New In the Shop This Week

I have a couple new sections up in the Tiny Dino Studios etsy shop this week.

Along with feeling the pull toward lace weight myself, I jumped in and bought a bunch of it to sell!

I am listing two skeins in each color way, which is more than enough to make a sweater. My new lace line is called Oviraptor, after the small, but sharp little carnivore. It is 100% superwash merino wool, and you can feel the strength of this seemingly delicate 2-ply when you hold a skein in your hand. There are 875 yards or yarn per 100g skein! At $24 each, that’s one sweater for less than $50, which is less that I usually pay for a ready made one at the store that doesn’t quite fit properly.

Second, I have new worsted weight yarns, or as we call them, Pteranodon yarns, for winter. I have been thinking for awhile that I would like to do larger lots of my worsted weight yarn so projects other than a hat or a pair of gloves would be possible. I would like folks to be able to make sweaters, vests, and really big cushy scarves or shawls if they like.

My first two colorways are in my favorite of my new winter color stories:

5 skeins (1090 yards) of Sugar Plum

4 Skeins (872 yards) of SemiSolid Teal

Pteranodon yarn is available for $16 a skein, which makes it very affordable. Plus, you get the unique character of building a garment out of hand dyed yarn.

Now all I need are patterns to go alone with it all. Which, believe it or not, I am working on.
