in progress!

January 29, 2014

Over the next little while I will be reworking my website here into something a little less ‘bloggy’ because frankly, I suck at blogging! I am so so so busy with three little ones now that the mere thought of blogging makes my head spin. I am still doing as much dyeing as I can cram into my schedule but I am just a one-woman show! My little batches of hand dyed yarn are going to stay little batches for awhile yet!

I will be putting in another order next week for more yarn. I will be adding a worsted weight to my shop finally! Exciting stuff! Stay tuned…

Cyber Monday deal!

November 30, 2013

I am having a cyber Monday deal to clear out some inventory in my shop and make room for new stock in time for Christmas! Please use coupon code CYBMONDAY2013 for 15% off anything in my shop Monday only!!!

Please note I will be closing up my shop on Dec 12th – 14th to attend a local Faire and will not be adding new inventory until after then (on the 14th).

Here’s some goodies in my shop right now!!! They wont be there for long though!

I’ve been away from the dyepot for a few months while awaiting our newest family member. She’s beautiful by the way and we are all so in love! She’s already a month old and I’ve just started getting back into a (good enough) routine. I put in another big order for  yarn and did some dyeing last weekend. Here are the results:

Some of these have already been purchased and are on their way to their new home, but the rest are in my shop!

I will be dyeing more this weekend and hope to have them up by early next week!

newest doll

doll2

 

After my doll making adventures a couple years ago, I decided this time to buy a hand made doll from a lady on Etsy and finish her myself. I love how she turned out and I am so pleased that I did not have to spend 20+ hours swearing at my sewing machine and stuffing wool into tight spaces. I truly love this doll, she is beautiful.

I spun the hair on Dinah, my new Country Spinner 2! It’s a super fiberlicious blend of merino, faux cashmere, silk and other lovelies in a combination of deep pinks, browns and creams. I Navajo plied the single and let the ‘hair’ twist back on itself again. It’s a thick set of dreads!

My daughter LOVES her doll. Loves.

Well, there’s a good reason I haven’t been very active on here lately…

I have been busy making baby number 3!

Another little one has decided to join us and we will be meeting her this fall! This was completely unexpected but very welcome! We are all so very excited!

There’s lots to do before she comes. I have been working on cleaning and organizing our tiny space, making the tiniest bedroom suitable for 2 kids, making a doll for my daughter for when her baby sister joins us, knitting a baby blanket, sewing a ton of kids toys and doll clothes and I have been trying to come up with a functioning family routine again! Being pregnant and having two kids 3 and under is not easy! I can imagine having 3 kids is not going to be a walk in the park either but we are still thrilled! In love is more like it.

 

 

(My Etsy shop has been a little more scarce than I wanted lately but it’s the best I can do with the little time and energy I can afford right now! I ship the moment an order comes in and will slowly be dyeing and filling the shop again so stay tuned.)

I’m still here

April 8, 2013

I realize I’ve been away from my blog for awhile so it’s time to update. I’ve taken a bit of a spring break but am now back at the dye pot ready to go again. My Etsy store has been put on vacation for a week while I get my stock back up and will reopen on Monday April 15th!

I have some beautiful new yarn bases that I am excited about! A new 2 ply tweed sock, 85% superwash Bluefaced Leicester / 15% NEP (nylon) with 438 yards, and a beautiful luxurious lace weight in 80% superwash BFL / 20% silk with 875 yards. The colours so far are coming out beautifully! I can’t wait to put them up in my store, it will be nice to have more inventory for sale as we are in the market for a house right now and every little bit of $ helps! So I will see you all in a few days for a sneak peek at the newest yarns!
