End of summer clearance

I can’t believe the summer has gone by so fast!  I’ve been dyeing yarn for Apple Tree Lane in Clare, MI and had a trunk show last week at The Yarn Stop in Clawson, MI.

I have added some of my one of a kind skeins of fingering sock weight and worsted weight yarns to my Etsy store.  All my yarns are dyed in a pet-free and smoke-free home.Screen Shot 2018-09-01 at 10.07.46 AM

Latest Yarns in my Etsy Store

I’ve been super busy building up my yarn inventory for the Spring Fiber Expo at Washtenaw Farm Council Grounds next weekend in Ann Arbor, MI.  You can read more about it here.  It will be my first time displaying my yarns in a fiber festival scenario.  I am sharing a booth with a good friend of mine, MidMittenKnitter, who makes a variety of wonderful project bags.  Her Etsy store is here.

I’ve developed some new colorways that include Life’s a Beach and Caribbean Rose.  One of the hard things about dyeing yarn is that I want to knit with everything I dye!  I guess if I did knitting all the time, I wouldn’t have time for yarn dyeing either.  I do have to say that I still smile and giggle when I dye yarn.  I love to see the dyes set on the yarn and watch the yarn go from bare “sheep” color to a beautifully colored skein of yarn.

Here is a snapshot of my inventory in my store.

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 on my way to work recently.

It took me a few tries to get the dyeing method to where there’s minimal blending between the three colors.  I’m really excited about this one and will be adding it to my Etsy shop mid-November.

I’ve also been playing with speckled yarn and I’ve gotten a lot of rave reviews from my fellow knitters. Which one is your favorite?  They are all so pretty and very soft I have a hard time giving them up for the show!  Some of them are dyed on a worsted weight yarn (100% Superwash Merino) as well as two different sock yarn (fingering weight).  One is a smooth yarn (75% Superwash Merino wool/25% Nylon) and a twisted yarn base (100% Superwash Merino).  I will also be adding these to my Etsy shop mid-November.

I’ve also been working on camouflage yarn.  It’s called Woodland Camo and is 100% Superwash Merino wool.  It’s great for making gifts for your favorite out-doors kind of person.  Fingerless mitts and cowls have been a favorite of my husband’s.  I do have some of this listed in my Etsy shop already.

I hope you enjoyed the eye candy!  Feel free to contact me here or via my Etsy shop to let me know if you want to place a custom order for the speckled yarn or Urban Sunrise.
