Come check out the A Chick That Knitz Etsy shop.  We are having a 20% off sale this week.

How are y’all doing?  I can feel Fall in the air!  It’s still 90 degree weather here, but the days are shorter.  There is a crispness in the air in the morning that is reminiscent of Fall.   I LOVE Fall!

Lauren and Luke came over yesterday and we played in a basket of  Hexipuffs.

We had so much fun!  These hexipuffs are for The Beekeeper’s Quilt by Tiny Owl Knits.

You need over 300+ hexipuffs to make the quilt!   I made these years ago and never assembled them.   Now that I dye my own yarn, I want a new one with my own yarn colors in it.

Enjoy your day today!  Don’t forget to check out the sale online.  It goes thru the weekend.  Etsy Shop – A Chick That Knitz

Happy Knitting Friends,

Hello Friends!

I hope this reaches you well and happy!  I’ve got some fun things to share with you today.IMG_9307.jpeg

This is the Paradigm Tunisian Scarf by Megan Cullison.  She made it in my color-way “We’re Going to Need a Bigger Boat”   This color-way was made to celebrate Discovery Channel’s “Shark Week”.

I’m also wearing a shawl cuff, it’s the red leather wrap holding it all together.  Teresa, from Two Unravelled Chicks and a Llama has a beautiful assortment of these.  You can purchase them online at her shop.

This adorable kitty was shared with me at my Etsy store.  It’s made in our color-way “Gold Rush”. I am just amazed at what cute things people make.  I am actually taking a class starting next week to learn how to do this.   I will be making a Llama.

I am also so pleased with my Mount Pleasant top.

Gugga and Luke

Crop tops are all the rage right now to wear with high waisted jeans.  I do not wear the high waisted jeans.  I have a belly.  I like to wear empire waste type tops to cover my belly.  Wearing a flowing type top under the Mount Pleasant looks great.  It allows me  to wear these super cut tops.  I made this with our “Dijon Mustard” color-way.

Happy Sunday everybody!

Enjoy some knitting/crochet/weaving today!

Hugs,

Tammy

 

 

Shawl and Tell

Hi Friends!  I hope you are all doing well.  I’ve finished my first Test Knit ever!  This is the Dovah Shawl by Kelly McClure of Boho Knits. Isn’t it beautiful?!  I am in love!  Thank you Kelly for such a lovely pattern!

I’ve used my color-way “Bark” and “PrimRose” on Singles Fingering Yarn.

IMG_9162.jpeg

Imagine the color combinations!  I’m going to be putting some kits together for various options for this shawl.

IMG_9142.jpeg

Wouldn’t this be gorgeous !  Kelly has published the pattern with a 3 color option.  This would be stunning.  This is the “Nightingale Kit” listed in the shop.

My friend Catalina made this cute shawl.

IMG_9090.jpeg

It’s the perfect size for a Spring or Fall scarf.  I live in jeans.  I see all of my fashion through that lens.  I like to wear sundresses too.  I like to wear a little light weight cardigan with sun dresses more so than shawls.  I like to wear my shawls with jeans.

Lake of Shining Waters Shawl

Catalina made this out of our “Nebula” color-way.  I see this with a white t-shirt/blouse and jeans.  Pretty.

We are having a trunk show at David’s Yarn this Saturday, August 31, 2019 from 11:00 to until 7:00.  Come out and say “Hi”.  We’ve got some new Fall colors to debut.  New colors and the softest bulky yarns ever!

I’ve got skeins to label.  I wish you all the best and hope to see some of you on Saturday.

Happy Knitting.

Here is a link to our YouTube channel.  Watch to see Lauren’s Swoncho!  It’s divine!

Test Knit/Sale

IMG_8649.jpeg

I feel like such a braggadocious yarn person!  I will admit it! Yes.  I am.  I love yarn!  Join me all yarn lovers!  Love all the yarn with me!  I’m working on a test knit for Kelly McClure of Boho Knits.  It’s called the Dovah Shawl.  I need to get it done by August 22.  It’s so pretty, I just had to share it.     Get ready, she will release it by the end of August.  I have all kinds of kits and color-ways to make it with.   I’m working with “Bark” and “Primrose”.

I also love a good sale.  I’m the type of person that will wait to purchase something until a sale is on.  So, of course, I’m going to apply that to all my beautiful co-yarn lovers.  I’ve got a 20% off sale going on in the Etsy Store.   Check out some of our new color-ways.

This is “Midnight Canyon” on worsted!  Grant is a Jazz musician and teaches at UCO here in Edmond, OK.  He plays Jazz at various locations around town.  He is cool!  He has that soft cool jazz voice.  I like to listen to him talk.  He came over and made “Midnight Canyon”.  I took it to a local yarn store trunk show and it sold out as quick as I got it out of the box.   Grant is off playing Jazz, so I had to make it myself.  This is my version of Grant’s original color-way.  I love the manly energy of this yarn.

IMG_8753.jpeg

This is Lauren’s yarn baby.  She made a teal version called “Starling” that is one of our best sellers.  It’s gorgeous!  We had a request to make it a little more blue than teal.  This is it!  Introducing “Robin’s Egg”.  It is sooooo pretty!  We have it available in sparkle and it’s breathtakingly beautiful!  Seriously!     20% off this week!

IMG_8749.jpeg

Lavender Fields.  Do I need to say more?  This is a top seller too.  Here it is in all her glory on Fingering Singles.  Readily available to ship to you immediately.  It’s gorgeous and on sale!

Get out of the heat and let’s shop for some pretty art yarn!  Back to school sale!

A Chick That Knitz

Also friends, the little chick you see in the pictures represents me, A Chick That Knitz.  I had another one that represented Lauren and it fell and broke into pieces.  If anyone finds a cute chick, let me know, and I will buy it!  I am on the hunt.

Stay cool friends.  Enjoy indoors and air conditioning and YARN!

Tammy.

Hello Friends!  How are you guys today?   I’ve started a test knit for this lovely shawl from Kelly McClure of Boho Knits.   Look at the color-way I created for this stunning shawl.

IMG_8308.jpeg

Isn’t it gorgeous!  This is “Bark” “Primrose” and “Love’s Yellow Rose”.  I splurged and bought myself a set of Signature circular knitting needles.  They are the best of the best.

I also created some mini’s on sparkle and sock…

and……

Here it is with “Marvelous Mauve” instead of “Love’s Yellow Rose”.

I have 2 1/2 weeks to finish the test shawl and I’m casting on today.  I am eager to see it done!   I will be back with show and tell!

Happy Saturday!

Yarn makes me happy!  I hope it lights your fire too!
