Well, It's been a busy couple weeks, in spite of being out of school still. I have just about 2 weeks left of break. I'll be at the county fair a little bit this week, and Saturday I was at Lambtown. For some pictures see the NCAG blog. I didn't get any pictures of what I bought, but I've already been enjoying it. I got some pretty romney roving, it's blended in shades of peach and lavender with a touch of blue, a baby alpaca fleece, and some blended fiber batts. The alpaca may find it's way into my shop in either batt or yarn form.....

The sorting hat says that I belong in Gryffindor!

Said Gryffindor, "We'll teach all those with brave deeds to their name."

Students of Gryffindor are typically brave, daring, and chivalrous.
Famous members include Harry, Ron, Hermione, Albus Dumbledore (head of Hogwarts), and Minerva McGonagall (head of Gryffindor).

Take the most scientific Harry Potter
ever created.

Get Sorted Now!

Ravenclaw came in second. I'm not surprised.

I've been crazily dying new yarn lately. (well and a trip to Disneyland in the middle.)

I placed a big order for blank yarn and got some new types, a superwash nylon/wool


A merino tencel blend, so shinny!


A bamboo blend that I haven't dyed yet, and of course I dyed a bunch of yarn that I had here and hadn't gotten around to dyeing.


These yarns are all available at

In other news, I've been kinda working on mystery stole 3 in deep purple zephyr. I should get more work done on it, but it will come together eventually!

Okay, so I've been bad at posting on any blog...... Here's what I've been up to- lots of socks, some canning, dyeing and the critters. Of course that's what I'm often up to anyway.

Here is the results of a case of peaches, a few other ingredients and a couple days of canning.....

Next a couple pairs of socks I have finished in the last couple months.

First of all some panda cotton hederas.
