Vacation=Blogcation=Etsy Shop!

Yep, it all happened in that order.  I was going to blog about my vacation, but it’s severely lacking in excitement compared to opening up my Etsy Shop!  Holy crapola batman!  I finally did it!  Please let me know what you think ya’ll.  Seriously.  Because I love you, if you decide to purchase a skein, please let me know in your purchase that you saw me mention the shop on my blog and I’ll give you 10% off.

Special thank you to our Opal for designing my banner.  She did such a good job, and I love her for it.  I seriously hope you guys like my creations.  If you have any special requests, let me know!

I also finished my Haruni!  Yay!  This was an awesome knit, and I will definitely make one again!  I will say that it was a definite nail biter at the end though..  Apparently you are supposed to use up nearly half of your yarn on the final chart.  Which is very true.  And I had 9 grams remaining.  I was scared.  I had combed through the stash to find an acceptable yarn to bind off with, or, worst case scenario, re-knit Chart B with.  Thank god, I did not have to use any additional yarn.

I will say though, that this would be a great shawl to use two colors on, as the lace patterns are so dramatically different.  Daniele is using two colors, and I can’t wait to see her end result!

Check out my army of pins!  It’s a shame they can’t march -or- stand up straight.  Very little discipline around here, as you can see.

Yeah, I had to dip into the sewing pins in order to block this beautiful lady out.

Oh and I spun some over the weekend, too.

(I don’t know what’s going on!  I’m loosing my mind, sure enough..)

These pretties are part of an Enchanted Knoll Happy Hooves Club shipment – 3 oz of falkland roving, 3 oz of a matchy-matchy batt.  Here’s the roving!

They look so similar when they are all arranged in their little puffs, don’t they?  I love spinning like this every once in a while.  I just turn the music up and let the fiber do what it wants!  Normally I am ridiculously methodical in my planning and execution, which is good, but some times we just need to let go and let things take their course.  I can’t even begin to tell you how free I felt after I did this.  I’m completely surprised you guys didn’t see me running naked through the streets of Fayetteville.

/shudder.

God, I even scare myself.

Happy Monday people!  Don’t forget to buy some yarn!

    *averting my eyes* hehehe, you spinning with no “plan” what’s the world coming too! Yay for the Etsy store

  • Daniele

    OMGoodness! The Haruni is soooooo beautiful! I have those exact pins, and I’m sure my Haruni will be blocked in the same way!! Can you believe how fast of a knit this is?? Although I still need to bind off though. Did you use two strands of yarn together to do the crochet bind-off like the pattern calls for?

    More gushing coming….. Can I just say that your spinning is so lovely! Almost everything you spin anymore I fall in love with.

    I’m going to go look at your shop now, and I’m sure that I will want to kill myself later…… just remember it’s your fault.
