A sale, a contest, and a cat

THE SALE"



We hit 1,000 sales!!!!

Can you believe it - there are 1,000 skeins of our yarn out there in the world...!

And since you guys are the reason we hit this completely awesome and amazing milestone, we've decided to say thank you with a little discount.

From now until the end of August, use the code 1000YARNS in the shop and get 15% off your order!

 Thank you so much - you guys rock!




THE CONTEST:


I've released another pattern! Introducing Riverrun!
A wearable men's sock pattern, perfect for that sock-loving guy in your life. To celebrate this, I'm giving away five copies of the pattern!  Simply leave a comment on this post by Saturday, August 25. I'll do a random drawing on the 26th for five winners.


THE CAT:

Congrats on the major milestone!
And from one who knows...a little kitty slobber only improves the quality of wool.

See ... a coupon code ... that was way too much temptation. Too bad someone got to that second skein of copper penny before I did; I don't think one skein is enough for what I have in mind. Oh well, I'll just have to console myself with both skeins of the gorgeous Badlands colourway! And I'm totally blaming you on the next Surmount the Stash update!!

I will be knitting Riverrun sooner or later, but I'm thinking of Sagittarius next after I finish my glorious Morning Glories. Both are Christmas knitting!

Congrats! You guys must be so happy.
I agree with Minding my Own Stitches, a coupon code was just too tempting :-)
Just had to snatch up some twinkle cat

Wow, that is a lot of sales! Congratulations! I am sure that cute kitty had nothing to do with that ball of yarn on the floor, just because he is sitting beside it.... ;)

lexa said...

Yay for 1000 skeins! Love your sock pattern. :)

Knatolee said...

Those are some seriously awesome socks, O Knitting Goddess!

Zenitude said...

1000 congratulations to you! Great looking socks again and the cat is doing what cats do best...getting into trouble!

Karen Majors said...

Very pretty pattern. I've purposely made little balls of yarn for my kitty to play with so he will leave what I'm knitting alone.

Uh-oh! Busted, Mr. Rockster!
