Boxing Day Etsy Update - Preview the yarns!

Here they are! All of the yarns that will be featured in the huge Etsy Update happening on December 26th at 12:30pm EST. Some of these collages seem to be showing up a bit foggy... I spent all morning working on them, so forgive me for just leaving them as is, the yarn shots will be crystal clear on the Etsy site! 

This time we've repeated several fan favourites (Tartan, Canyon, Stained Glass) and have also made an effort to represent lots of my personal favourite colourways in several different bases, so hopefully if you spot a colourway that you can't live without, chances are you'll be able to nab a skein in one weight or another. We have quite a few of each of these colourways, so fingers crossed that there won't be too much chaos at checkout. But, just in case, here are a few tips for you:

1) Be sure that you've set up your Etsy account/Paypal account ahead of time, be logged in, have the right shipping address and credit card info entered so adding items to your cart and checking out will be as quick as possible. 

2) Don't worry about placing multiple orders, I am happy to combine shipping. If you see a skein or two that you know you want, just buy them! Then you can peruse the site at your leisure and if after a bit of browsing you've found a few more things that you'd like feel free to place a separate order. Upon processing the orders I always check to see if multiple orders were placed and will issue a refund for the overcharge in shipping. However, BONUS! For this update I'll be charging a flat $1 shipping per skein, so no matter how many orders you place, you won't be overcharged. 

3) Remember that cart jacking is bound to happen and try to keep a sense of humour about it! There will be more Etsy updates in the future and you'll have plenty more chances to grab One Of A Kinds. I'm trying to make little changes to my system in order to keep frustrations and disappointments to a minimum, but to be honest, at this point I'd rather cart jacking then overselling! At least with the Etsy format we can be certain that if paypal takes your money, the yarn is yours! 

Enjoy this little preview, and please feel free to let me know which are your favourites so I can start making notes about what we should be working towards next!

  9. Beautiful yarn as always. Glad that I will be off of school so should be able to be on Etsy when it opens and be able to get a skein. Going to try to limit myself to just one, which will be hard to do.

  14. What projects are people planning on using their OOAK skeins for? I'd like to get a hank or two but I'm not sure how to plan to use it.

  15. Frosted Petal and Cranberry Ice are stunning! Please consider in heavier weights for future updates. This time around, Tartan and Stained Glass are my goals :) Thanks for brightening the holidays!

  16. I have missed this update as it is 1.30am my local time and I didn't managed to wake up for this after all the festivities. Will you consider tartan in your permanent collection? It is gorgeous and this is the second time I am missing it (cart-jacked the first time!).
