NYSW Sneak Peek: Kits, and a Give Away!

The first Nona kits for NYSW are done and ready to head North!


Six 100-yard skeins of Nona, The Witching Hour gradient with a Pop of Retro


Six 100-yard skeins of Nona, The Witching Hour gradient with a Pop of Hot Pink


Six 100-yard skeins of Nona, “Peacock” gradient


Six 100-yard skeins of Nona, “Autumn in New York” gradient

I have several more in the works and hope to post them before I leave (if I don’t run out of time!).

Somehow, a few of these ended up with an extra skein in the mix, and I find myself with 6 miscellaneous skeins. I’ve put them together into two mini-sets of 300 yards each, and I’m giving them away!


Mini “Peacock” set, 300 yards of Nona


mini “Autumn in New York” set, 300 yards of Nona

There are loads of fun little projects to make with 150-300 yards of lace weight yarn (and Nona is a heavy lace weight, merino / cashmere / silk blend) on Ravelry.

So, leave a comment telling me which set you’d love to have, and I’ll randomly choose a winner for each on Tuesday, October 4, 2016!

    Thanks, now you’ve made me homesick! (I’m originally from the Hudson Valley. Chicago just doesn’t have the autumn colors, and I miss them). All your gradient sets are lovely, but a hint of Autumn in NY would be wonderful ๐Ÿ˜€

    It’s hard to choose. I’ll go for the peacock set as winter is coming and I want to line up my winter knitting project up. I think this set and some white would be a great winter project….hopefully for myself.

    Hi Jennifer, I came across Laura Nelkin’s “Texo Cuff” pattern and I would love to knit and bead some for gifts for a few of my 11(!) granddaughters. The Mini Peacock set would be perfect! I love your new gradient kits!, by the way…
