Oh my goodness so much water. Water still falling from the sky, water on roads, in yards, fields, peoples homes and city streets. The running joke in the dye barn is that we should maybe start building a boat. A big one.
I hope everyone is making good choices and staying safe!
So far the creek here is raging but still is not on the road and our pond is not in the front yard and tress are where they should be. Fingers crossed that this lets up soon!
Since it is super yucky outside we are inside keeping dry and warm the best way we know how with wool!
Before we go any further our haiku winner is Yvonne. It was the knitting ninja that put this one over the top for us!
Thanks to everyone who played along. All of them were great! It was a hard choice. Yvonne if you could email us we will set you up with your prize. firstname.lastname@example.org

I got to play packager and shipping clerk this week since Paula was stranded for a day by road closures. I love packaging up all the orders and sending them out. I like seeing what everyone ordered and seeing familiar names and writing little love notes. So much fun. There was a whole lot of Single Silk Targhee leaving for their new homes. These two H.R.H. Crown Princess Violetta’s are just too pretty not to share. It was hard to ship these out. I’m am not a person who wears purple but this made me happy. I just wanted to sit down and start knitting. Well, after petting ti for awhile.
I also got to pack up our Winter Wonder Bags. So…much fun. I really, really love the Elfin Greens quite a bit but then this lover of all things green would.
Sookie dyed in Hangin” with my Gnomies colorway!
We are launching our last offering of our Big Ass Skein Club today. I have been looking forward to this one all year because it uses one of my favorite yarns of ours, Sookie. I do love a nice bulky yarn and am also partial to singles add in the super softness that this merino is and you have a trifecta of wooley goodness. Also…such quick knitting!
Shannon has designed for us a slipper and hat combo. we were going to just offer slippers but there was so much yardage left we decided the slippers needed a hat buddy.
Strange Jewels Hat & Slippers, inspired by Elizabeth’s Gilbert’s Big Magic: “One of the oldest and most generous tricks that the universe plays on human beings is to bury strange jewels within us all, and then stand back to see if we can ever find them.”
Thank you Shannon for all of the design Magic you gave us this year for our Big Ass Skein Society! You are one of my most favorite strange jewels. I think we are going to need a strange jewel colorway yes?
Okay my lovelies it is off to the barn with me.
