Woolly Boully at the Yarn Grove

Last week, Sheri put my yarn up at the Loopy Ewe, and it's all gone. All gone. I'll have to start dyeing more yarn the moment I get back to Brooklyn. There will be no rest for me! A-dyeing and a-cranking and a-winding I will go.

There are, however, some colorways available at The Yarn Grove. The gals there also posted a really nice bio of how I happened upon my yarn-dyeing life. Stop by if you have a moment, and if you really want one of those colorways, you should purchase now--one colorway is already gone.

Texas is Texas. It's hot and the nights are full of thunder and lightning summer storms. The chiggers and mosquitoes are out a-biting. The fireants are a-building. The dogs are a-stratching from the fleas.

I'm almost done with my Father's Day socks, and I wish I could post a picture for you; however, as ever, this internet connection is so slow. Maybe if I just wait a long, long time the photo will eventually load, but I don't know. Sometimes I don't know if the connection is doing anything at all.

This new colorway is working up just gorgeous! So glad to hear people are loving your hand-dyes. They've become more difficult to acquire, though, which is bad for us sock yarn hafta-havers. ;)

Ah, the old days, when you were yet to have been discovered...

Have fun in TX!

I'm happy to say that I just discovered your yarns recently through The Loopy Ewe and absolutely LOVE your yarns! So soft - and the colors are gorgeous. I'm definitely a fan. Naturally I just HAD to order more through the Yarn Grove. I'm now addicted. Please keep up the good work to feed my new habit - Ha! :0)

Thanks so much for your kind words, Vicki. I'll be working on some more colorways once I'm back in Brooklyn, but perhaps I shouldn't have told you that. Thanks for the support!

Your yarn flew at the Loopy Ewe! I'm not even a little bit surprised though. Your colours are such inspired and unique combinations. I am looking forward to seeing the real thing when my 2 skeins arrive.
