Summer really sucks wind for shop productivity, but even doubly so when you’re preparing for a book to come out. Now that it’s on the shelves I can get back to the sewing machine and start cranking stuff out again. Feels good!

First off the press are these new Biggie Box Bags. They’re almost three times as big as my usual box bag size and I’m loving them. They’re HUGE. You can fit a whole bag of Rowan Felted Tweed in with no problem. (I may have augmented the stash this …

secret sekrits are secret no more

You know how it seems like it’s been FOREVER since I posted about knitting? I mean, really really posted about knitting? Not just a swatch or a stash enhancement? Truth is, I’ve been knitting. A tonne. And I’ve been working with designers. And patterns. And tech editors. And the inimitable Stitchy McYarnpants.
Behold, Knitting it Old School!
It’s up for pre-order on Amazon now, so we can finally let the cat outta the bag. Lookit! Lookit!

Stitchy and I made a book! And it’s GORGEOUS.
I’ll end up gushing about it a lot over the …

Or is it stashed down?

At any rate, Stashdown 2010 was very very successful. Almost the entire stash of shop fabrics has been cut into pieces.

thursday shop update

I’ve scheduled a shop update for this Thursday, April 8th at 11:00 AM Eastern. This update will be entirely camera straps. So many camera straps that your eyes will bleed! Ok, no, not really, but I’ll have upwards of 50 straps finished by then and I’m listing them all.
Add it to your calendar:

I’ll have the new Orla straps,

that Houndstooth I can’t stop loving,

and the last of the Cheep! Cheeps!

There will also be the very last of the blue mods and a few new ones listed to wet your whistle.

boxbags o’ plenty

I love the weeks following a major fabric cutting frenzy. It seems like all I have to do is watch a couple episodes of something on Hulu and *poof, * I have a million things to put in the shop.

Well, maybe not a million, but there’s a whole heap of boxbags going up today at 1pm Eastern. If all goes well for the rest of the week, there should be a whack more listed on Friday.

I’m completely in love with this pink houndstooth. I should have some camera …

stash down

When things get quiet around here, it usually means I’m busy sewing for the shop. I’ll pop a DVD in the computer and without the distraction of flickr or twitter, I can get a tonne of fabric cut. A week of that means I’m not around online much, but I can get so much done you’d think I have a sweatshop team doing it all for me. True to form, I’ve been slowly repopulating the shop with boxbags and camera straps.

There’s some new colours and fabrics coming, including some that …

make mine matchy matchy

Things are back in swing in the Splityarn shop studio (ok, the basement) now that the new year is also in full swing. I’m diligently cutting and fusing the last of my remaining fabrics before allowing myself to pick out any new colours for Spring. The next couple months will have plenty of Scooters and Orla to go around, I assure you.

New for this year I’ve added custom listings for boxbags and camera straps. If you’ve got a chunk of fabric hanging around in your stash waiting to be turned …

back to the sewing machine

New boxbags are now up in the splityarn shop!

The Orla Kiely Abacus Flowers sold out in four (!!) minutes, but there are still heaps of others to go choose from. I’m going to try and whip up a few more of the Orlas this week, but I’m going to be sneaky about it and add them to the shop at random times. Keep your eye on the shop RSS feed if you’re not following me on Twitter to catch one.
