September 2018 ~ What's new

 

September 2018

Hello Friends,

I hope you all are having a wonderful fall so far!  I can see on Instagram that some of you up in Canada are already getting some snow!  What's up with that?  It's still 90+ degrees here, we are so ready for sweater weather!  We have been super busy in the studio dyeing a ton (almost literally!) of yarn for what we have planned.  We are excited to announce that we are going to Stitches So. Cal in Pasadena this November.  We have new yarns and patterns that we will be introducing at Stitches, but we'll give you a  preview today!  

It is such a busy time of year for all of us but we want to take just a minute to thank each of you for your continued support of our small, family run yarn company, we couldn't do this without you!  We encourage all of you to take a minute or two during your day and enjoy the return of cooler weather and the beautiful fall colors!  

Thank you all so much for being part of this amazing community of yarn lovers, we are looking forward to a fun filled fall. 

Happy Knitting and Crocheting!

Tiffany & Lindsey


 
 After going to Stitches West last year, we decided to take a leap of faith and sign up to be a vendor at the brand new Stitches So. Cal in Pasadena this November 1st - 4th! We are so excited to have the chance to showcase our yarn to thousands of yarn lovers from all over the country! For anyone who has ever been before, you know it is a weekend filled of crazy fun! Knitters and crocheters can be found in every nook and cranny of this giant convention center.  This event is THE perfect place to make new friends, learn new techniques and spoil yourself rotten (hey, you deserve it)! 
WHERE TO FIND US AT STITCHES!
If you are planning to attend this event, please stop by and introduce yourself! We would love to put a face to your name! 
FASHION SHOW
Not only are we going to have a booth at Stitches, but we are proud to participate in one of the most exciting events of the weekend-- THE FASHION SHOW! Friday night, is an evening filled with models and amazing designs. We are so happy to team up with Sandra Butler Designs to showcase two AMAZING patterns she has created.

SCAVENGER HUNT & STITCH MARKER SWAP
SCAVENGER HUNT: Let's be real, who doesn't love a good scavenger hunt?? As part of the weekend festivities, we will be participating in a scavenger hunt where participants will search for and scan a QR code hidden somewhere in our booth, for a chance to win a door prize! Desert Bloom Yarns will be giving away a two skein kit with pattern! #StitchesScavenger

STITCH MARKER SWAP: Another fun event of the weekend we will join in on is a favorite among the Stitches events. The Stitch Marker Swap, this is an awesome way to collect some amazing stitch markers from vendors and new or old friends throughout the convention!  If you go, be sure to bring some stitch markers to swap, it is a free event.  Just go to the booths listed in the program that are participating, take a marker and give a marker.  It's that easy!  Just pure fun and nothing else!
NEW YARN BASE
Introducing our newest yarn base, DREAMY!
 
This is a luxurious blend of 72% Kid Mohair, 28% Silk in a Lace weight with 459 yards. This gorgeous yarn is super soft to the skin and knits up like a dream whether you hold it with another yarn or alone. We have had some fun dyeing up various colors and playing with new patterns. If you are interested, here are a couple of patterns to try with our Dreamy yarn.  Check out "Like A Cloud" cardigan by Jojolocat. Pattern can be found on Raverly.  This pattern uses 1 fingering weight and 1 mohair held together. It is truly amazing! Or how about another new pattern of hers called "Elton". This pattern uses 1 fingering weight and 1 mohair to create a fun, striped cardigan.

This yarn dyes up in all Desert Bloom Yarn Colors. When purchasing, please note your color choice in the memo section upon check-out!

Buy
One last thing... I know the Prickly Pear Yarn Club is technically closed but we still have a few spots left to fill before we start dyeing yarn for the October installment.  So, if you missed signing up for this amazing yarn club, hop on over to the website now and get yours today.  We will close this out on October 1st.  :-) .   Click here to order yours
