My first ever sock design 90% done and a great response to my HUGE discount on Etsy

Hi there, two great news today that I’d like to share with you! First off, my first ever very own sock design is 90% done! I’ve knit both socks and the written pattern + chart is almost done. I just need to take some good pictures and include in the written pattern and then I’ll be ready to send it off to a couple of test knitters. I’ve shared pictures of the design both here and on my other social media and I’ve had an incredibly positive feedback so I’m actually feeling super happy and optimistic about this new pattern of mine. This will be a free pattern that will be released here on the blog end of August beginning of September I hope. Coinciding with the “NEW” shop opening.

I called upon your help a few days ago regarding this pattern because I didn’t have a name for it. I did get a few suggestions here and one on Facebook but I was already in love with the first one. So the suggested names were: Coral Reef, Waterfall, Soft Waves and Can Can. Thank you to all of you who took the time to give this a thought and come up with a suggestion.

And I’ve decided to go with Coral Reef! I just love the name, it flows well and somehow just fits perfectly so a huge thank you to my blog reader Maggienesium who came up with this name:)

I would also like to thank everyone for the success of my huge discount in my Etsy shop now. Like I shared with you in my last post I’m working on a complete “renewal” of my Etsy shop this autumn but to be able to do that I need some help in the form of orders! I need to sell off as much of my current stock as possible to be able to make room for the new stock and I also need some money to buy new base yarns and to launch an independent e-commerce website so that I won’t be so dependent on Etsy anymore. So far I’ve had a great response to the offer. People are buying knitting needles and yarns at -40% off and I’m so excited that this benefits us all: I get more room in my stock space and some much needed funds to carry on and you/the shoppers get a great deal on all the supplies I carry so basically this is a win win situation!

So I hope this coming week will continue to be a success sale wise and if you are part of a knitting/crochet group online or “in the real world” do share the news with your fellow crafters:)

So just in case you didn’t read my latest post, the coupon code to get the 40% off your order ( valid for all orders of 10€ and more) is: RENEWAL

Happy shopping 🙂

ps- here in Normandy it is the perfect online shopping weather today. It’s raining like there’s no tomorrow! Also the perfect weather for some serious tv knitting and I think I may just get started on sock design nr2 🙂

Take care and enjoy your Sunday:)

Happy mail day

Hi there, yesterday was a happy mail day for me! As you know I’ve been going a bit overboard with project bags lately and seeing as I have a collaboration going with Silvia of FridaJo on Etsy I had to buy some more of her bags! So I had been looking at these 2 for a while and last week I just could not wait any longer and today I have them in my hands! And I got a bonus bag! Silvia generously gifted me with a little bag that I think will fit perfectly for sock knitting or maybe hexapuffs.

www.knittinginfrance.com So the bambi and red bags on either sides are those that I had been eyeing for a while and the one in the middle is my gift! And she even added a little owl charm to the tie! So beautiful! And once again, beautiful workmanship and super cute patterns. I’m a big fan. I also know that she is now working on knitting needle cases for her shop and I saw a picture of one for interchangeable needles on Facebook so you should definitely keep an eye out for those.

Also if you haven’t taken advantage of our special offer collaboration yet, remember that this is valid until June 30th. How does it work? You have 2 possibilities:

1) Place an order in my shop and you will get a discount code to use in her shop.  If you buy Fridajo bags for 25 Eur or more you get 10% off and if you buy bags for 35 Eur or more you get 15% off. Isn’t that nice?

2) Make a purchase at FridaJo and you will get a discount code to use in my shop (Knittinginfrance) If you purchase for 20Eur or more you get 10% off and if you purchase for 40Eur or more you get 20% off.

So I hope you will be able to take advantage of one or both of these offers this June and that way you too will have a great happy mail day too:)

That’s all for today. I hope you have a wonderful day and do tune in tomorrow because I have a little game/giveaway planned for you:)
