I’m dyeing lots of pretty colours for custom orders, so I’m taking a few pictures of them while they’re around! Here’s Alpha and Nymphe in the Ver Luisant base (50% merino 50% silk). How gorgeous are they together?

Selkie - Halfway There

Selkie – Halfway There

I’m exactly halfway through my Selkie (pattern link).

IMG_20140305_102324

How do I know I’m halfway? Well, I have two skeins of yarn and one is completely gone. Selkieis one of those patterns that’s easily customizable in the length of the pattern. Orinally, one was only supposed to do 3 repeats of the back cable. But that’s with a bulky yarn. I’m not using a bulky yarn. I’m using a yarn that’s listed as bulky buy…

A small announcement

getmeawayfromhereimdyeing:

As some of you may know, I’ve been planning on opening up an Etsy shop to sell my yarns for some time and today is the day it officially opens!

image

Great Woolly Owl is the name of the shop and you can find it here. There are a small amount of skeins available at the moment, with an update next week.

image

There are currently three bases in the shop (with several more coming in the near future):

Athena - 100% high twist superwash merino 4ply, 365m per 100g

Aphrodite - 50% suri alpaca, 50% merino 4 ply, 300m per 100g

Artemis - 75% superwash BFL, 25% nylon, 425m per 100g

image

We are on Facebook and you can follow us on Twitter @greatwoollyowl, although I’m still getting the hang of this social media thing - it’s so much easier to just put a pretty picture up on Tumblr than actually have to write something.

Knitters! CHECK THIS OUT
This organization has a rehab center in Australia for penguins that need care after an oil spill. The little sweaters keep them warm and help keep them from trying to clean the toxic oil off their feathers.
So…got some extra yarn lying around? Want to help out adorable animals? Your skills can help save lives! How cool is that :)
