A new website, and new blog!

Hi all! I have finally launched my own independent website for selling my hand dyed yarn and custom knit scarves:

In conjunction with that, I have decided to host my blog on that site, too. The new blog is here: I did post a Fiber Friday update there, so be sure to check it out!

I'll try keeping up with the two blogs for a bit, and probably choose one over the other. If you mind which format I stay with, be sure to let me know!

Front Page!

On a whim, I checked my hearts on Etsy today. Hmmm....that's strange, I received 11 new hearts today (I generally get 3-4, more if I've been an especially helpful girl in the forums). So I did some research. Turns out that this treasury curated by PoeticPurl was promoted to the front page today. I missed the front pagey-ness, but I did a screenshot of the treasury.

Autumn Aspens is still available in my shop!
In other news, I finally caved, and am launching my own real independant website. I'm busy loading it up now, and I will definitely announce the opening here! So, if you don't see much for new yarn, you will know why! (That, and I'm waiting on a huge yarn shipment!)
The opening of Yarny-Goodness has been delayed due to technical problems out of Pam's control, but she still plans to open soon. I have exciting news about that coming soon, too!

Well, it turns out that this week I did a bit of dyeing in pairs. Even double pairs!
These two rainbow skeins were custom hand dyed by request on Worsted Weight Peruvian Wool Yarn, 4.5-5 stitches per inch on #6-9 needles, 220 yards, 100g4 ply. I bought 10 skeins each of the worsted and bulky weights of this yarn, so expect to see them show up over the coming weeks.
To further add to my offerings of hand painted yarn in weights other than sock, I made some Tutti Fruity skeins in both Lace Weight Merino (880 yards), and Worsted Superwash Merino (270 yards). I have two of each.

And finally, remember that last time I didn't want to give up my Forest Glade Yarn? These turned out a bit more intense, but no less lovely! I give you Forest on my ever popular Superwash Merino & Nylon Sock Yarn, and on a Lopi Style Bulky Single Ply. Again, I have two skeins of each.

Thanks for stopping by, and hope the weather is nicer in your neck of the woods. We're up to here in snow and freezing fog, with thunderstorms all at the same time. Very strange. And more snow later this week!
