Edited to add- the kits sold out in a record 4 hours. Wow. Thank you for your interest! If you missed out, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org for possible waitlist.
The Simply Socks Yarn Company 8th Anniversary kit is now available. More pictures and details can be found here, and keep in mind there are actually TWO kits. They are very similar- same yarn and accessories in each one, but one has a striped bag (shown above) and one has a polka dot bag. And if one sells out before the other and you see the dreaded "no product found" link, then check the other kit. I do have more striped than polka dot, because that's the one I prefer. There's just something about the black bag with pencil thin stripes that really gets to me. Though, I'm a fan of polka dots too, which is why I couldn't resist giving two options.
Since you may want to tack on things to this kit (which costs less than most of our other kits) to take advantage of free US shipping at $85, we do have other new things in the shop this week. Opal's newest Handwerk and Hobby collection is quite awesome. And I have restocks of the Smoky Eyes and the Sweet & Spicy collections, which have been very popular.
And if you were hoping to make a sweater out of Madelinetosh Merino Light or Tosh DK (like my whole SSYC Team seems to be doing this summer), I do have sweater quantities of most colors right now. So you'll be able to get 4 or 5 (or more) in the same dyelot if you order in the near future. Oh so many gorgeous colors right now. I even have the four colorblock colorways in Tosh DK right now (you'll see them marked as part of the colorblock series under the color name). Shown below in Ash/Red Leaf.
And if all that yarn isn't enough, we have also been dyeing up a storm in our Poste Yarn studio, bringing back the rainbow-making Emerald City and Yellow Brick Road from the St. Patty's Day Kit. Combining these two skeins gives you jewel-toned rainbow socks, legwarmers, mitts, hats, you name it. We also have redyed Buckeye, Green Bay Pride, and several other of the sports team and Wizard House series colors. Oh, and more highlighter colors too! We've been busy.
I expect shipping all the kits out to their new homes will keep us quite busy over the next few days. Thank you for giving us a fun week! While we often ship out the same day, please allow us a few extra days to get orders out, as we do pack everything with great care (and enjoy browsing the shop to pick out your orders). It takes us time and I do hope you'll be patient with us.
