Spring Semi-Annual Sale

I'm excited to announce the dates for the spring edition of the Semi-Annual Sale.  This time around the Yellow House Knits Semi-Annual Sale will run from April 15 to April 28.  The Semi-Annual Sale is your chance to get gorgeous handknit baby sweaters at a significantly reduced cost.  Believe it or not, now is the best time to order sweaters for the fall. 

All sweaters will be 30% OFF. Please be aware that the queue fills up very quickly during the sale, so the wait for knit-to-order sweaters may be longer for sweaters ordered during the sale. If timing is an issue, plan to order early during the sale. Sweaters will be knit in the order they are purchased, and the turnaround time will be regularly updated on the Etsy site.

As usual, there will also be an additional special offer for bloggers and Facebookers: Blog about the sale (or post on Facebook) between April 15 and April 22 and receive free shipping on your sale items (in addition to the 30% off) or save 15% on a future order. Blog postings must include at least one picture of a Yellow House Knits sweater. Email yellowhouseknits(at) to let me know where to find your posting, and I will email information about redeeming these offers. So schedule your blog postings now!

Tropical Inspiration

I'm late in posting pictures of my trip to Puerto Rico, but I've been knitting furiously lately. It's hard to imagine that a tropical paradise could be such a great inspiration for wool sweaters, but it really was. The resort where I stayed was an old coconut plantation at the base of the El Yunque rainforest. The folliage was just magnificent--lush greenery and bursts of color at every turn. I've been thinking about how to incorporate these colors into a Puerto Rico-inspired sweater.  Can't wait to show you what I come up with!
