      #secretgardenalong contest winners

      January 21, 2016

      As many of you who follow me on Instagram know, I've been mostly out of the studio with a winter cold, which has put me woefully behind on choosing photo contest winners for the knitalong that closed just after Christmas -- our delightful #secretgardenalong. I'm finally on the mend and happily digging back into studio goings-on. One of the things I just love is seeing Little Skein kits being knit, reading happy posts in our Ravelry group and seeing your inspired Instagram photos. The #secretgardenalong has been so inspiring to me and, I hope, to you too! In the Yarniacs group, you can see photos of incredibly inspired projects. In the Little Skein Ravelry group, there are even more inspired...

      We are in the full swing of shipping here at Studio Little Skein, so it seems like an opportune time to mention our holiday shipping deadlines: Friday, December 11 -- last day to preorder a Salutations kit (or anything from the Salutations collection) and receive it before Christmas.  *Depending on how well I've predicted yarn colors, I may need to change this.

      Black Friday stocking extravaganza

      November 27, 2015

      I am a fool for the holidays, and part of my extreme enjoyment of all things gingerbread, twinkly lights, and Christmas tree, I also believe that holiday-ing shouldn't start until after Thanksgiving. Two years ago, I started a new tradition for the shop: the Little Skein "Black Friday" stocking extravaganza! This year I am again delighted to kick off the holiday season with a brand new and utterly adorable ornament kit, holiday bags, and new treasures of nearly every shape and size. Everything will be ready to purchase beginning at 9:00 a.m. Pacific Time today. Order early for the best shopping choices, because when our stock is gone from this collection, it's gone. (No preorders, just ready to ship to...
