🌟Frankie🌟 We tried to have a photo shoot today for Frankie’s new namesake colorway but ran into a few difficulties, one being that she’s too dang cute and two - she can’t sit still when we’re both here standing over her! 💕🖤 Frankie is a bright color way to match this girl’s sparkling personality. This Wednesday at 3pm, I’ll be posting a preorder listing for this colorway and I’ll be donating 10% of the sales to the ASPCA 🐱🖤🐶 The preorder will stay open one week and after that I’ll get dyeing!

Mata Hari is a light neutral yellow with a splash of colored speckle. I was inspired by a photograph of Mata Hari in her days as a burlesque performer, wearing a gauzy dress and big jeweled headdress. 💃🏻 Mata Hari will be available next weekend at the SSK market and after on the Junkyarn website! Mata Hari is the first in a new series of transitional summer to fall colors ✨(Seen here on Soirée Single Ply Merino superwash)

These two new colorways will be making their premier at #ssk2018: Jennifer and Mata Hari 💄 The beady-eyed among you may recognize Jennifer (the green skein) from one of the first mini skein sets I put together; you may also know her as #shehulk. I realized the other day that I wanted to revamp this color and bring her back! 💚 Mata Hari is a sandy yellow with bright primary color speckles. It can act as a neutral if you’re into speckles ☺️

I’m getting so excited about my trip to Nashville next Friday (even though I still have a mountain of work to do between now and then)! I purchased my first bathing suit that actually fits my shape just for the trip. So excited high waisted bottoms are in style! 🍍🥝🍋 Can’t wait to see my girls (@xtinawithwolves, @shelli.can and @bornand_raised) and talk yarn nonstop, knit my little fingers off, and meet all of you! #ssk2018 #camprosenashville

🐚Venus🐚 will be making her debut at #ssk2018! The second of my goddess-inspired colors, these colors are directly from Botticelli’s “Birth of Venus”. I know it may be gauche to do a colorway inspired by the artwork that inspired my tattoo, but I’m all about her. Venus was the first female figure in art that looked imperfectly beautiful to me - she has big shoulders and hips and small breasts and gorgeous red hair. I have a languishing art history degree but even my choice to pursue that course of study was influenced by this work of art 💙

I’m a mini-making machine today! Winding up these little chubby skeins and tossing them all in this basket before sorting them for #crownwoolsmkal kits going out to @agoodyarnsarasota and @knothouseyarns and directly to you! 👑💕 Join the MKAL now on @casapinka’s Ravelry page!

Working on something special for #ssk2018! I have several one of a kind colors and new colorways that will be debuting in Nashville so stay tuned! ✨ I’ll also be diving back into the recipes to make some colorways I haven’t dyed in ages and reinvigorate a few as well. Can’t wait to share all of this with you!

Meet our newest family member: Frankie (she says “relax” 😹) - She came to us from a lovely shelter/pet fostering agency and she’s so far completely uninterested in yarn. If you’ve been watching my stories, you’ll know we’re smitten with her 💕 Frankie is a chihuahua-corgi mix with a wonky jaw and palette so her tongue doesn’t stay in her mouth, but that’s part of her charm 👅 You’ll probably see a lot more of her, so I hope that’s ok! [Thanks for the pic @caroline_ruth]

We celebrated last night with friends and tiki drinks at “Porch Bar”, aka our sleeping porch, while fireworks went off nearby. Of course I had to sneak in some knitting too ✨ This #independenceday, I’m thankful to have the ability to be with people I love in the house I own, surrounded by our creature comforts (and our furry creatures), but I know that not everyone is so lucky. My hope is that I will think more about other people going forward, and doing more for my fellow world-dwellers (not just the ones inside our borders) and our humble blue planet. ❤️🌎🏳️‍🌈🇺🇸 Happy Independence Day

Had the rare opportunity today to photograph (and cuddle!) three #kemperwrap samples! 🖤 Two were made by amazing sample knitters and one by @orangeknits herself, but all are 100% #Junkyarn and that thrills me like you wouldn’t believe. I’m always excited to see and hold finished objects in yarn I’ve dyed but this project (featured in the most recent @byhandserial Blue Ridge lookbook) is special. I’ll be shipping out Kemper Wrap kits soon to be delivered before the Aug 1 start of the knitalong! I’ll also have them with me at #ssk2018 and my @blissyarns trunk show! 🧡

The problem with finishing a sweater (for me) is not being able to decide which to make next! There are so many lovely things to choose from the @pompommag and @laine_magazine summer issues! 💕 Check my story for special deal announcements from some amazing makers for the #notalonekal. You might find something for you or someone you love!
