New Colorway: There’s Bird Poop on my Swingset!

April 28, 2017 ::: Feature, Products

Yes, that says “poop”. Do you remember being younger and heading out to play on your favorite swing? Only to find that some bird had turned it into his/her own personal toilet?! Now plagued with an extreme, world-ending level of frustration, you scream in the direction of your parental units, “There’s bird poop on my swingset!”. As if though they have a magic wand on their person that will make this atrocity disappear at this very moment.

Exhibit A: Bird PoopNow that I’m a parent, I hear this quite often. And when I went outside to take this beautiful product shot today, what did I see?!

(See Exhibit A to the right.)

Yes, that’s right. That’s bird poop on the swingset. This is a classic tale of life imitating art, imitating life.

This new colorway will be available to pre-order on May 5 @ 10am CST. It may also be appearing in a special mini skein bundle. Stay tuned…

NEW Colorway: Mars

March 14, 2017 ::: Feature, Products

It just feels right to announce this NEW colorway on Pi Day. So, in honor of this fantastic day where we celebrate math and science, I give you, MarsIf you’re part of this year’s RANDOMINI Mini Skein Club, it might look a little familiar to you. (This colorway was first introduced in last month’s shipment.)

How did Mars come to be? Well, 4.5 billion years ago, a solar nebula…oh, wait, you wanted to know just about the yarn, right? This beautiful combo of colors was actually first created completely by accident. It was a Skeinny Dunker gone, “Oh, so right!”, so I set it aside and let it season until it told me what it wanted to be.

This new colorway will be available for PRE-ORDER starting this Friday, March 17 @ 9am CST. It will be available until 8pm CST on March 19, or until all inventory is sold out.
