Giveaway winner — and yakking it up (plus coupon code)

Congratulations to SusanfromStatenIsland — you are the lucky winner of a copy of Self-Striping Yarn Studio. I already heard back from Susan and her enthusiastic response was a joy to behold!

Coming up soon: book reviews….I’ve got several lovely books to review now that we’re getting closer to autumn. In the meantime, enjoy this Hellenic-inspired coupon code at my Artfire shop. I just uploaded a new sock yarn with 20% yak (plus 70% superwash merino and 10% nylon).

My photos seem a little dark but the yak yarn starts out a slightly deeper beige than most sock yarns, which are creamy white.

I also restocked Meritage, a lovely fingering weight wool, not superwash, but has nice grab (great for lace) but still feels great with some interesting multis:


as well as semisolids.

The last time I checked, the US was up to 12 medals, so I’m offering a coupon code good for 12% off your purchase (expires 8/12). Use the code RIO12 at checkout.
