Shop Update – 25th January 2017

This week’s shop update will contain yarn, yarn and more yarn! I have a bunch of new colourways in pink and red for my first quarter theme. I was really pleased with the saturation of colour in these new colourways and I hope you love them too! 🙂

The first colourway was inspired by the women’s march on the 21st January 2017. I wanted a bright pink to knit myself a Pussy Hat so ‘Get Your Hands Off My Pussy!’ was created:


It’s layers of pink with a blush of purple. Of course it had to have purple. Have you met me?!! 😉

Next up, we have a sequel colour to my ‘Blushing Rose’ colourway. This is called ‘Wilted’:

It’s a similar colour and dye method, but it doesn’t have any pink but it has a yellow tint to it. Next time I’ll add a little more yellow. I thought ‘Wilted’ would be a fitting name for the previously ‘Blushing Rose’. 😉

‘Does Anybody Know How to Hold My Heart’ is a variegated pink and red. It has tiny splashes of purple and grey with a few black speckles:

This colourway was named after a song by Sara Bareilles, one of my favourite performers. ❤

And on the red track, may I present ‘Flame Trees’:

My second colourway named after a song. 😉 But a quick Google Image search for flame trees gave me all the colours found in this yarn; deep red, brown and red-orange.

And finally, ‘Chocolate Berries’:

The colours are exactly what the colourway name implies; purple, pink, burgundy with a milk chocolate brown. Yum! Is anyone else getting hungry…? 😉

So I hope you can join me at 7pm ACDT tonight! 😀

Shop Update – 11th January 2017

This week’s shop update will consist of mostly yarn. I’ve got six new skeins and two new colourways to debut! 🙂 I’m pretty excited about the new ones and I hope you’ll love them too!

My goal for the first quarter of 2017 is to work on my catalogue of pink and red colourways ‘cos Valentine’s Day is in the first quarter! So here I offer ‘Be Still My Beating Heart’:

It’s a lovely vibrant tonal of pinks through reds with a touch of brown. I’m pretty pleased with this one as it was pretty much a splash of this and a splash of that to achieve it! 😀 I’ve written down the formula so it should be easily repeated. I’ll have two skeins of this on my DK base.

The next new colourway is ‘Winterfell’, inspired by a braid of fibre I purchased from Kathy’s Fibres. The colour is inspired by the cherry blossom tree at Winterfell in ‘Game of Thrones’. I’ll have two skeins of this on my Bamboo Sock base.

Lastly for yarn, I have some of my favourite colourway I’ve created so far, ‘Wisteria Arbour’. I’ve knit two accessories in this already (a cowl and a tam) and my current cardigan project is also being knit in this. It’s been very popular when I’ve posted about it to the point where I’ve also had a custom order for it! I love that! 😀 So grab these if you can!


It’s a beautiful tonal mix of lilac, purple and grey. I’ll have two skeins of this on my Fingering base.

Finally, I’ll have three knitted necklaces in the shop. These are such a cool way to add a bit of knitting to your outfit if it’s too hot for sweaters! Wear your love of knitting where everyone can see with one of these awesome necklaces!

So check out the MyMuddlings Etsy Store on Wednesday 11th January 2017 at 7pm ACDT to grab your favourite!
