Craftsy Mystery Knit-Along for November

We’ve been hard at work dyeing up Superwash Chunky all summer-long, in preparation for the Craftsy Mystery Knit-Along that I am hosting starting November 1st! Without giving it all away, I just wanted to give you a little sneak peek into what we’ll be making for the knit-along.

The November knit-along project will be for a quick and cosy cowl, knit in one skein of Superwash Chunky, a 100% superwash merino yarn. We chose Terra Firma for a soft, rosy Autumnal colourway. I’ll work with you step-by-step to show you exactly how to knit this cowl. The cowl would be great for last-minute holiday gifts! I knit one with just a few hours of binge-watching the West Wing on Netflix.

And if you have questions, just ask them on the Craftsy platform and either myself or your fellow knitters will help you along. Leave no knitter behind. That’s my mission.

Oh, and for a limited time, Craftsy is offering 43% off the knit-along, so just go sign up here »

    Just receive the yarn for the November KnitAlong. The colour is flat and dull; it doesn’t look anything like the photo above or the colourway shown on the site. What a disappointment. I love Craftsy, but this yarn is too ugly to use.

      Hi Kathy!

      I am so sorry to hear this! We had some skeins shipped to us from the mill that were a slightly different “hand” than we were used to they might have slipped through our shipping process. It sounds like you have received one of these skeins. It is NOT typical of our Superwash Chunky yarn and I don’t want you to be unhappy with this yarn or the KAL. I would be more than happy to send you a new skein for the KAL. Just email me your mailing address and we’ll send a new skein out right away. Or please let me know how we can make this right for you.

      Best,
      Felicia

      Hi Felicia, Like Kathy my yarn arrived last week, and I was rather disappointed with the color, not very vibrant , and looking dull. I have to say I was expecting more from this offer.
      Thanks, Anne-Marie

        Hi Anne-Marie!

        Thank you so much for letting me know about your shipment… We understand that there were a handful of skeins that ended up being shipped that were from the “problem” batch and we are dedicated to replacing these skeins for you. The colour *should* definitely be rosy and vibrant and not dull or spongey. Please give me a call at the studio or email me back with your mailing address and we will replace your skein for you.

        Best,
        Felicia

          Hi Felicia,

    Felicia, I just received my yarn a few days ago and it’s absolutely beautiful. I’m really looking forward to the craftsy project. I just didn’t want any other readers to be discouraged by the previous post. I’ve ordered yarn directly from you in the past and have been most satisfied.

      Thank you so much Cynthia! I am so glad that you like the yarn and I appreciate you letting me know :)

    I just received the replacement yarn and it is brighter and softer than the original skein I received. Thank you Felicia for responding so quickly to my concerns. I’m sure everyone will have a blast with the mystery KnitAlong.

  • Debbie Tripp

    I just found this site. The yarn I received is very dull and sound like the ones described by the other two knitters. I would love to be able to get a replacement thar was more like the pictures and feel if sweet Georgia. Is this still a possibility?

      Hi Debbie,

      Yes, please go ahead and send me your mailing list and we’ll replace your skein right away. I’m so sorry you received one of these “dull” skeins. I really appreciate you letting me know and we’ll get you the yarn ASAP so that you can begin the KAL.

    Unfortunately, my yarn is also dull and not soft at all! May I have a replacement. I do not want to get behind in the KAL; I am really looking forward to it.
    Thank you
