Happy Fall! This time of year seems so fleeting, yet somehow we’ve packed a lot of life in already. We continue to grow our business, work our desk jobs, and spend time with kids, families, and friends. Life is full, and we are always looking for ways to balance it all, savor what we can and not drown in the “busy”. This is why we love connecting with you at expos and trunk shows. This is why we knit while working - or in Kat’s case, walking! - just to finished that WIP a little sooner. This is why we wrap our loved ones in hand knits and why we snap pictures of small moments in our days - do you follow us on Instagram yet?
One of my favorite late-fall traditions is Candletime, which is a practice that helps bring a little light into the ever-darkening evenings this time of year. The idea is simple - when you come home at night, light a candle, grab a special drink, take a deep breath, and be present in just that moment. One of our favorite drinks for this special time is spiced cider - we are from Michigan after all! We sometimes reach for warm apple cider with a doughnut or indulge in hard cider spiced with cinnamon from our favorite local brewery. And because, when we get together with fiber, dye, and adult beverages, we get a little silly - and very excited to share a special little treat for this time of year!
We are offering a limited run of a new color – Spiced Cider: A warm rich cinnamon with hints of orange and blush. Starting on Halloween, and running through Cyber Monday, you can pre-order Spiced Cider in select baseweights on our Etsy site (Savor, Sole, Spunky, Steady, and Siren DK - a new base weight!). And, because one is never enough, we also offer two additional colors to pair alongside Spiced Cider, either Plum - a deep purple perfect for hats or cowls - or Patina, a steely green gray from our newest color lookbook. When the quantities run out, or Cyber Monday ends, we will stop taking orders and start working on delivery, with yarn at your door before Christmas! We hope you will indulge along with us in this savoring of late fall, crisp days, cool nights, warm woolens, glowing candles, and little treats.
