I’m not sure if I just didn’t update here or if I deleted it. I tried to make some organizational changes here in February..and I messed up, and I don’t think I can fix it. So will just pick up here.
Here’s a few pics of things I’ve created over the last two months.
I have had the most fun making coil yarns! Check out the new listings in my shop! Have a great day!

It’s February 1rst already! I’m so glad, I am already itching for some better weather and February always means we can begin to hope! Just some more temps in the 30’s would be cause for more relaxed breathing! Br..it’s been cold and snowy. Although I do love winter.
January was a hard month for me. I lost my mojo for dying sometime in December and have been struggling to get it back since then! Adding to my month working on inventory and taxes, and the website, and lower sales..it’s been a bust. Website is slow going -even with help. My Noro scarf is down to walnut sized balls of yarn..I’ve messed up the stitch count..(was getting so excited to almost be done)..now it’s being ignored again, while I worked on other knitting projects. Some new baby hats were created. My latest was this green one and I can’t wait to improve on this and do more colors and maybe some blends.
I handspun merino thick and thin, then knit the hat and then applied the dye. You can see on the tail where the green split out to blue, and in some of my photo’s it seems to hint at more splitting, but it didn’t anywhere else, it’s just the photo’s. I did dye some more yarn green for a ball. I’ve wracked my brain for other idea’s on the tail tip, nothing has emerged as a good idea. But overall I am pleased with this first attempt and am excited to try other colors and applying more dye for an even more graduated effect.
The beginning of January I played around with knitting and felting some bowls – but apparently only specific seller’s can sell these on Etsy – and I don’t know why -
I also made some art yarns that were a lot of fun. Here’s a few that were created:
That’s a good overview of my January. WordPress is now acting wonky, so I am going to skidoddle before it completely messes up. I’m off to work on the February Fiberlicious Give Away! Have a great day!
