Happy Summer, Knitters!
I hope you’re all having a delightful summer so far. But, it’s time to start thinking ahead to get some wonderful fall knitting off to a great start at a very low price. I’ve been busy this week posting some sweet bargains on eBay for lovely, but older, Dale books, plus some custom-colored kits for some of my designs.
Here’s the kit idea: You get my $5 to $8 pattern for free, and you get great yarns for my designs on sale, while I get to move out discontinued colors to make room for more glorious, new fall yarns. I’ll be adding kits to the sale gradually, but if you’re thinking of doing one of my designs using at least 50% discontinued colors, now is the time – let me know and you’ll get my (personal-use) normally $5 to $8 pattern for free!
Here’s an example of one of the first kit sales that I’ve added to my summer clearance sale on eBay; I can’t wait to see my popular North Star Hat in those lovely purples!:
I have other colorways for the North Star Hat already posted, with more to come, too. Here’s my list of eBay summer clearance sale items:
Be sure to bookmark that eBay page! I’ll be adding more great sale items to it all summer long. Have a wonderful summer!
P. S. – I just took the above photo yesterday, but that’s the same, old North Star Hat prototype I knit years ago. I’ve worn it and washed it more times than I can count, yet it still looks (and feels) like new! The aran-weight Dale Hegre I used for it is really phenomenal yarn. I LOVE it! I don’t understand why Dale Garn hasn’t done more with it here in the US. I guess the fact that Dale tends to focus more on the sport/DK & fingering/baby ranges has something to do with it. But let me tell you – if you like an extra-soft, but still very durable and warm, aran-weight 100% wool at a very reasonable price, here’s your ticket!
