Shop update - life update!

**Shop updates this week!**

Now that we have moved out of the ghetto and into a nice, peaceful neighborhood, my thoughts have once again turned to yarn. Funny how living in fear of armed robbery and random gunfire can be such a distraction! But it is all over now, and our year of Ghetto Lyfe will be one we can look back on and learn lessons from. We are all settled into our new house, and I finally have the time and energy to list all the yarns I've been backlogging in the past month. I plan to list these throughout the week, so keep an eye on my etsy site if you'd like to snag one!

Sea Floor

"Sea Floor"

65 yards

Hand dyed millends wool, shetland wool, emerald bamboo, and firestar nylon. Plied with metallic thread strung with Czech glass beads and faux pearls!

  • Yay for new beginnings! Speaking of, I plan to have Homicide for you next week. I'd have brought it tonight but you don't want what I got.

  • It appears that a safe environment feeds strengthens your creativity! I absolutely love the ?new? direction you are taking with the twisty tightly wound yarns...they are a particular favorite of mine. All three you have posted are gorgeous...the brown pops thaose blues and yellows beautifully in Canyon Trail (reminiscent of the one I bought), I love the white thread in Buzzword, and Sea Floor is a dream with those nestled pearls! Keep it up!
    ps- thanks for checking in regularly at my blog!

  • Thanks Dr! Actually I used the same wool I dyed for your yarn. I was inspired to use it in another "landscape" yarn. So this yarn is like your yarn's fraternal twin! :)
