can you even believe it?  i don’t think there have been any since before the babe was born.  and he’s 5 months old!  snapdragon sport up in the shop.  i really really want to use the lavender and olive for some colorwork mittens.  i love love love them together. but i’ll let you have first dibs, since i won’t get around to knitting them for quite a while.  there’s also one skein of purplish blue.

snapdragon sport - new colors

i also have new colors of snapdragon worsted, rainbow chard light, lamb’s pride bulky, a couple colorways of falkland top, and 3 skeins of handspun. i hope to get them up in the next week or two.

and today i ordered 150 more skeins to flesh out the color wheel in each yarn for the pittsburgh knit and crochet festival in february.

handspun update

first of all, thanks for all of the baby and soaker love! it made my day :)

handspun update!

going up in the shop today!  i’ve been having lots of fun taking one colorway and plying it with another.  both of the top yarns were made that way.  i can’t encourage it enough.  and there is actually more than one skein of each of these, with the exception of the upper left.

have a great day!

p.s. and here’s this month’s newsletter, if you’re interested.

rainbow chard!

it has been a while since a rainbow chard update has graced these pages… but here it is!

rainbow chard update!

i dyed 4 skeins of each color, but a couple sold at pgh knit and crochet, so check quantities if you have a project in mind.  there’s also one more colorway, but the mosaic did not permit me to get it in, so it’s a surprise over in the shop.

rainbow chard is the perfect yarn for these patterns: baby beau, baby belle, beau, belle, reflection hat, baby eggplant, and the snow cat hat. it also is very nice mixed and matched with commercial and handspun yarns.

and it has been updated

apparently i lied to you when i said no more updates until after the show ;)

wednesday update

that is what i’d deem the good kind of lying. two skeins handspun and 3 skeins each colorway of rainbow chard light – going up in the shop today! and i’ll be trying to get together an update for next week too.

p.s. and don’t forget this giveaway for some of my yarns and patterns!
