Beneath the Cherry Trees & Luna Moth


This colorway is "Beneath the Cherry Trees." Manly asked if I could please make a colorway called cherry blossom, and that's how I came upon this colorway.

This colorway is called "Luna Moth." I handpainted this one, so there are many different colors and color variations.

I'm dyeing two more skeins tonight in a different colorway. Dyeing is great--you get to work on other tasks as the dye sets, which is a good thing, considering the overwhelming amount of work I have to do this week.

I'm going to open up my etsy shop on Friday. I'll post here once it's up and running.

Thanks so much everyone for your encouragement and thoughts on Kelp Sea Horse.

I am glad to have a date for stopping by. I am busy on Fridays, though. Hope there is at least still something to see on Saturday!

I love how the cherry blossom yarn is the color of cherry blossom buds-- the anticipation of spring.

Looking forward to getting schooled in yarn dyeing--and in buying some of your beautiful yarn from your etsy site if it's not all gone by the time I get back from the Narrative conference on Sunday.

Hey there, Lone Knitter! Thanks for the comment on my chevron scarf... I felt that it was my absolute duty to clear something up... I didn't kool-aid dye the yarn for my scarf, it's STR. No, no, I am not THAT talented, I'm afraid. I called it kool-aid in reference to "cult kool-aid", my allusion to the craze that has ensued in making these chevron scarves with STR.

No, we knitters have to go to talented hand-dyers such as yourself to get our fix, and I'm no exception!!

Lovely colors!!

When I was a kid I got a Luna Moth one summer from a vendor that set up every year at the local Fred Meyer... You set the cacoon out and when it hatched just let it fly all over the house. It eats everything it needs when it's a caterpillar so eats nothing as an adult, all I had to do was enjoy it! It was really cool... except I was cleaning the (unfertilized) eggs off of everything for months afterwards LOL (it especially liked the trim around the doors and windows)...
