The Yarnarian Surfaces Again.

I've been busy but with what, I can't say. General hustle and bustle. OK, with a lot of knitting and frogging. Story later on in this post.

But yesterday I did a bit of dyeing. And while most of the yarns are reserved for the Flower Fairies Sock Club, I did do a teensy bit of other dyeing. I need to rev up my Etsy shop; I've been neglecting it for a while, and nobody is looking much any more. So, I have to get my act together (as much as I can ever do that).

Gillyflower:




Green Valley:




Rainbow Tangerine:




Primavera:




Snow Drops:




Tigerlily:




Virag:



If you want any yarn, email me at fritzL234 AT yahoo DOT com. Otherwise, wait until it appears in my shop. http://fritzl.etsy.com

Knitting news: This has been a week of woe is me and yes, I have it!

I started a shawl in a new format for me, one that's been around forever, but a shaping I've not really played with. So, OK, that's fine. Except I frogged 2 attempts at this brilliant shawl and finally decided that it was not going to work. I know I've tried this before many years ago, and it didn't work then. So why I thought it would be good now? Ah well.

But I am working on what just might be very nice. Or not. We shall see. I am at the edging part, and of course am worrying that I won't have enough yarn. That's normal for me. Worrying. Not the I don't have enough yarn part. Also I'm not sure how well it will lay on my shoulders, and that's my primary consideration. I do love all triangular shawls, but I'm very fussy about which one lays the best. So we shall see, and in the meantime, I've really been enjoying playing with this. Pics? Not yet.

Gilly Flower is grabbed by my favorite shark, and she knows who she is.

What do you mean, you can't say? What are you.. a spy, CIA? Top secret?
No, I know how that goes, you get busy and before you know it a week has past before your eyes.

Gorgeous colors as usual!

Ok, that made me laugh!

They are so good!
Are the Rainbow Tangerine and Primavera avalable? If yes - I want them.

glad things are settling down a bit and you've been able to get back to the dyepot.
