Sale Yarns added to Etsy Store

Happy New Year!  Welcome to 2018! I’ve begun the process of looking back at my first year in business for lessons learned, what worked well, what do I want to do again, etc.  Part of that effort includes me sorting through my color ways to see what was most popular (and I should keep dyeing!)…

Etsy store updates

On this dreary, rainy evening I’ve taken some much needed time to update my store with three colorways previously available at my Fiber Expo and DeWitt Band Booster Craft shows.  All of these yarns are fingering weight yarns with 463 yards per 100g skein.

Announcing Cathedral in DK

I wanted to let you know I ran a contest over on my Facebook page and on Instagram a couple of weeks ago to name a new colorway.  Clare G. suggested “Cathedral” for this yarn and I think it’s a perfect fit!  The name reminds me of stained glass windows. The yarn base is a…

Let’s go on an Expedition!

Last August, I started design my first asymetrical shawl on our expedition to Stitches Midwest 2016. It’s a fairly large shape sized about 59 by 42 inches. It has very easy garter stitch sections alternating with a lace section based on the Elfin lace stitch in Barbara Walker’s stitch dictionaries.  The pattern has been test…

25% off select skeins in my Etsy store!

I’ve been doing an inventory of my colorways and have a few skeins in my Etsy store which I consider, “one of a kind” that I can’t repeat since they were skeins when I was learning certain dye techniques. Quantities are very limited and will be discounted until they are gone! The first one is…

Do you like Licorice?

I was playing around with some dyes last month and tried a new technique for where I place the dye onto the yarn. I was quite pleased at how this yarn turned out.  The colors are not truly striping but they certainly spiral around the leg of the sock. I’ve noticed I’ve started liking gray…
