2019 Summer Mini Skein Mini Series - SAMPLER PREORDERS!


I had so much fun with the 2018 ChemKnits Chanukah Special that I didn't want to wait until the end of the year to do another mystery sampler.  I am pleased to officially announce the 2019 Summer Mini Skein Mini Series coming in July 2019.  5 days, 5 dyeing videos, 5 mini skeins to unwrap while watching, 1 yarn base.  The unboxing will be an experience and the whole thing will be so much fun!

Preorders for the 2019 Summer Sampler are now available in the ChemKnits Creations Etsy Store.  

There are three different sampler options available: 50 g fingering weight, 100 g fingering weight, and 100 g DK weight.  The 100 g samplers come with a hand stamped project bag!  I am including a lot of details for the sampler pre-order below.


2019 Summer Sampler Options: 
  • 50 g Sock Sampler 
    • 5 wrapped 10 g miniskeins of sock yarn, one dyed in each of the videos
    • 75% Superwash Merino / 25% Nylon blend.  Sock - 46 yards / 10 g
  • 100 g Sock Sampler 
    • 5 wrapped packages with 1-3 miniskeins in each one for a total of 100 g of fingering weight sock yarn
    • Sampler will contain a combination of 10 g and 20 g miniskeins.
    • Hand Stamped ChemKnits Project Bag
    • 75% Superwash Merino / 25% Nylon blend.  Sock - 92 yards / 20 g
  • 100 g DK Sampler
    • 5 wrapped 20 g miniskeins of sock yarn, one dyed in each of the videos
    • Hand Stamped ChemKnits Project Bag
    • 75% Superwash Merino / 25% Nylon blend.  49 yards / 20 g

Can I add on more yarn to my sampler? 
YES!  You can add on limited edition sock yarn (base TBD) or double stranded sock blanks (75% Superwash Merino/ 25% Nylon).  I have set these up in a separate add on listing so you can add multiple skeins if you want.  You must purchase a sampler in order to purchase the add ons!

What is the Summer Mini Skein Mini Series (SMSMS)? 
At the end of July, there will be a special week filled with dyeing videos featuring mini skeins.  The SMSMS will feature at least 5 new videos that are a bonus on top of the normal ChemKnits Tutorials release schedule.   I will explore all kinds of techniques where dyeing smaller amounts of yarn (10 or 20 g minis) is advantageous.  Think lots of gradient and fade type sets!

When will the SMSMS air?
The 2019 ChemKnits Summer Mini Skein Mini Series will start on July 22, 2019.  I will release each dyeing video (1-5) after sunset EST on the following nights: 7/22, 7/23, 7/24, 7/25, and 7/26.  There will be a bonus episode for the add on sock yarn & sock blank.  Each package will be labeled 1-5 with the date the video comes out so you know which package to open on each day.

All of the yarn dyeing tutorial videos will be publicly available on the ChemKnits Tutorials YouTube Channel.  You don't need to purchase a sampler to join in the SMSMS fun!

Tell me more about the project bag
The 100% cotton project bag is included in the 100 g samplers.  The bags are approximately 9.5" x 11" with a drawstring closure.  This is the first edition of the ChemKnits Creations Project Bag!  All bags have been pre-washed before decorating so there should be minimal shrinkage with washing.  Care instructions: Machine wash cold inside out and iron if needed.  

Can all of the minis be used in a fade set?  Can they be used in one project?
All of the miniskeins will feature the same 75% Superwash Merino / 25% Nylon yarn base in either Fingering Weight or DK weight. These can easily be combined in one project, however they are not being dyed with a specific fade or colorwork project in mind. There will be a variety of dye techniques on each of the minis ranging from speckles, semi solids, and more.  Each video might feature a wonderful fade set, but each sampler will only have 1-3 skeins from a given video.

When will the samplers ship? 
The samplers will ship at the very end of June 2019 so they will hopefully arrive before the July 22 premiere of the SMSMS.  I cannot guarantee international arrival times since customs can sometimes hold packages for unknown lengths of time, but I will do my best to ship international orders first.

Watch me announce the 2019 Summer Sampler on YouTube:
I will be live TONIGHT (Thursday 4/25/19) at 8:30 PM EST on YouTube to talk about the Sampler.  I hope to see you there!
