Taste of Shivaya Third Club Selection

Wow, we are into our June selection already!

This month we have some very vibrant superwash sock yarn to feature. We have had some issues with the ways that colors are coming up on monitors, so I want you all to know that these are vibrant bold colors.

We have sunburst, which is a beautiful combination of yellow and oranges that just screams bright, sunny summer day.

Kara was based on the colors that only Springtime can bring; vibrant greens, roses and orange.

Nature is a combo of turquoise, orange and a deep green. We called it nature because it encompasses the colors of the grass, the oceans and sun.




Please try and make your selection by Thursday evening. We will send invoices out on Monday the 18th.

We are so excited for the amazing sock pattern that is on it's way, and for all of you to experience our superwash sock yarn.

As a side note, this blog will be moving to a new hosting in the coming days as we transfer from Blogger to wordpress. I think that you will enjoy the format of the new blog much more.

We will be holding a very large contest for the first three people who complete this month's club selection. As soon as I have the pattern details from Kirsten, I will let you know what needle size to have ready to go.

Please email all selections to heather@shivayanaturals.com

Coming along but slowly

I am doing the shawl version as well. I added two middle panels. I'm not as far along as I'd like to be but I love the yarn and am enjoying the pattern.

Not doing very well

Here is how far I've gotten. Not doing so well. I've ripped it back and restarted 3 times now. This is the most complicated pattern I've done yet. I think I'm getting it down but I find I'm losing track of where I am. Any suggestions?

Knit Along Prize #1

So, I have not been good with getting my pics and thoughts up about this current club project from Anne. Having said that, I LOVE it!! I did decide to do the stole, and it took me a bit to decide how much I wanted widen it by, but I think that it will work with the skein I have.

So, to get the knit along started, we have our first prize to get you going. A skein of choice from our store is up for grabs, all that you have to do is leave a post with a picture of how your scarf/stole is coming along, and we will draw the first winner this coming Saturday.

Let's see those projects!!!

Knit Along

Our knit along beings tomorrow, April 6th both here and on Ravelry. We will have a few wonderful prizes, and I look forward to seeing how everyone's projects turn out. I am casting on for a stole instead of a scarf, so I will try and keep up with everyone :)

Happy Knitting

Taste of Shivaya Second Club Selection

Hi Everyone!

Happy Spring to all of you. Today seems like the perfect day to post our color choices for our second Taste of Shivaya club selection. As many of you know, Anne Hanson has designed a beautiful spring lace scarf for this shipment, and we are really excited to bring three beautiful color choices to all of you.

1. Ocean ~ A stunning turquoise blue that Anne herself to create the pattern
2. Lime: speaks for itself. A great soft lime green color that will certainly enhance any spring outfit
3. Sunset: For those that want a variegated look, we have sunset. A blend of orange and reds, that is kettle dyed to ensure that there is no patterened effect.

Each skein will contain 1000 yards. Anne's pattern only calls for 400 yards, so you will plenty left over to create a second scarf, or an entirely new project.

Please note, we only dye about 4-5 skeins per dye lot, so if you do think that you will want more yarn for another project, please place your order ASAP by emailing us at info@shivayanaturals.com to ensure exact color matches.

All color choices need to be received by this Tuesday, March 24th. We will send out email reminders on Monday morning.

Happy Spring to all of you.
