Shop Update: The Blues (and greens)

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!

Doing Inventory is Bad for the Stash

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.

LOOK AT IT! Amazing. Have a peek at the projects using it on Rav. You're jealous now right? She got it at Paradise Fibers, if you're interested.

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!

Shop Update!

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.



Time for a winner!

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.....

Jennifer G!!


I'll email you so you can pick something awesome :D

Thanks for playing, everybody!
