Electrifying hand dyed yarns, with personality!

It was a Fiesta!

Wow, sorry I’ve been kind of MIA lately.  Turns out preparing for my first fiber event (not to mention entertaining a busy 1-year-old) is exhausting!

I’m happy to report that for my first event, it was great!  I met a lot of awesome people, and some of them even liked and bought my yarn! 😀  Big shout out to Candy Skien and Oink Pigments, who were not only lovely neighbors, but really awesome ladies with lots of tips for this newbie!

I had another bout of camnesia, and only snagged a few pictures all weekend… regrettably all of my own booth haha.

The booth, day one!

Those awesome stuffed Lazer Sheep are courtesy of my mom’s awesome sewing skills!

And here’s a little sneak peak of what will be coming to the Etsy shop, as soon as I get a chance to properly photograph them…

Buttons!!!

Buttons!!!

New colorways plus BUTTONS!!!  Each skein of yarn will now be coming with a button of their colorway namesake!  I’m super excited about them, and I’ve loved drawing them all up, so I hope you all enjoy them too 😀

Now, I’m having a little break, knitting on my Aloha Sheep hat (using my new knitting bag from Slipped Stitch Studios), and ordering more blank yarn so I can fill some custom orders.  Hope you all had a nice weekend.  What have you been working on?

Eeee!!!

I have brought her to the woolly side! This, is my sister’s first knitting! I couldn’t even wait until I had decent light to post it!

She has already said that knitters should be selling their stuff for way more because of all the work and love put in, and when her husband went to bed, she said, “Just one more row.”  !!!  One of us!  One of us!  Haha I couldn’t be more proud!

Tomorrow night we have another date to sit and knit, and then she wants to go to a yarn shop to pick out her own yarn for a project (this was something I had sitting in the stash).

Please send her luck, and lots of good knitting juju 🙂
