First Dibs! A Yarn Club

Goodness, what’s this?! Another yarn club? Am I mad?

Yes, quite possibly.

This one is a little different from the others, though.

Yarn Club on sale 10am Friday 8 February

The details:

Strictly limited to 20 places

Purchasing a place will cost NZ $54 plus shipping ($4 NZ, $7 Australia, $10 ROW)

What you get:

4 x Knitsch Sock 100% merino 4ply

One week prior to shipping, you will receive an email containing images of brand new Knitsch Sock colourways. From these, you can select as many or as few skeins of each colour as you wish.

If your yarn selection total is more than 4 x 50g skeins, we will email your final cost for payment prior to dispatch.

Yarn will be shipped all in one parcel on 4 March, 2013

As usual, your parcel will contain sweet treats!

Lucky place-getters will not only see the brand colours before anyone else, you will touch them too! New colours will be launched at Unwind Retreat in Dunedin on 8 March, and won’t be online until the week following.

Simple, simple, easy peasy!

Wool nuts

Last night the boy was hassling me for not paying him enough attention, and joked that he should hang himself up with my wool so that I focus on him just for a minute. He said I was ‘Wool nuts’, to which I replied, what like walnuts?

It is pretty nuts right now – all hands on deck to get the Yarn Club out (there are a few places left, if you’re quick, you might nab one!).

So here is a warm fuzzy story to keep you entertained in the meantime…though I was trying to spot some Knitsch yarns in there as they panned around the shop 😉

Hooray! We have two winners for the It’s a Tree super amazing awesome prize draw!

Catherine M
wins a three month subscription to the Flights of Fancy Yarn Club


(you know who you are :D) – wins 2 skeins of sock yarn and 2 of 12 ply. 

With over 500 contributions I was biting my nails a bit to see who was going to win – and at the last minute decided to do a second chance draw as well – although if I had my way everyone would get something. But the random number generator turned up 158 and 427 (you’ll have to believe me – the screen shot doesn’t work on this laptop).

And – the Flights of Fancy Yarn Club goes on sale today!

I work at Wanda Harland in Petone a few days a week, and Martha is the best boss ever. Seriously. Except for one thing – she keeps teasing me with this bag. I want it. I must have it.
