Holy Crap, THAT was a Year!

Please note, we are still closed until January 16, 2012. All orders, emails and comments will be attended to after that date!

2011 was the year that:

We almost doubled our original membership in the Smart-Ass Knitters/World Domination Club, with members in Canada, US, Scotland, France, New Zealand, Dubai, Australia, Greece and Israel.

I quit my day job and became, in the words of Stephanie, “fully yarned”.  I thought life would slow down a little.  It didn’t.

We applied to be a vendor at Sock Summit, and proceeded to dye all. the. yarn. We learned how to ship huge amounts of yarn across the border with the help of Buffy the Shipping Slayer.  And now we have a NAFTA performance art piece that we think nicely sums up what you need to know before doing the paperwork.

And then we WENT to Sock Summit and had our minds blown just a little bit:

Sock Summit Day 1Sock Summit Day 1After.Minion cousins!!!

We donated Otis Houndation funds to: Knitters Without Borders, The Art Hive, Food for Kids, Artists in the Schools, Winter Folk Camp and a few individual artists who needed a little help. (We’ve also put aside funds for our local food bank and other local charities to give them in February when donations are scarce)  If you’ve ever bought yarn from us or asked for your yarn to be wound, you’re part of those contributions and our effort to give back.  Thank you.

(We’ve noticed lately that when it comes time for Ron to wind yarn for the “Otis Houndation”, Mr. Wheaton himself staggers downstairs from his lair and plants himself firmly at Ron’s feet to supervise. Because he knows you’re worried about quality control.)

I had my first “fangirl” in the wild moment at Squam.  (Thanks Rosie!  Yep…still a little freaked out, but in the good way)

We were featured in Vogue Knitting’s Holiday edition (Made in Canada column).  Thanks Lee Ann!

Our yarn was used for designs for the first time in a book (Fresh Designs: Scarves) and a print magazine (Needle Pulling Thread – Festive 2011…Green scarf…page 40).

We were also reviewed and had our yarn used for a pattern in Knit Circus.

We held the Indigodragonfly Summer Knitalong of Doom. That clearly has shown no signs of stopping, as the Hat-along, Cowl-along, Wrap-along, Hand-along and the ongoing Fall-Winter KAL of Doom continue.  (join us. join us. join us.)

We visited Shall We Knit (where we camped out for a few days and learned the time honoured tradition of “licking the yarn” to claim it as yours. Do not do this in front of Anne Hanson…it’s just embarrassing for everyone.)

We worked with amazing designers, like:

Heather
Phillip and Mr. Grumm

Natalie

Glenna

Kim FINALLY published another pattern, Cliffs of Insanity:

Cliffs of Insanity scarf

(with classes coming soon, possibly to a LYS near you!)

The second annual Highlands Fibre Fling grew exponentially, from 8 in our first year to this:

knitters

(I lost count after 50)

We are incredibly touched that people travelled from Toronto, Ottawa, Peterborough and North Bay to come and spend the day with us. Flush with success, we’re planning a whole weekend of activities around the Fling for next Summer (August 18), so contact us for travel/accomodation information if you’re interested in coming in 2012.

And of course, Giftapalooza, one of the most fun ideas we’ve ever had.

This photo sums up how we feel right now:

Strung out on the sugar

2011. An incredible year. Thank you all for being part of it.

And hold on, cause 2012 is shaping up to be even better!

Merry Holiday Giftapalooza!

(if you’re still waiting for your Giftapalooza package or haven’t opened it yet and don’t want spoilers, STOP READING HERE.  I mean it.  There will be pictures and everything.  

Also, say it with me:  “Fucking Customs!”)

Ron had this brilliant idea back in July, you know, EXACTLY when we were surrounded by racks of drying yarn and the huge boxes they needed to be packed in for Sock Summit.  Really?  Why do the great ideas always come at the busiest times?  All our plans for next summer have been made in the past 3 CRAZY weeks…

But I DIGRESS! What follows is long, but also the most funny you can have with your jammies on, so pour a cup of your favourite hot beverage and settle in.

Holiday Giftapalooza.  A “Club” package, with no long-term commitment. And send it to someone else, so it’s a gift and the one you get back is a gift to you. A yarny Secret Santa.

There, of course, had to be extra stuff, so we did our best to make it affordable and fun.

Everyone got a tape measure:

And some of you got a tote bag:

(artwork by Darby Bayly)

And some of you got one of these colour name magnets:

and one of these “note” magnets:

(based on notes like these that I’ve been known to write on behalf of knitters, from time to time…)

Everyone got a copy of this pattern:

Preposterous by Natalie Selles (so named, says Natalie, because “these mitts kind of are insane!”) We think they’re brilliant and beautiful and that with this photograph proves that Natalie is indeed the most adorable of all designers. And we love her and her work, but really think she’s outdone herself this time.

(which reminds me…I need to go and cast on mine right now!)

Oh wait.  You probably want to hear about the yarn.

MCS Sock: 75% merino/15% cashmere/10% silk in fingering weight yumminess, never before seen at Indigodragonfly. (We’ll be releasing this as a regular base in February 2012)

For Giftapalooza, we dyed one-of-a-kind, non-repeatable colourways. My favourite way to dye! If you got one of these, you’re only 1 of a few in existence who will every have YOUR colour. Ever. It’s my favourite way to dye.

Here’s a peek at all of them:

  

It’s Not Polite to Poinsetta; Mistletoe: Aphrodesiac or Garnish?

I Think The Turkey Is Done; Laugh It Up, Snowball!; One! One Partridge in Pear Tree Ah-ah-ah-ah!

It’s a Wonderful Twilife: Jimmy Stewart vs. The Werewolves;  Say Hello to My Leetle Elf; I Thought the Email Said ‘Present Enlarger’

Poor Little Reindeer – Probably Kept Up With You for a Mile or So; I Suggest You Check Your List Again or Do You Really Want To Sleep With the Fishes On This Most Holiest of Nights?; For the Last Time Charlie Brown Will You Please Water That Tree?

What Happens in Whoville Stays in Whoville;  Merlot: The Coping Mechanism of Champions; Failed Holiday Marketing Campaign 5A – Butterball Frozen Canary

Driving Under the Influence of Muppets; Stuffing: Nature’s Cruel Joke on Bread; Cranberry the Evidence

And last, but really and truly not least, we gave each Giftapalooza participant the opportunity to send a little something extra in their Giftee’s package.  Any thing we could print out on paper (or photo paper…or sticker paper, because, um, we may have some of that lying around…)

Here’s what that pile looked like:

It’s at this point that I lost it.

See, I love the holidays.  I love presents…most of all giving them. So Giftapalooza let me (us…but I think I might love it just a touch more) play Santa Claus.  And to see this pile of pages made me tear up. So many of you were so generous with your time and your secret family recipes and, well, your utter and complete nuttiness (there is some FUNNY stuff in that pile)… and you did it for COMPLETE STRANGERS!

(And trust me, the more you protested your wit and your creativity, the wittier and more creative you were)

Seriously, I thought this holiday season was going to suck (my mother’s in the hospital, so that’s where we’re spending today) and you all COMPLETELY turned it around for me.  So truly, thank you for the best present ever.

And now, a little performance art piece entitled How Giftapalooza Gets There:

 

 

Merry Christmas and Happy Sunday!

All is Calm; or, What Happens to the Squirrels When They See Your Tree…

Putting up a Christmas tree is one of my favourite holiday traditions.  When I was little, we used to drive FOREVER (or, you know, from North York to Markham, which in reality is less than 15 minutes) to a tree farm to cut our own tree.

As an adult living alone, I got out of the habit. And I missed it.  The smell is one of my favourite things in the world, and I swear the room with the tree in it is the warmest in the house.

When Ron and I moved in together, I made noises about a tree and he made noises about not having a tree. And then one day he arrived home from work, walked in the door, got a call on his phone and walked out again. Ron is not unknown for his quirky behaviour, so I went back to whatever I was doing until he popped in the door with a tree.

This is our sixth Christmas together, and really the first one where I’m fully realizing we have traditions.  Our own traditions.

Now we go out into our “backyard” to get our tree.

DSC_0009

And even though we get what we THINK is a “shorter” tree, it ends up being too tall to fit into any photo. But hey, we have a two storey ceiling in our living room…why not use it?

We have the traditional ornaments that we both brought into the relationship:

And new additions this year:

Then look up. Look wayyyyyy up…
DSC_0025

Yes. That’s right. Our tree is topped (or as close as we could get to the top…the ladder wouldn’t reach) with a very familiar unicorn head.

Happy Holidays to you and yours from all of us at Indigodragonfly.

A Tale Of Two Designers

Once upon a time, two designers picked yarn out of the back of my car in a back alley in Toronto and designed pretty stuff with it.  The end.

OK, so only one of them picked the yarn out of my trunk, and it was in Kensington Market, but still, she designed this:

©leeleetea

Grand Central, by Natalie Selles, knit with 2 super squooshy skeins of MCN Worsted

And the other told us about a Knitalong she was planning for this shawl:

IMG_8357

©knit and knag/Anna Dalvi

La Toupie by Anna Dalvi, a doubleknit triangular shawl knit with 2 contrasting colours of Merino Silk 4 ply Sock. 2 skeins (1 of each colour) will make the shawl pictured here. Please order 2 of each colour if you wish a larger shawl.

And look! We just happen to have some of both yarns here, fresh from the dyepot:

For Grand Central:

Kit, with hard copy of the pattern & 2 skeins of MCN Worsted: $61

Fun Thing #38: Smart-Ass Knitters Club Single Gift Memberships; also, Holiday Hours Of Operation

Holiday Hours Of Operation:

Wednesday December 21 is our last day of regular operation for 2011. We will be closed from Thursday December 22 to Friday January 13, 2012, re-opening the order desk on Saturday January 14 and the Dye Studio on Monday January 16. We will still be available to process emailed Gift Certificates intended as Christmas gifts until 12 noon EST on Saturday December 24, as we can still do these in our polar bear jammies as long as we have a computer and The Internets. Also, we will take care of yarn orders on a limited basis for the just-released La Toupie triangular double-knit shawl by Anna Dalvi: http://www.knitandknag.com/2011/12/la-toupie-doubleknitting-kal/ 

It’s time for a break…and a KitKat just ain’t gonna cut it!

_________________________________________________________________________

Okay, now on to the next Item O’ Business!!!

_________________________________________________________________________

We offer Gift Certificates. $10, $50, $300, whatever works.

A few days ago, we got to thinking, what would be more fun than a straightforward dollar amount??

The Answer: Smart-Ass Club Single Memberships!!!

Okay, here’s how it works: 

Step 1: Find a Deserving Giftee.

Step 2: Find out where said Giftee lives.

Step 3: Push the appropriate sales link.

Step 4: Pat yourself on the back for a Good Deed well done!

Now, one of the fun parts of this idea is that the Giftee gets to choose which date of the Smart-Ass Knitters Club they can use their Certificate for, as long as the date is sent to us by a given date. It’s also fun in that the Giftee has no idea what the club shipment is going to be, and if the Giftee is not one of our regular customers, it’s a fun introduction to the Woolly World that is Indigodragonfly. Financially, it’s also a viable option for someone who’s interested in the Club but might not be necessarily able to afford the long-term commitment. And finally, we can accommodate most fibre allergies if the Smart-Ass Knitters Nut-Free option is requested.

Okay, Dates in Question. Here’s the Shipping Dates for the Smart-Ass Knitters Club for 2012:

February 15, 2012  (Redemption Deadline: January 15, 2012)

April 15, 2012  (Redemption Deadline: March 15, 2012)

June 15, 2012  (Redemption Deadline: May 15, 2012)

August 15, 2012  (Redemption Deadline: July 15, 2012)

October 15, 2012  (Redemption Deadline: September 15, 2012)

December 15, 2012  (Redemption Deadline: November 15, 2012)

Okay, so the Giftee has their Certificate. Good! What they need to do to use it is to email us and give us at least one month advance notice for the month they want to use it, so we know for sure how many club skeins and pieces of club swag to order. For instance, if the Giftee wants to redeem their Certificate to use for the February 15 club shipment, they need to inform us by January 15. On the flipside, say they want to use the Certificate for the December 15 shipment, they can let us know any time between the date they get the Certificate right up until November 15.

Makes Sense?

Price!  The price of the Club is $50.  Appropriate taxes (Canadian certificates only; HST or GST, depending on your province) and shipping costs will be added at checkout

Okay, so here’s the Sales Links!  :

Ontario

Canada

United States

International

As you’re paying, please let us know who the recipient of the Gift Certificate is (even if it’s for yourself!) and if there are any allergy issues in the “Note to Seller” (that’d be us!) section. We will email the Certificate to you within 24 – 48 hours of payment. If you want to buy a certificate for someone NOT in your region/country, choose the button for where the Giftee lives, not where you live!

Smart-Ass Knitters Club Single Gift Memberships – Way cooler than a Lottery Ticket!!!


Aboot Shipping To The U.S.A., Eh!

Hiya,

If you’re looking to send something from here in the Great White North to the U.S. to have a good shot at arriving for Christmas, all orders must be in and paid for by this Sunday evening – December 11 – at 8 p.m. Eastern Standard Time. I’ll be making a Post Office run on the morning of Monday December 12; we’ll still be taking orders after that, but then delivery dates become kinda up in the air, and are subject to such fun things as mail volumes, inclement weather, cranky elves etc.

Orders can be sent to: orders@indigodragonfly.ca

So, like, there it is, eh!
