Some of the yarns above may be sold out or limited edition. I try to replace popular ones as soon as I can.

Wow, guys! It's been a while! Super sorry for the lack of posting, I get so caught up in making items, listing in my shop, and posting to social media I sometimes forget I even have a blog. I'll try to post more, I promise!
Well, so what's been up with me lately? I've been focusing more on dyeing fibers and spinning handspun yarns as opposed to dyeing commercially spun yarns lately. Not that I'm against commercial yarns, I think they are wonderful for a quick dye and I am also able to make them a little more affordable for you guys since there are fewer hours of work involved in making them on my part.
But, SPINNING is the reason I got into this little business. I just love turning a big fluff of wool into a usable, squishable yarn. That is why I am focusing on my handspun for a little while. I am also leaning away from the sock yarns (because aren't there already just soo many options for those already?) to make way for the bigger, bulkier, quicker project yarns. I feel like there just aren't enough Aran/Bulky/Super Bulky yarns out there, and those are my favorite types, so why not try to bring more of the bigg'uns out into the Etsy world?
I'll also try to start adding more dyed merino wool braids and hand-carded rolags, but those are hard for me to add to the shop. The reason being, once I see it dried and braided I just can't help but spin it up myself! That urge is a hard one to fight, because I just love spinning so much.
Anyways, how have you guys been? What kind of projects are you working on right now? How are you managing all the holiday projects I bet you're working on (I am too, and totally NOT doing well at time management, lol!)?
