my first Mutnomah!

I finished and blocked my first Multnomah shawlette and am very happy with the results. Although I wish I had used bigger needles so that the final result was bigger. Next time, next time...

pattern: Multnomah
needles: size 3
yarn: 1 skein wabi sabi yarns Tallulah Sock
12 repeats
finished size: 44" x 16"

I was *really* burning out by the end of the pattern and just wanted to get it over with, but now I want to knit another! But I think I'll knit an Aestlight first. I have a hot pink yarn just in mind for it. :D

Limited edition CUSTOM Holiday Fiber Club

Hi everyone!!! Please forgive me for my lack of updates recently. Between focusing on necessary home improvements (danger of the deck collapsing) and branding a new YARN LINE to be sold at retail stores, I haven't been able to be in the dye pots as much as I would like. So I wanted to offer something very special to my loyal customers. A CUSTOM COLOR FIBER CLUB, just for the holidays! The fiber offered will be extra special as I LOVE it so. It will be 6 ounces of the finest Targhee combed top with an average staple length of 4 inches, super soft and bouncy with an approximate micron count of 22. Really amazingly lovely stuff.

You will have a choice of three colorways. Each colorway will be built around one predominant color. Red (a), Violet (b) or Teal (c). These are approximate swatches and please understand that not all monitors depict color the same way. You will have your choice of three primary colors. Each colorway will be built around one predominant custom color. Red (a, top), Violet (b, middle) or Teal (c, bottom). These are approximate swatches and please understand that not all monitors depict color the same way. Once you pick your choice of a main color I will contact you within the coming weeks to work with you on creating your TRUE CUSTOM COLORWAY. We'll talk about other colors you would like to incorporate, depth of shade, etc. This fiber will truly be one of a kind, created just for you alone.

Each fiber will be gift wrapped and include a mini sample skein of my new yarn line, debuting over the holiday season. U.S. shipping will be by Priority Mail to ensure that you receive your holiday fiber the week of December 14th. Space is limited, so lock in your spot while you can! Spaces for this custom holiday club will be opening on my Etsy shop throughout the day and are $28 a spot. If you would like a double or triple helping please contact me and I will create a special listing for you.

Thank you and happy holidays!!!! ~Lisa

Introducing Crash Test Colorways!

Hi everyone,

Well, I’ve been absent for a while while I was awaiting a precision scale and other supplies so that I can now write down formulas in order to repeat colorways. I am in the process of creating a permanent collection of colorways which will be loaded to the store on a regular basis and capable of being repeated.

While I determine which colorways will be permanent, I will be doing a bunch of testing. The test rovings will be offered in my Etsy store as “Crash Test Colorways”, only available in that one Etsy posting as it was a test colorway. Along the way, if any colorways really speak to you, please post here to let me know. I will consider reproducing the most popular ones. :)

BTW, Miss Poppy Flower is doing very well these days. Not up to 100%, but at least to 95% :D.
