It’s a new year and I’ve decided to add some new items to the shop and be more active in blogging. This year, I’m adding hand dyed yarns and hand dyed roving to my mix of handspun yarns, which in addition to being sold online and at some Craft Fairs, are available for sale at Trumpet Hill Fine Yarns in Albany, NY. I’ve also been considering phasing out the baby blankets in the online shop and selling them solely at the craft fairs with some of the hand knit items and focus more on the fiber.
And so, without further ado, here are the first, of what I’m hoping will be many, new hand dyed yarns. Both are Fingering Weight in 90% Superwash Merino and 10% Nylon. They are approx 4 oz and approx 450 + yards.
This first one is Cherry Lemonade. It is a mix of cherry red and sunny yellow with some pink and white blending. It’s such a bright and cheery color and would make a fantastically bright pair of socks or a shawl! What a way to shake off those winter blues! Click the photo for a link to the etsy shop listing.
Speaking of blues, I’d like to introduce my favorite colorway! TEN & TARDIS. It’s inspired by the Tenth Doctor Who character, played by David Tennant. He is my favorite doctor and I can’t help but see him when I see that Tardis blue and brown together! Who wouldn’t want Doctor Who inspired socks or a lacy shawl or scarf to wear while watching your favorite Doctor Who episodes! Don’t Blink or this might disappear fast (but don’t worry, both of these colorways are repeatable!) Allons-y! Both of these are currently available on the Facebook page (just send me a PM there with your email address for a paypal invoice), and they will be listed next week in the shop (Sarandipity Handmade) if they haven’t found a forever home yet. EDIT – The TEN & TARDIS sock yarn has been sold, but this colorway is repeatable, so if you are interested, contact me here, via facebook, or through etsy and I’ll see what I can do for you. If you are a spinner, look for Finn top roving dyed in the TEN & TARDIS colorway coming soon, an possibly some handspun yarn, too! Follow me on Facebook, Twitter and the blog for updates and favorite my etsy shop if you have a spare moment.
