It's the kids' spring break week off school, and it was raining today, so everybody was home. I had them all employed at one time or another.
Colin earned some money winding up skeins for me. There was no point showing his face. That's what it looks like anyway: a flop of hair.
Hayley showed Colin how to do what is normally her job. She graciously allowed him a chance to earn today.
Hayley likes "stomping" on the wet yarn rolled up in towels. Hayley only weighs about 50 pounds, so it's a pretty gentle stomping.
I received a special gift from one of my yarn clients this weekend. JC is a graphic artist and emailed me an image of labels she had designed for me to attach to my yarn. Doug printed them off on glossy card-stock, and now I won't have to use my tacky hand-printed ones anymore. Thank you JC!!!
And what did I do? Well, I dyed yarn of course. And now that I'm feeling on top of the game, I dyed some yarn for ME. That's right, me. I dyed two skeins of Galway worsted in my fave Canadian Maple colorway. I'll probably need more for my project, but this will get me started. Now I wish they would hurry up and dry.
I received an email this evening from the first person to receive dyed yarn in the mail from my shop. That means that a bunch of other yarn should be reaching destinations soon.
