P.S. I am still in Kentucky for the holidays until January 2nd, so all orders will ship after I return…but wanted to offer up the discount all the same! Thanks to my partner for his laptop and graphic skills– I did not plan ahead and just have my iPad and iPhone with me!
Just added some of these coveted grab bags to the Etsy shop! Only 5 available, so get one while you can of these lovely little bits of silk blend spinning fiber, in gorgeous glowing colors.
I’ve also been finding odds and ends while cleaning my office and have been putting them up for sale on Instagram— first email in comments (on Instagram) wins and a paypal invoice will be sent. These lovelies are 495 yards of dk weight alpaca/shetland/merino/polwarth handspun.
Lazy Daisy on High Twist Sock, looking pretty. :-)
New colorways don’t come easily these days, so I’m always happy when one shows up. I don’t use images very often at all for inspiration for colorways; usually I start an already created color way, put the first color on, and then the “what if?”‘s start up in my mind. It’s really “playing by eye” instead of “playing by ear”. And sometimes, I’ll get distracted and put down the wrong color, and it goes from there. Happy mistakes! Involuntary and Firebrand are the new ones.
I think I should do a post soon about my colorways and color way name inspirations; it seems to be pretty different from most dyers.
Find these new colorways in the Etsy shop!
By the way….mini-skein sets make excellent stocking stuffers….
Somehow massive piles of yarn, true seconds, skeins that just somehow never made it to the site, you name it, have been piling up in my studio. So I’m having a big Seconds Sale tomorrow, Saturday November 14th, at 1 p.m. PST in the Etsy shop. Because OMG, this stuff needs to find homes. This is going to be a multiple parts sale, because there’s just no way I can get everything ready for one single update, but this is part one and there’s some great stuff at great prices. I’ve been putting some on a Pinterest board for previews, so you can go see some of what there’ll be and prices and such. See you online tomorrow!
One of the drawbacks of being a one-woman operation is that it’s hard to keep everything in stock as much as I’d like. But I’m slowly getting around to updating the GLOW colors on High Twist Sock… including Baltic, which is just such an awesome color way. One day I’ll make myself a simple pullover from it. You can buy it here.
