Happy Fall y’all! I hope you are enjoying the cooler weather! It’s knitting time! The kids go back to school, the cold weather is right around the corner and it’s my favorite time of year!
I have a friend named Kara and she is the crochet teacher at our local yarn store. She is opening an online shop to sell her crochet projects. Here are her kiddos modeling her super cute hats. Sage made a darling present for my dog Brodie.
Isn’t that cute?! Brodie is so handsome! She made him a dog collar charm.
This is Lauren. She is a fan of A Chick That Knitz yarn. She made this lovely shawl with our color-way “Golden Rosebud”. She tells me that she wears this in the office and her coworkers all want one too. I LOVE that this is crochet.
This is April Garwood of Banana Moon Studio. She is a local designer and loves ACTK yarn. Check out her website for some cute gifts for friends and family. This is ACTK color-way “Daydream”.
To celebrate Fall and apple season, here is a yummy apple salad recipe that everyone loves! Enjoy!
Happy Fall and Happy Knitting

Here’s the newest YouTube video. I’m chit chatting and showing off some new yarn colors. Luke has a surprise visit at the end.
Happy Knitting Friends,
Hello. I just had to show off my new favorite hand dyed yarn! It’s called “Boho Beauty“. It is shown here in MCN Fingering weight yarn. It’s also readily available in Bulky!
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,
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.
Imagine the color combinations! I’m going to be putting some kits together for various options for this shawl.
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.
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.
Here is a link to our YouTube channel. Watch to see Lauren’s Swoncho! It’s divine!
(and these were the good expressions YouTube picked for us – lol )
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.
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!
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!
