 Hello everyone, welcome to November! In your boxes this month you have this fun and festive wool/acrylic/polyamide blend, with lots of bright spots of color on a neutral background. I'm thinking great for loosely woven scarves - to give as gifts or wear to holiday par...

So this month I sent out the fabulous "fireworks" hand dyed yarn, and I wanted to share a bit about how it was done!

I was uploading the May 2018 insert to the website, when I happened to look over at the blog....the poor, sad, neglected blog. I realized I had not updated it in MONTHS, which is, really, inexcusable.
