Recent Bits And Bobs!

Hey!  It’s been a while since my last blog. No excuse, I’m just a bad blogger!   So what have I been up to lately?  Well,  I’ve been designing! I spent a long time secretly working away on a scarf pattern. I didn’t mention it, because whenever I do say these things publicly; I never get…

My Week! Adventures In Solar Dyeing and An Etsy Update!

This week has been a scorcher, and with the sun comes a valuable heat source which a lot of dyers look forward to! When dyeing protein fibres, one of the elements needed is heat, and utilising the sun is a massive time saver! I almost exclusively kettle dye my yarn. With a 4 ring gas…

Quick catch up!! 

If you don’t follow my Instagram, here’s a catch up of what I’ve been up to in the last week or so. I’ve been pretty multicraftual. So I ran out of citric acid. It was a nightmare. The only vinegar they sell in the village is that brown stuff you put on your chips. And…

What a week!!

No, this isn’t a Free Friday blog post, but I may do one of those this evening! I’ve had a super busy week, because the Easter holidays start next week. Having a small person around is like shoveling snow in a blizzard! So dyeing will be limited for two weeks. With that in mind, I’ve…

Mother’s Day Yarn Club Reveal

Hello! I hope you all had an excellent mother’s day? It’s time to reveal what people got in their mother’s day yarn packages!! I went into this thinking “Urgh, not another flowery mother’s day!”. This time of year is generally very pastel and washed out. Spring brings Easter and duckling yellows, light pinks and powder…

One Skein Wonder Favourites Feb!

Last year I was horrendous at taking photos of One Skein Wonder yarn club! So I am making more of an effort this year. This post is simply a bunch of photos of my favourites from the month of February. The yarn club is fully customisable and you can sign up for one or all…

The Price Of Our Work….

I’m sure a lot of my customers are in the handmade business. If you aren’t, you still understand the time and talent that goes into crafts. Yarn dyeing is no different, and I thought I’d take some time to write a little bit about why “we” charge what we do (whether it be yarn, clothing,…

A Pointless Interview with Lindsay!!

I’ve run out of ideas for blog posts between reveal blogs, and so I decided to ask other people some burning questions!! (OK, they’re not so burning, more like silly). So, without any further ado, I give you Lindsay of Dye Candy fame, and her wonderfully interesting answers to my ridiculous questions!! I hope this keeps you…

A few customer projects from Rav.

I love seeing what people have made with my yarn. When I am labelling the yarn, packaging it up, and posting it off to it’s new home, I often imagine what it would look like worked up and what it will become. I often don’t get to see how it turns out, as a lot…

Personal Stash/Yarny Friends

I’m having another high anxiety day, and so I decided to have some stash therapy to help relax my beating heart.  This doesn’t include my Pollyorange stash, which is caked and in a wip bag being turned into a Tunisian crochet blanket. I think I now have a good KG of PO yarn! I used to get…
