Help! I Want My Blog Back!
And my knitting...and parts of my life...
Well, it only makes sense that I've spent most of my waking hours over at etsy this week, but it's not going to stay that way.
I want to blog, and I want to knit, and I don't want to spend all my time on the computer.
I can keep up with dyeing and mailing and the other details of running an online shop. but I can't do it in two places at the same time. Can't be done. Not by this woman at least.
So here's the scoop: I've moved the business to etsy. If you want to buy my yarn, please go and buy it over there. I've had a great week. Etsy is so easy. I list the yarn, and I mail the yarn, and they take care of everything else. If you click on my shop, you'll see that it has been greatly simplified, and the etsy link is there. You can still email me for special orders, but everything else is at etsy. Don't be scared. Etsy is fun. You'll like it. I promise. :)
My new true love (don't tell Doug): This came in the mail yesterday and guess what it is???? Well, can you guess??
This...well, these...are two 1-kilo cones of Blue Face Leicester 2-ply Sportweight.
Sock knitters, you can start drooling now.
This stuff is amaaaaaazing. It's soft and strong at the same time. It has luster and great twist. It has body (or is that wine) and substance. And it dyes like a dream. Oh, I am going to have fun with this. Two kilos. That's a whole lotta socks.
I was in a spring fling kinda mood last night, and I had to get my hands and some dye onto some of that BFL. The outcome: LemonLime.
This one's called: Jeans And A T-Shirt
The one at the top of the page is: Mexican Blanket. And you know where you can find these if you want 'em.
I've had some good suggestions from blog readers this week. I am hoping to install some flicker boxes over on the side with pix of my yarn and sold yarn. I know I'm well over 100 skeins sold since opening up here in March, but I don't have a firm total on that until I update my records.
And I want to get back to the business of knitting. Sockapalooza has sent out the invites, and so has Lisa -- for the elann shawl'along. I'm going to knit!
