Funky Fringe-y Cowls – This is a pattern that I’ll be publishing soon. Yarns I used in my four versions were mostly leftovers of FDW Bona Fide DK and FDW Beguiled DK. US6.

This cowl, as written, uses the equivalent of a full skein of DK weight yarn, 231 yards. It can be knit with a multitude of leftovers, a few skeins you’d like to put together, or one skein. The construction is the same now matter how many yarns you use. If you’d like to test knit this cowl for me and could get it done by Sept. 9th, please email me at [email protected].

We’re in the 3rd Quarter of the Monthly Makes program! If you want to participate but cannot access Ravelry at this time, please email me at [email protected] and we can discuss alternatives to you posting your projects in the FO thread.

Clarification on yarn shortages – I mentioned last episode that there are currently shortages of bare yarn in the yarn supply line. Because I am limited in what stock I can bring in at this time from my suppliers, I’ve subsequently taken down or limited the number of dye-to-order listings I have in the shop right now on my superwash bases in order to better control what I sell and do not accidentally sell something that I cannot fulfill. However, I do still have a good amount of stock on hand in most of my regular bases, so I’m still able to accommodate most special orders! Please email me at [email protected] if you’d like to place an order for something that is not available in-stock in the shop!

Shop Update: There will be a shop update on Saturday, 8/15, at 10 a.m. eastern. I’ll have my new Rain Clouds and Tie-Dye colorways in stock in both self-striping and variegated/semi-solid. There will also be a number of new colorblock yarn gradients in this update, some newly dyed self-striping colorways from my regular catalog, and also a healthy amount of Dyer’s Secret Stash, both OOAKs and “Oopsie” skeins. I’ll have everything listed in preview mode by end of the day on Thursday, so check in to get a preview!
