New in the shop are worsted weight mini skeins, Gobstoppers! They are 35 yards each, super wash merino, and perfect for all kinds of projects! Each set is 10 skeins for a total of 350 yards. Striped mittens are what I'm most excited to make. I found a pattern from Susan B. Anderson, written in a few sizes, and with a set of Gobstoppers I could make two pairs! Or what about this cute little skirt? The smallest size would be ridiculous in the Gal-entines Day colors! Maybe you enjoy color work? A set of the Gobstoppers if the perfect opportunity to add colors to your collection. Here are some awesome leg warmers that would work with the Treat Yourself set!

Of course, Gumballs, or fingering weight mini skeins are still happening. I just found this fun little striped cowl, I think I'll be making this with the Gal-entines Day set! How cute are these mitts for the Treat Yourself colors! Super fun!!!

Happy New Year!

Whoops! I certainly didn't mean for that much time to by! I have had my head down in the dye pots, or busy winding yarn into skeins, or busy rewinding dyed skeins into orderly skeins. Wow! I had a three day dye marathon, getting all the colors ready for TNNA. I leave at the end of January, but have a few orders, clubs, and life to live, I'm glad it's done! I think I have 50ish colors that I'm taking. I know. Crazy! I have almost all of them up on Flickr. I ran out of day light and might have to reshoot a few. Nothing like a grey winter day and trying to take accurate color pictures of yarn!

I also have all the colors, expect for the surprise variegated ones, ready for the Gal-entines Day mini skein sampler. Have you heard of Gal-entines day? Its celebrated February 13th, and it's all about ladies and their girlfriends. It's from Parks & Rec if it sounds familiar!

What have you been up to? What are some of your goals for 2013? I've been working through a few different work books, planning for a successful 2013. It feels great to take the time to make a plan! One of my goals was spinning and or knitting for 20 minutes every day. I'm off to make that happen!
