It's been awhile . . . but here are some new yarns!

I am so bad at keeping up with the blogging thing. I try, really, I do. I spin and think of the things I want to write, but then when I sit down to write them, they are gone, or don't seem important enough to post. Oh well. Here is one of my usual new-yarn posts . . .

First, is a new art yarn, another in what I'm calling my "Masquerade" series, this one, simply "Masquerade II", spun from hand dyed merino wool, dyed by the Yarn Wench. I have two skeins listed in my etsy shop, an 86 yard skein and a 76 yard skein -

And, another one, spun from merino wool hand dyed by Cloudlover - this one is called Telltale Heart and I also have two skeins - 88 yards and 84 yards -

And, finally, here are two of my all-time favorite colorways, merino wool and merino/silk hand dyed by the Yarn Wench in "Andromeda" and "Mahogany Peacock". These are all listed in my etsy shop as well (direct links below the picture) -

Navajo 3-ply - Mahogany Peacock - 100 yards
Squish-tastic - Mahogany Peacock - 70 yards
Squish-tastic - Mahogany Peacock - 25 yards
Navajo 3-ply - Andromeda - 100 yards
Squish-tastic - Andromeda - 105 yards

And, one more, this one spun from merino wool and silk blend also dyed by Cloudlover - a Navajo 3ply - 190 yards - in color Peppermint Twist -

That's all for now! Time to get back to spinning! :)

New yarns!

These are some yarns I listed this past Sunday! Two new single ply yarns - Telltale Heart and Nevermore, an art yarn called LOCHNESS, another art yarn called "Watermelon Sushi", a Squish-tastic! "Turquoise Sands" and a Navajo 3ply, also called Turquoise Sands. The singles are spun from Falkland wool dyed by Cloudlover, Lochness is a Spontaneous Spinning Batt from LOOP, Watermelon Sushi is merino dyed by Cloudlover. The Squish-tastic is merino dyed by the Yarn Wench, and finally, the 3ply is merino/bamboo blend also dyed by Cloudlover.

I know my blog has been very neglected lately, but I've been busy with non-fibery things (unfortunately), though I have been spinning and getting ready for Wisconsin Sheep & Wool, which is coming up soon! I'll have NEW YARNS, BAMBOO YARNS AND FIBER, and also novelty yarn fiber packs perfect for your fiber art projects, scrapbooking, spinning or . . . whatever you'd like! I may try and have some new knits, too! I'll still be listing yarns here and there before then, but I should pick up the pace as far as new listings on etsy go AFTER the show.

Also, I have listed the remaining fiber and yarn destash in my Kitty Grrlz Knits shop. You can find the FIBER DESTASH here, and the YARN DESTASH here!

That's all for tonight! :)
