Dyeing for Fall!!

Autumn is fast approaching. It has always been my favorite time of year. I love the smells - crisp morning air, rain, school supplies, yarn, fresh split logs for the fire, bread... all the things that come with the return to school days and the preparation for colder weather. I also love all the colors, especially the changing of the leaves.

Ferndale Shawl in Twist Monkey "Old Money"
This year I'm hard at work preparing a dye-namic explosion of yarn choices for you. There are new yarn bases, which I wrote about before, and some fun new colors. There are also a couple of exciting new kits on the way - the first of which will be the second edition of the Signature Series. This kit includes the Ferndale Shawl pattern, two (2) skeins of Twist Monkey in "Old Money" and a coordinating project bin in exclusive cooperation with Harbor House Baskets - a very luxurious kit indeed! This kit is available in very limited quantities, so you'll want to move fast once they go on sale. If you'd like to make an early reservation, either contact me on Ravelry in the Dye Monkey Yarns Group or email me directly. Early reservations get first notification when kits go on sale, prior to public announcement.

Shop Update: New Colorways for Fall!

 I've just updated my Etsy Shop with new colorways!

Drusilla on Tap Monkey fingering
Two of my favorites this season are Drusilla and Night Shadows.

Drusilla is a strong, powerful, magical and decidedly evil woman. She's also loyal, loving and beautiful, but cross her and she'll call upon the flying monkeys.

Lovely walnut wood tones from deep browns to tawny tans, accented with glorious rich purples and lavenders. This yarn was kettle dyed, but due to some clever techniques, it is likely to self stripe if you knit socks with it.

Night Shadows on Hip Hop Monkey fingering


Night Shadows

Curious shapes appear in the dark of night, especially under a full moon.

Deep navy, black-navy shadows, full moon white and many interesting shades in between.

Well, this wasn't what you were expecting when you went to my site today, I'm sure. Things have changed, in some cases quite dramati...
