Breathe. Spin.

Three weeks of mad dyeing all done! Now, I can enjoy Rachel, Peter and Amelia’s visit.. they arrived yesterday and are staying until Monday. She is just so, so cute – I can’t wait to show you some pictures after the weekend!

The past few weeks have had a few finished knits, which I will also show you soon. But for now, a little bit of spinning to catch up with –


I spun up a little 1.2 ounce leftover piece of my Sunshine Yarns SW Merino Roving in the Smoke colorway. I loved this colorway and needed to spin up some for Scott. I only have 76 yards of worsted weight, so I will have to stripe it with maybe some black for a hat.


A few weeks ago I pulled out a little 1 ounce sample that was part of the Be Mice Elf Wildflowers Collection. It was late and I was tired. I quickly became frustrated and rushed through this mini piece. But, its still sweet and will make a nice baby hat. I have about 61 yards of sport/dk weight yarn in the Marigolds colorway.

Also, some very cool things are going on in the Sunshine Yarnies group on Ravelry. A wonderful customer of mine (cabinfour on Ravelry) has started a Spring KAL (knit-along). You can head to the group to see all the details, but the general idea is that you begin and knit a project using any Sunshine Yarns yarn in the month of April. As long as you post a finished project picture to the KAL thread by May 1st you are entered in a contest to win some prizes! Its fun and easy-going and the thread is a great way to be involved with Ravelry! I am joining in with the KAL and started up a new project today. You’ll have to go to the group to check it out in the meantime.

Will be back soon!
