Lollipop

Filed under: New Colorways,Store Updates — by SpinningYarnsOnline @ 4:08 pm

I’ve just added a limited edition colorway to the site.  Take a look at Lollipop

This brand new beautiful colorway was designed and hand painted by my younger daughter.  She is big into fashion and Project Runway and clothing design so when she asked me if she could paint some yarn for Spinning Yarns I told her she certainly could.  Here is her creation.  I think it is quite nice and would make a young girl a groovy pair of socks!  It will be on the site for a limited time and is available in both sport and fingering weights. 

We are still featuring certain yarns at closeout prices.  There are only a few skeins left and once they are gone, they are gone for good.  Go check out the site and get them while they are still available.

It’s Time for a Margarita

Filed under: New Colorways — by SpinningYarnsOnline @ 12:00 pm

The weather cooperated.  We actually have the sun shining today so I was able to take a picture of Margarita.

It’s not the greatest picture of yarn I have ever taken but for now it will have to do.  Margarita has been given its name by my friend Beth M.  She took one look at the yarn and said “Margarita!!  It’s a Margarita!!!”  Hmmm, I wonder how she came up with that name?  I guess she is quite aquainted with margaritas….  As an aside, I knew someone in college who drank a few too many margaritas and got sick.  Like really, really sick for a whole weekend.  She spent the rest of her college career claiming that she had the flu that weekend.  Yeah right, the margarita flu.  Crazy college days….

A quick update:  as we are going to the Mass. Sheep and Wool Festival this weekend,  any order received between 5/23 and 5/26 will not be processed until 5/27th.  Sorry for any inconvenience but the yarn and sheep and roving are calling me. 

I spoke to my brother yesterday (whose farm we will be staying at) and by this weekend he should have 2 market lambs, another show sheep and two baby cows.   (Yes, I am aware that baby cows are called calves although I have heard that that question was removed from the childrens’ IQ test because not enough kids/people knew that…It was skewing the results.  Baby Cows just sounds so much cuter.  I have calves on my legs and they are not cute in the least bit, so baby cows it will be!)

Enjoy the yarn!!!

Two New Colorways, More on the Way!

Filed under: New Colorways — by SpinningYarnsOnline @ 10:29 am

We have new colorways up on the site.  They are in stock and ready to go!  The first is Confetti. 

Confetti

Confetti is a lovely mix of yellow, blues, greens and purples.  It is painted in a random pattern so no two will be alike. 

Next up we have Blueberry Buckle.

Blueberry Buckle has a nice mix of browns, gunmetal gray and blues.  This colorway is would make a wonderful pair of “man socks”.   

Both Blueberry Buckle and Confetti are available in fingering weight and sport weight.  They are up on the site (http://www.SpinningYarnsOnline.com) and ready for your next project.  One more colorway will be in tomorrow’s post.  I have to wait for the rain to stop so I can take a decent picture of it.

 Enjoy the new colorways!!!  There are more to come in the future.

SEMI SOLIDS ARE HERE!

Filed under: New Colorways,Store Updates — by SpinningYarnsOnline @ 8:51 am

We’ve just added our new Semi Solid line of colorways.  There are eight colors available in both fingering weight and sport weight 100% superwash merino wool.  Here are a few pictures:

This is Teal.  We also have Gun Metal.

And Burnt Orange.

The Semi Solids are hand painted so there are tone variations but they are much more subdued and subtle than the variegated multis.  These will be perfect for lace work in socks, shawl, scarves and the like.   Enjoy!!!
