Socks Are For Suckers - A Twisted Exclusive!

The amazing gals at Twisted are at it again! This time, they've put together an exclusive Left Coast group of designers and dyers (your truly included! squee!) for a year of awesome patterns and fantastic yarn.

Check it out and spread the word!

Week of 10/18 Shop Updates

Merilon Sock and Pebble Sock each have some additions this week.

Sadly, this will be it for Merilon Sock for at least a month - my wholesale supplier is out. That means what's there is there until after Black Friday. I'm hoping to have more dyed up before Christmas, though.

Get Twisted

There’s gold mine of color ideas in people. Over the last couple years, some of my favorites have come from awesome folks doing custom orders - Glacier and Kelsey are two of my absolute favorite colors (and people). Midnight Emerald was the result of the first custom order we ever did, and it was terrifying at the time but turned out great!

Its time to turn that custom color theory around and create some interesting new shades based on the lovely ladies of Twisted. These women have been amazing to work with and fabulous friends, and a little honorific never hurt.

I’m just getting started, so I’m not inclined to announce a schedule just yet. Stay tuned and I will definitely keep posting about this little project.

Changes are afoot at Black Trillium Fibre Studio. We're relocating to Seattle at the end of the month, so help us lighten the load. All yarns and project bags are marked down anywhere from 15 to 50%. Sale will run from August 16th to August 22nd, after which time the shop will be closed until we settle in our new digs. Enjoy!
