Of course we are having an online Mill End Sale!
They are up on the website right now!
Details are right below, for those of you who are new to our Mystery Bags. I had a whole lot of fun putting these together!! I dyed a whole bunch of them as Rare Gems a few weeks ago and so quite a few of them have a Rare Gem and then a regular colorway in the package. I love some of the combo’s so much it was exceptionally hard to leave them for you all. Feel the hue love, my friends!!
Years and years ago when I first started over-dyeing I always had to let someone else rinse and hang them to dry. Otherwise I ended up with half of them in my stash which kinda defeats the purpose. I wasn’t even allowed in the barn while they were drying. I kid you not. I swear that the barn sale we about 3 years ago was just my stash from all that Rare Gem hoarding. Yeah…the first step is seeing and admitting you have a problem,which is hard when your business is yarn and you have two big storage pods .
Now I’m really good at enjoying them as they come out of the pot without owning them for myself. It makes me feel good that they are off to knitterly homes that will love them as I do. However. the place I fall is in putting the Mystery Bags together. It takes me quite awhile to do because I have to ooh and aw over almost every one and take notes or pictures or both and then I can put them in the tubs to be shipped out to you. I’m so happy with the combo’s in this batch. I wish I had all day to take pictures of them all to show you.
Unfortunately I do not. I have quite the list of things to get done in the next 14 days before my surgery. And yes I am a bit nervous about it all, as it gets closer and closer.
I want to thank everyone who came out this past Saturday to the barn sale. It was truly wonderful to see so many happy familiar faces and have a visit . Thank you to those who made color with us!! So much fun. I’m going to post the few pictures I have of our fun in the scrolly thing at the top of the blog.
