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. Fiber content is 75% superwash merino wool and 25% nylon. I…

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…

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…

I took the last month off from yarn dyeing to rest after a hard push preparing for a craft show in November.  Now, I’m starting to think about new color ways for the winter and spring seasons. In the meantime, I wanted to announce my first sale in my Etsy store!  You save 25% off…

Newest Colorways

I know it’s been awhile since I’ve posted.  I’ve been working on new color ways as well as building stock for an upcoming craft show in DeWitt, MI.  If you’re in the mid-Michigan area, stop by and say hi! My newest colorway is called, Urban Sunrise.  It was inspired by the following photo I took…

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…

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….

A Day at the Pond

I wanted to showcase one of my variegated yarns and decided to also design a new cowl pattern.  It’s going to be called A Day at the Pond, featuring my “DragonFly Dreams” colorway.  I’ve gotten good at “frogging”, which knitters call ripping out a project because we typical say, “rip it, rip it” which sounds…

Anyone for tie-dye?

I got new Jacquard Acid dye colors last week and I love hot pink and turquoise so I decided to do some dyeing using a “resist” technique.  The result? Wow…. I have not decided on the name of this yet but I’m eager to knit with it.  I plan on making this Dropped Stitch scarf from…
