I know lots of you are trapped in some sort of polar vortex madness. That sucks. It's sunny (if a bit nippy) here and I thought I'd do a nice bright update to send some sunshine out into the yarny world.

I've got a pretty little update for you guys today! It features three of my favourite colours to dye - Deep Space, Supergreen, and Kozmic Blues. I took the photos with my ipod today to see how it worked out. I think next week I'll be going back to the regular camera. The colours are fairly accurate but the background isn't as bright as I would like. Ah well, I tried.
Thanks for looking guys!
I had originally planned to do my shop inventory on January first, prior to re-opening for the new year. That plan was thrown off by the death plague (better now, thanks for asking!) and I didn't get to it until yesterday. By that point I was feeling pretty nonplussed by the whole process, which may have affected my grabby hands, because I kept moving things across the room to my stash instead of counting them.
These pretties (Squish in Crabapple Jelly and November) will likely become Veera's Here and There hat:
A skein of Squish in Diva will morph into something lovely for a March girlbaby:
I will finally create the perfect Colour Affection using Kashmir in Havana Club, Pinkle, and Sweet Spot:
And this batt was just too perfect to let go (sorry guys, but you can hardly blame me):
Also detrimental to the stash - my holy grail in sock yarn form. I've been on the hunt for Trekking XXL in colour 550 (a better name would have been "giveittomerightthefucknowi'mgonnadiefromlackofrainbows”) for about a year now, and my awesome sister-in-law gave it to me this Christmas! I'm a lucky girl.
There are also undyed sweater lots set aside for me (yay! I'm thinking red for one!). I don't really know what happened - I've been so good in previous years. I am going to have to work so hard to decrease stash volume this year. Wish me better luck!
Two listings went up today - it's a small update but a good one. Possessed Printer on Kashmir:
And luscious Havana Club on Sublime DK:
I've been rocking a pretty bare-bones system for getting listing photos lately (I think the highest tech bit I've got right now is a bit of Scotch tape covered in pet hair), but lots of natural light means nice accurate colours! My only problem is purples - my camera hates them. Would you all mind terribly if I just started using my iPod camera for the purple yarns? I'm getting tired of the epic photo editing sessions.
Thanks for all your support over the weekend my dears!
I tallied up the purchases, with number one being the oldest, and drew a random number!
Lucky number 9! Who are you... let's see.....
I'll email you so you can pick something awesome :D
Thanks for playing, everybody!
