Midweek Check-in, and Design and Dye Madness!!
It has been a crazy few weeks in the Dragon's Den over here in Utah! I have had the awesome experience of learning so much more about yarn dyeing and designing this last week. Inspiration has seemed to come from every direction recently, and I am trying to keep up with it. Fall is definitely my favorite time of the year, and I have been bitten by the Fall fairy! I have recently finished coming up with my new Fall collection, which will mostly be available this coming weekend. I am still waiting to release another colorway in collaboration with Hannah of thecornerofcraft . The update will include colorways: Vintage Fall, Sweater Weather, Farmer's Market, Mulled Wine, and Scarecrow.
In celebration of Fall, I have also made all the Fall colorways into mini sets! All the colorways will be debuting in this mini set this Friday at 10:00 AM MDT, including a sneak release of Pumpkin Everything (in collaboration with Hannah)! Make sure you set the alarms, because I am not sure if I will be able to release these in mini sets until after Vogue Knitting Live in September.
Another exciting new thing for Dragon Hoard Yarn and Dragon Hoard Designs has been the design bug!!! I have recently published two new patterns that are available on Ravelry, combat-socks and riddle-of-the-sphinx socks. I have become so inspired lately, that I already have two or three more sock patterns written up! One thing that has completely stolen my heart recently though, has been my new sweater design.
Find My Way
I am so thrilled that I have been able to figure out how to make something this precious, and cannot wait to share it with the world. The colorway this is knit out of is "Shadowland" and will be returning to the shop in a few weeks. I will plan on having plenty of DK weight yarn in stock for those who wish to knit this pattern. I am planning on having the pattern release be the week of September 20, just in time for VKL.
Last bit of news is about the amazing collaboration that is coming with with Hannah of The Corner of Craft! I am still waiting to receive her contribution in the mail, but I can't wait any longer to show you all. For being subscribers, you get the first official look at the "Pumpkin Everything" Sock collaboration!!
I will show the full kit on my Instagram in the next week, like I said, just waiting on her contribution. I cannot wait to share all these amazing things with you all in the future! Thank you so much for giving me and my yarn/designs a chance, and being so supportive.
Till next time!
