90% Knitting – Episode 375 – Quiet Comforts

Welcome to Episode 375…thanks for stopping by! You will still find show notes below with time stamps and links to project pages, patterns, and other things I’ve mentioned. I use non-Ravelry links when possible, but any link preceded by an asterisk means that it does go to Ravelry, so be aware of that if Rav is not an accessible place for you. All of my contact/website/social media info is listed at the end of the show notes!


Intro (Also sorry…the light was really weird today! Things are rather blown out and I appear to have a kind of spooky pallor at points…O.o….)

You’ll find all of the info about the Down Cellar Studio Pigskin Party here.

My Birthday Weekend sale is going on through the end of the day on Monday, 9/27! Use coupon code BIRTHDAY20 for 20% off most shop purchases (gift certificates and Mix & Match Minis excluded.)

The first Encore! Yarn & Fiber Club shipment will be going out this week by Thursday!

My Halloween colorways shop update will be happening this Friday, October 1, at 5 p.m. eastern!

Due to an already full work load, I’m not planning additional regular updates through October, but do follow the @fibernymphdyeworks account on Instagram and/or subscribe to the newsletter on the website to be notified of anything new that does get added to the shop next month! I’m also putting a hold on additional custom orders (other than dye-to-order items that are listed in the shop) for October. I’ll resume regular updates and special orders in November.

56:26 – What’s bringing me joy this week!

Quiet moments, SLEEP, and comfort things…like LotRs and my hand knits! 🙂 I hope you’re finding quiet moments and comfort in your world these days too!
