertaining and obnoxious gizmos along for the ride. I don't want to give away all the surprises, let's just say a little bit of Vegas, and Little Bro is working on setting up his GoPro and streaming a live feed for those you unfortunates who are unable to attend (so sad!). No promises, but check back to see if he can make it happen. We'll also have a Ravelry stand with two IPads for your convenience. I know how helpful it is to look up patterns on a bigger screen when you need some info. Or, you can just come by to say hi and kick up your feet on our loveseat! Here's a sneak peek to entice.
