I hope your summer is going well. Scott and I just got back from vacation in Bennett Springs, MO. It was steamy, hot, and humid, but the spring was beautiful and we treasured spending time with our nieces and nephews.
But if vacation is over, then that must mean it is almost August and that means new Colors of the Month listings. For August, we have a few familiar old favorites that have been redesigned as Fades. But before you click over to Etsy to begin shopping, keep reading to the end of the email. There is a free shipping offer until August 7 on orders over $35 but only through my newly re-opened website.

Dyeabolical Fade sets are previously variegated colorways that have been deconstructed in to their component parts and dyed as coordinating sets that mimic the look of the original colorway. Each set is designed to shift the color in a harmonious, gradient-like manner while still having enough distinct color variation to be used easily in striping projects.
Each fade set this month is offered on the Lovely Sock base as mini size or full size skeins, full size Merino DK sets, and full size Merino Worsted sets. If you would like a Fade dyed on a different base yarn, just ask. I will always do what I can to fulfill your request.
Orders for the August Fades close August 7.
Now about that free shipping...
The Shopify shop on my website was closed temporarily while I was down for the count this last fall and winter, but it is now reopen and ready to take orders. To celebrate, I am offering free U.S. shipping on orders over $35 from now until August 7. This offer is only good on my website. It does not apply to Etsy orders.
My Etsy shop will remain open for now, but please be aware that the prices on Etsy may be higher than those on my website and the selection may be more limited. You will always get a better selection and better value shopping directly from my website.
Yes, but can we talk about Halloween?
Yes, lets! The next few weeks are all about doing colorway development for a few new Halloween sock yarns. If you have any special requests for Halloween colorways or themes then just ask. I am always open to suggestions.
And for you St. Louis sports fans...
Play Ball and Gloria Fades are now available on a semi-permanent basis. Each set comes with 5 colors, with an optional 6th skein of Naked (undyed ecru).
If you are in the St. Louis Metro area, then don't forget that Summers Last Blast Yarn Crawl starts this Friday. Make Knitorious one of your stops this weekend to buy Dyeabolical Fades in person.
