Shop Update! Hats and Yarn!!

Forgive me bloggers... for I have sinned. It has be too long since my last blogfession. OMG!!! What a freakin' month it has been! I tell ya, the weather has me ever so crazy right now. But, I truly believe the fog has lifted! So much going on right now... we started tearing out the walls and doing some MAJOR renovations on Ye Olde Pumpkinhaus. Not pretty right now, but oh so needed (I'll share some pics really soon)! We are growing out of this little haus, and it is time to make some changes! Swappin' rooms, moving the bathroom, biggifying the kitchen... not to mention the garage! Long summer ahead, I just hope we can keep up the pace!
I have added some hand dyed yarn and a new style hat to the shop. When exactly did I make these? I dunno... it was all a blur...

Super cute and puffy. Little Miss Muffet! Two variations on this little sweetie hittin' the shop soon!

Out of the Dyepot!

I spent the last two days in a fiber dying frenzy! This is the first I've been able to get to it this year... we have so much going on right now.

So, there is about a couple pounds of painted roving and 6 or 7 skeins of yarn total. I will be doing much, much more of this soon and offering it in my shop... as well as my own handspun yarn! I am getting a drum carder here in the next couple of weeks... I am so excited! Art yarn a go-go! You will be able to find all of this in my shop in the Pumpkinspun section around mid April.

Corriedale roving and a skein of Lamb's Pride bulky in the roaster. I used Kool Aid for the first round, I had Rowan helping me out, and food grade dyes are considered non-toxic. There is a lovely, lingering lemon scent to these right now! Rowan is always remarking about how we never actually drink the stuff... seriously, if it dyes wool colorfast, imagine your insides!

These are more skeins of Lamb's Pride in both bulky and worsted weight. I used an ikat tying dying method on these... it really turned out awesome.

Pretty soon, we will be converting the garage to a full time studio... I cannot contain my joy about this! We are so incredibly squeezed in our little house right now... we have also started the renovations on the inside of the house (I will share some pictures soon), We tore out the wall between the library and Rowans room last week. Whew... more later!
