After an extended absence (while busy working on the yet-to-be-revealed kit), we will be updating our Etsy shop at 4pm on Friday, Feb. 5, with these exciting colorways fresh from the sisters’ studio —
When Megan (of the Stockinette Zombies blog and podcast) asked us to dye a custom colorway as the grand prize for their year-long self-striping KAL, we jumped at the chance. Since their KAL lasted 12 months, we decided to tackle a 12 striper, with each stripe representing a month of the year in its birthstone color. Available on our both Big Sky Base and our Yellowstone Base, the striping sequence consists of 5 rows each of Garnet (Jan), Amethyst (Feb), Aquamarine (Mar), Diamond (Apr), Emerald (May), Alexandrite (June), Ruby (July), Peridot (Aug), Sapphire (Sept), Pink Tourmaline (Oct), Topaz (Nov), and Zircon (Dec).

My Bloody Valentine
Inspired by the 1980’s horror movie, this colorway is a dark twist on the traditional Valentine’s holiday. Dyed on our Big Sky Base, the striping consists of 5 rows each of coal mining gray, bloody red, mine shaft black, don’t break my heart light pink, candy box dark pink, and Valentine’s party purple.
We’ve been singing the cold weather blues here in Montana this blustery winter season. Named after the classic Muddy Waters song, this self-striper was dyed on our Big Sky Base, and the striping sequence consists of 5-6 rows of arctic blue, 2-3 rows of icy gray, 5 rows of deep chill, 3 rows of icy gray, 5 rows of numb toes, and 3 rows of frostbite. Brrr!
The Star Wars bug has definitely hit the sisters. Inspired by “The Force Awakens”, we dyed this self-striper on our Canyon Creek MCN Base. The striping sequence is 5 rows each of R2-D2 blue, storm troopers white, Millennium Falcon grey, Chewbacca brown, BB-8 orange, and The First Order black. This yarn is so luxurious, it’s out of this galaxy!
Watch out for flying comets! A new variegated yarn has been added to our shop. Any project is sure to shimmer in this galactic colorway, which was dyed on our Stillwater Sparkle Base with hints of sparkle throughout.
