Ch-ch-ch-CHANGES!

Hey Folks!

madison_knit_in_booth12015 is SUCH an exciting and busy Summer, if it seems that at times The ModeKnit Yarn Team of Annie & Kathleen (& Becca part time!) has been incommunicado, it’s because we’re crazy busy.  And busy is GOOD!

As we grow our company and develop some wholesale accounts, do more fiber shows and just generally get a better handle on WHAT we’re actually doing, we’ll be making changes and improvements (hopefully the changes WILL be improvements!) on our product and on our website!

So stay tuned, we’ll be updating you here on the blog, and also in our newsletter (sign up here!)

Mini Skein Changes

A Few Of Our Current Mini Skein Sets
A Few Of Our Current Mini Skein Sets

We’re changing the put-up of our mini skein sets, and the number of colors included in each set.  The Mini Skein Sets are a labor of love and we really enjoy making them, but the truth is, they are pretty labor intensive.

In order to create a better and more consistent product, we’ll be changing the number of colors in each “No Spoilers” set to SIX, and the skein sizes will be 25g (6 skeins x 25g = 150g set) and 50g (6 skeins x 50g = 300g set)

AND WE WOULD LOVE YOUR HELP!

CONTEST!

Pick Your Favorite No Spoilers Colors Contest!

One set of each colorway will be awarded to at random to a registered survey taker. Pick your favorite six colors from each set!

The contest closes on Saturday, July 18th at 11:59 pm. We’ll announce the winners via email and this blog on Monday July 20th.

CHANGE NUMBER TWO

We’ve added a new yarn, ModeLuxe DK, and boy is it DELICIOUS! ModeLuxe DK is a 4-ply 50% Silk / 50% Superwash Merino DK weight blend. If you’ve been to our last few shows, you’ve had the opportunity to see and feel this amazing yarn.

The times, they are a changin’, and we couldn’t be more excited about it!
