New Kit: Staked

I can not begin to tell you how much I love this pattern by Glenna C.  Twisted stitches.  Staked hearts.  Really, what’s not to love!  (Originally blogged here)

Today we release the Staked pattern (Rav link) from the October Smart-Ass Knitters Club package, as a kit.  (all pattern photos © Glenna C, 2010)

As we develop and release Buffy the Vampire Slayer inspired colours, more and more people ask me “What about our heroine? Where’s her colour?”  The truth is, Buffy was first.  And Then Buffy Staked Edward.  The End.  Misty midnight blues and plums, washed in vampire dust.  Awesome.  So today we’re also releasing this colourway to the public and it is available in 4 different sock bases for you to choose from.

Here’s what it looks like in the different bases:

Reunion Cowl

Have you met Natalie?

Reunion

My friend Natalie is a fabulous young designer.  On our trip to Rhinebeck this year, we were all fascinated by her Reunion Cowl…snatching it from her and wearing it every which way. (I’m pretty sure we all thought we could be just as cool and cute as Natalie if we only had one of these for our very own.)  And because of the lightweight design, it’s a natural match for our MCN Lace.  Natalie graciously agreed to adapt her design for us, and now there is a medium sized Reunion Cowl!

Still big enough to wrap around twice for a cozy neckwarmer!

Reunion

Natalie is having a contest on her blog for a kit:  a skein of MCN Lace + the pattern in the colour of your choice!  (We’ll even custom dye it for you, if you don’t see something you like).  Go visit Natalie now and enter!

Kits are available now!  $30 includes all the yarn and the pattern to make this yummy cowl!

To purchase any of the above yarn, please send me an email at orders AT indigodragonfly.ca (replace AT with “@”, no spaces) indicating which colours(s) you would like, where you live and whether you want it shipped surface or air mail. First email request for each yarn/fibre secures it. I will send you a paypal invoice for the full amount plus shipping and ship the packages off within 3-5 days. Shipping charges to the US will start at $5.44 for surface mail and $7.70 for air mail. Canada Post doesn’t make shipping charges for Canadian or International packages easy, so I will send you a shipping quote for your order for your approval. Best attempts are made to photograph colours accurately, however colours do differ from monitor to monitor (I’ve checked). I’ve also described the colours…and hope that helps. Custom orders are always welcomed! Just email me with what you have in mind.
