Happy Feet!

Hi! How are you? I feel like life is slowing in some ways but busier in others. It's nice to pop in here and take a breath! I wanted to let you know I'm taking down the Ballerina Kits and putting up Feather Weight for sale on it's own. So many great things to knit with this yarn! A nice light weight yarn to knit a quick summer project!

But have no fear! I have a really fun new kit! Happy Feet is for any of you ladies out there that need a little love for your toes!
A skein of sport weight super wash Falkland, Zig Zag Pedi Socks pattern from PDXKnitterati, and a zoya (only click on this link if you are very strong and not distracted by pretty shiny color) nail polish in a complementary color! 

There might even be enough time to knit the socks and get them ready for Mom's day.
I have limited quantities on kits including nail polish. Once they're gone I'll put up yarn and pattern kits.
Let me know if you need an extra skein, a pair of socks for you and for a mom you know!
 I super want this one for me!! I love the color and the orange goes so perfectly!
 Also, make a great gift. I'm happy to ship to some one special! Snap up a kit and get ready for summer!

Celebrate the Shop Update with a Sale!!!

I wanted to tell you all real fast what a great time I had at High Desert Wool Grower's Market. I ended up going alone and wow. So nice! I met a fantastic shepherdess and found a sheep breed that I'm smitten with.
This is Border Liecester, one of the fleeces I picked up. Yep, I got more than one! When they come back from the mill I'll show them off properly!
These sweet sheep were out side. There's another baby in the pen too. Sadly I didn't find out what the breed is. They sure look cute!

On to the shop update! And, wow! What an update! I think I only have one yarn base left to load. Below is one of my current favorites on super wash fingering. I love this watery cool color.
Oooh! And another favorite. I love these colors on the super wash fingering yarn. Warm summer day, perfect yarn!
One last fingering skein. I can't get enough of this color. I call it Gream. Creamy Green! So perfect for a shawl.
If you come out to Columbia Gorge Fiber Festival you'll see some of these yummy treats!
And you'll get to see this cute little sample! Probably not the cute boy holding the sample though : ) Isn't this the sweetest little sweater? Maria spun up the yarn and then knit this sweet little sweater. I can't believe that lady! Have you seen her bags? L-o-v-e them! Oh! I'll have some with me at CGFF too!
I want to celebrate the update and 5!! years of being in business. I don't have a specific date to celebrate so why not now?! From now until Monday night the whole shop is 20% off. Wow, that's a sale! Type in UPDATE20 to save 20%. Thank you all so much for your support and encouragement. I would not be in business with out you!
