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!

  1. 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 πŸ˜€

    • Sorry to make you homesick :-). Yeah, nothing beats Autumn in New England (not even Virginia, and we have quite a pretty Autumn here, too).


  2. 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.

  3. Both are beautiful but if I had to pick just one I would go with the Autumn. I am looking forward to seeing you in Rhinebeck.

  4. Ooh! The Peacock set is a collection of all my favorite colors! I really do need to get started on my STF hat for Rhinebeck! If I use up more of my stash, the more I can buy! πŸ˜‰


  5. All of the sets are gorgeous! Will they be available online after Rhinebeck? I’d love to win either of the mini’s you’re giving away.

    • Thank you for being interested in taking it off my hands πŸ˜€ (dribs and drabs of yarn lying around make me a little crazy haha)


    • That’s what I was going for. I love the NYSW; it’s the perfect time of year for a festival, and sweaters, and wool, and nostalgia πŸ˜€


  6. I love the saturated colors of peacock! There are so many possibilities! Looking forward to seeing you in a couple weeks!

  7. I love the Mini Peacock- the blues and purples are my colors!
    I have been enjoying learning about the inspirations for your colors. Your posts are one of the highlights of my week- a chance to get away from the grind of work and dream…..

    • Aw, thank you so much! I really appreciate that (and it helps hearing from you; sometimes I feel like I’m writing in a vacuum πŸ™‚ ).


  8. There is something about the blues that are calling me. So, for me, it’s the Peacock. But I must say, you do beautiful work. πŸ™‚

  10. This is a tough choice! I think I would go with the Peacock, but that Autumn in NY is stunning! The leaves are starting to change up here and it is breathtaking!

  14. 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…
