May the 4th Be With You!

fuzzball shawl

Happy 'May the 4th Be With You' Day! Today just so happens to be our favorite not-so-traditional holiday of the year, and with the new movie about a well known scoundrel coming out on May 25th, our excitement is out of this world! How will we be celebrating our best-loved faraway galaxy, you might ask? With our Fuzzball Bandolier Shawl kit, of course!

Inspired by the most adored Fuzzball in all the land, near and far (Like, really far. Outer Space-far. Different galaxy-far.), each kit comes with one skein of Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock in an exclusive color, aptly named RRWWWGG!, two solid Staccatos, one in Chocolate and one in Pewter, and the download code for the Fuzzball Bandolier Shawl pattern, designed by our very own Rachel Roden, of Unraveled Designs!

What do you say, Rebels and Imperials? You have three weeks. Make Fuzzball proud - get to knittin', and you'll have your very own bandolier shawl to wear to the movie theater in a galaxy near you!

May Flowers bring Plymouth!

Continuing our 'May the 4th Be With You' festivities, we thought we'd share 4 of our most-loved Plymouth stash staples with you! Afterall, Plymouth rocks! Encore Worsted comes in a large variety of colors, perfect for galactic knits of all kinds! If you have younglings in your life, then Dreambaby DK is perfectly soft and machine washable, so you won't have to stress, if your little ones come home covered in moondust! Rounding out our superb stash staples, DK Merino Superwash and Worsted Merino Superwash! 100% wool and machine washable, being frozen in carbonite will be a distant worry, when you knit with these yarns!

Micro Brew Stash Club

What do Jeannette Rankin, Emma Gatewood, Frida Kahlo, and Molly Brown all have in common? Other than being incredibly remarkable women, these four ladies are also the first four Bold Betties featured in our 2018 Micro-Brewed Stash Club! Much like a certain coil bun-clad heroine from deep space, these strong women made their mark on history! (Jimmy's sweet pup, our very own Princess Leia, is quite the character. She's a rebel, but to us she's royalty... and occasional pizza thief. She's snuck a slice or two out of our Bean Breakroom!)

Bold Betties Microbrew Stash Club

We, along with our indie-dyer friends, are celebrating the accomplishments of one Bold Betty each month, with a specially dyed colorway inspired by a Betty of the dyers' choice. As a member of the Micro-Brewed Stash Club, you'll receive one skein of hand-dyed, fingering weight yarn and a Bold Betty themed coaster. Don't miss your chance to sign-up for our May shipment - we have limited spots available!
