Year In Etsy: 2013

In the spirit of end-of-year retrospectives and grand annual traditions, I bring you the 2013 edition of my Year In Etsy. I was a little less rabid about my Etsy shopping this year (resolution for 2014: buy more Etsy!), but I was no less thrilled with all of my purchases. Thank you for continuing to support handmade!

Happy New Year!  Wishing you only the best in 2014!

Radiant Orchid for 2014

Pantone has just announced that its color of the year for 2014 is Radiant Orchid!  I love this choice, because I feel like purple was MY color of the year for 2013.  It features prominently in the Friendship Heights collection, and just last week I posted a picture of the Porter Street sweater in shades of purple.  So I'm thrilled to see more purple for the coming year!

As I do every year, I'm offering 10 percent off of any custom sweater that includes the Color of the Year as one of the colors.  The offer is good for all of 2014. To take advantage of this deal, email yellowhouseknits[at]gmail.com and mention this offer. I'm excited to create some fabulous sweaters in Radiant Orchid!
