The good ol’ summer time hues

What you see in the basket on our homepage is a just a few of the new colorways I’ve come up with for the end of summer, the quickly approaching fall season and lastly, new holiday hues. I have spent the past two months pouring my heart and soul into dye and then onto yarn and having a grand ol’ time doing so.

I have a few new  dye techniques I’ve come up with along with a series or two or three…brewing. I know…I’ve been hinting at a new series for awhile now. I don’t mean to be color coy I just want it to be exactly how I envision it in my head, to be as it is on the yarn.  One of these series I am so excited about I can barely stand it. It is the SCUM series. Yup, Pond Scum’s family has moved into town and there are one rowdy scumtastic bunch, just as you imagine they would be.  They will be making their debut around the 2nd week of August. So stay tuned!

Coming next week is the first 4 colorways in my Grimm series. I am thoroughly obsessed with Grimm. I came a little late to the party ( as usual) . Which means I got to watch the first two seasons at a reckless, only slightly obsessive, pace. Grimm is set in Portland which added even more depth to it and a whole lot of charm.  If you are also a Grimm fan let me know what you think. I think I hit the mark on this one. Also what Grimm type colorways would you like to see?

I’m considering watching it again in the next two weeks as I recover from my mastectomy. I have to watch it again now for research, right?

Yes, it is that time. I go in today for my bilateral. I feel like I am in as good a place as you can be with something like this and am ready to move on to whatever is next.  It’s been a whirlwind here getting ready for me to be out of the dye loop for two weeks or more but we are there!

I want to say a really big Thank you!  for all of the love and support. My heart has been overflowing with gratitude for it all.  My surgery is at 4:00 tomorrow so if you have your knitting and can knit a stitch or two in my direction I would love it!  xoxo


Here’s the first Grimm color way.  Whatcha think?

    Hi Tina. I haven’t been keeping up with the blog lately, but just clicked through on the beautiful new colours on the front page of the store. I’m not familiar with Grimm, but I think those new blues are excellent! Also, I’m sending positive thoughts your way. 🙂

    Won’t all the “blue” people be thrilled? Grimm eludes me as I don’t watch tv at all, at all. Of course I’m thinking of you. You should be half an hour into your surgery at this moment. thinking healing thoughts.
    Love, Hazel.

    I too am obsessed with Grimm (and Portland, if the truth be told). I came a season late to the party and was happy to binge watch the first season.

    Yea! Love the colorway (yup, I am a “blue” person).

    I am thinking of you and wishing you well with all my heart.

    Have been away from the blog while I was teaching summer school. Thinking of you. Hope you are well into the recovery stage and will back to the dying loop soon. The blues are great, but I’m really waiting to see what you have cooked up for the Scumtastic bunch – big fan of Pond Scum and company.

    *claps*YAY! Grimm! (yes after rereading I see you were talking about the TV series which I had started watching a couple years ago before moving in with my older brother who has no cable.) I don’t know if you remember me but I spoke with you a few months back about really wanting to do a crochet tapestry of Grimms Fairy-tale tarot cards. There are a few colorways that I see already that would be good for this one but was wondering if any new thoughts came to your mind. If I said “Allerleirauh” what would you create? Would it be something to do with one of the gowns she wore to the party or would it be her furs?
