Is Fall your favorite season?

I absolutely love the fall season here in Michigan, with the cooler weather, sunny days that make the fall colors so vibrant!  Of course, there’s apple cider, muffins, pies, etc. Whether you’re a knitter or crocheter, I’ve got a perfect set of fall colorways just for you. Check out these listings in my Etsy store:

Etsy Shop Updates

It’s been a busy couple of months with summer camping, getting my son back into the swing of high school and dyeing yarn, lots of it!  I want to let you know of a few new colorways that I’ve recently added my Etsy store.

The first two are my first Halloween colorways as you might’ve been able to tell from the names.  Hobgoblin will create skinny stripes if knit in the round for socks.  Witches Brew is a variegated yarn.

Do you enjoy uniquely bold hand dyed yarns? Opulence and Fall Splendor fit meet that description.  Opulence is a variegated yarn made from greens, golds and purples, a sign of royalty.  On the other hand, those are typical Mardi Gras colors.  The other yarn, Fall Splendor, is a beautifully saturated yarn blending golds, rusts, and greens that represent a beautiful autumn season in the great state of Michigan.

Being thankful….

I want to thank all my customers and businesses with whom I’ve worked this year.  It’s been a joy creating yarn that you love!  I find the times I can interact with you directly at fiber shows or trunk shows very inspiring.  I am amazed sometimes as my customers pair different colorways together for their projects that I wouldn’t have thought about.

This fall, my husband helped me move my yarn dyeing into the basement.  I got tired of having to clean up all my equipment and supplies in order to cook a meal!  Do you have one of those standard white hood range light/fan thing over your stove?  Well mine is no longer white! LOL  It’s rainbow colored. 🙂

Now I can keep my mess downstairs and it’s my own little “cave”.  I use a Google Home mini to play my favorite artists for dyeing — Boney James, Dave Koz, Euge Groove, etc.  Occassionally, there’s hard rock from the 80’s in there too.

Hopefully, you will find time to be with friends and family this weekend and find time to knit or crochet……Happy Thanksgiving.
