Sorry neglected blog. I have been focusing on the Farm Blog but I just updated that one and needed a place to post this picture for Ravelry. I would love if you would follow me over there ;)
All the fiber club packages are packed and very nearly ready to send out! I am so excited!
Just in case you are interested there is a new soap in the Farm Store.
and a bit of Jacob in The Etsy Store….
not to mention the new Alpaca/Cormo/Silk blend :)
I love doing Fiber Shows…yet…they really suck up a lot of time! I am looking forward to knitting just because I want to, not because I have to get a sample done for the booth.
I did manage to get two projects finished though:
The shawl was knitted using my Brown Trout colorway. I should completely out before the shawl was even finished :)
My lovely October Leaves Fingerless Mitts, knit out of my African Plains colorway.
Another lovely envelope came in the mail the other day. I have Minions!!!
I will at least have soap! This soap has my favorite scent so far. It is manly yet still soft enough for a woman. It will be listed in the Farm Store soon.
This is a rebatch of some soap that didn’t hold it’s scent after curing. I am all about the smellies :) I can’t wait to see how it will look after it’s unmolded. I decided to try layering colors for effect.
This beautiful disaster will have to be rebatched also I am afraid. Failure to plan = failed soap :( I didn’t check to be sure I had enough lye and ended up two ounces short. I thought I would practice swirling and as is life it looks pretty great. Too bad I have to re-do.
I finished up some custom dye orders this weekend (fitting for labor day wouldn’t you say?)
And now I am busy updating the farm store :)
Sorry I haven’t been blogging regularly :( I have been crafting like crazy though!
I have been working on new colorways and trying out new yarn bases.
I spent a couple of days working on old and new soap recipes and even tried my hand at hand-milled soap.
I have fulled a bag that I knitted up, now I just need to add the embellishments.
Spun up some yarn…
and nearly finished a pair of fingerless mitts I had been working on.
