Total Geek Out Yarn Club
In 2019, Dragon Hoard Yarn will be doing it's first monthly yarn club! Being true to myself has been something that I wanted to embrace more this year, and bring it out in my yarn. If you know me at all, you know that I am a huge geek. From watching anime shows with my husband, to dressing up for Comic Con every year, I completely represent the geek community.
With this, every month I will be picking one of my favorite geek-y shows or obsessions, and creating a colorway representation of it. For January, I have decided to do an exclusive colorway for "Steven Universe". To be honest, the first episode of the show I watched, I thought it was going to be stupid. After watching a few episodes, I began to like it. Now, I have been able to fully appreciate the deeper meanings behind the episodes, and am obsessed.
If you have children or anyone in your life that could benefit from self-acceptance, this is the show for them. It is very appropriate for all ages, and shows how to deal with real-life problems in a respectful manner as a kid. I am very excited to bring you all my interpretation of the show.
I cannot even begin to express my excitement over this cropped sweater! Inspired by the new Netflix series, "The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina", this cropped sweater is perfect to go with any outfit, and to add that devilish flair into your style.
I have designed the sweater to be in sizes XS-5X, and will compliment all body shapes. I love how the cropped design follows the natural curves of the female body, because we need to showcase that more!
I am currently in the testing phase of the design process, and cannot wait to get this out to you all! Release date will be on February 12, just in time for a Valentines cast on! I will of course be making many kits to go with the sweater, and even coming up with a new colorway line to showcase it.
Along with many other new things that are coming to the shop, I have been very busy the past few weeks with coming up with some new color collections!! I have been very inspired by the idea of girl power, and wanted to highlight some of my favorite bad ass women movies and shows!
Featured this week is "The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina", which is a darker version of Sabrina than we grew up with... and I am obsessed!

Coven, The Cunning, Fate, Witching Hour, Ritual, Salem, The Book of the Beast, and Necromancy.
This collection will be featured this week, and may not be dyed up again until the beginning of February. If you wanted a skein or two, this will be the week to get it!! I plan on making many of these colorways into kits for the Spellman Sweater at the end of the month. There will also be limited amounts of mini skein sets available this week.
In The Next Few Weeks
This is about to be the busiest three months of my life! I will be heading to New York City for the first time in two weeks, to showcase the new Spellman Sweater at Vogue Knitting Live, and catch up with some knitting friends. Both February and March have equally exciting plans, but we will talk about those in the coming months.
The next yarn collection to be showcased will be the Mamma Mia, Here We Go Again collection:
From left to right: When I Kissed the Teacher, I Have A Dream, Mamma Mia, The Name of the Game, and My Love, My Life.
Thank you all again for your continued support, I really couldn't do this without all of you in my life!
I will catch up with you all in just a few weeks!! Happy Knitting!!
