Fresh from the dye pot

I know it’s been a while since I’ve posted but I’ve been working on building stock for an upcoming craft show in DeWitt, MI on November 12th.  I’ve been experimenting with some new color ways and am having to restrain myself from knitting with my dyed yarn!  I keep thinking, “Oh, that dip-dyed Honey would make wonderful…

Splash of Color Yarns available at Etsy

Greetings to the last part summer!  I can’t believe this summer has gone by so fast.  I spent four days at the STITCHES Midwest conference in Schaumburg, IL and learned more about antique knitting patterns and history, double knitting, as well as knitting a beaded bracelet.

Introducing: Desert Sunset and Twinkling Teal

Hi there!  I wanted to introduce two of my latest creations out of my dye pot.  I typically do my yarn dying from 5am-6am before I have to get ready for my “real” job.  Sometimes, it’s hard to stop and start my work day! I love the orange, purple, and pink colors in the yarn….

Help me name this…

I dyed two skeins of yarn on Sunday and loved all the colors that resulted! Sometimes the color way name “speak” to me and I know what to call it but I’m stumped on this one.  I was thinking “Dragonfly” but I was curious if you had some suggestions. What I find so interesting is…

Just Getting Started

I wanted to start a site to showcase the yarns I’ve been dyeing and to grow that into a place where I can sell them to yarn enthusiasts. My yarns are all super wash wool and are full of color! Think about these words:

Bold

Colorful
Kaleidoscopic
Vibrant
