This blog, as well as my business, must be revived.

There must be yarn dyed and sold. There must be fabric dyed and sold. There must be items designed and sold.

This dearth cannot continue.


I command thee.

And it is so.

Just claiming my blog in Bloglovin feed reader, since Google Reader is going away.

Yarndeavors still exists; I'm embarrassingly low on stock, though. But there will be yarn again.

Yarndeavors is International!

Just a brief update.

  1. It's official—Yarndeavors is international. A very large shipment, including a couple of custom skeins, went to Australia, and another skein is enjoying the ambiance of Japan.
  2. The Yarndeavors domain name remains intact, but the site hosted there is coming down as all sales have been moved to Etsy. I've been busy tonight relocating the important data over here on the blog and interconnecting the Facebook Fan Page, the Etsy Shop, and Ravelry. (Everything is linked to the right under Pages.)
  3. The dye pots have been resting but expect to see new skeins appearing soon.

Fall is here, cool weather approaches, and it's time to think Holiday Knitting. A skein of Alizarin sock yarn/fingering weight would make a lovely shawl for a holiday party, and a silk scarf would be welcome under any tree.

The refreshed Yarndeavors site is back up and running now. The Shop link now goes to Etsy. This should discourage any h a c k e r s  from attacking me again.

New yarns coming soon. Stay tuned. Meanwhile, visit the Etsy shop, and "like" the Facebook page.

My apologies to anyone who tried to visit the shop. No wonder the orders have been scant. Some idiot hacked me. I typed in my URL to get a nasty photo and the words "YOU ARE HACKED BY SAYMAN SECURITY 0%"

Not only that, but MY ZENCART IS GONE. He deleted MY ENTIRE SHOP. All the yarn, all the photos, EVERYTHING. Just a 404 not found.

I'm currently working on fixing this. Don't know HOW he got in. I am ABSOLUTELY SICK INSIDE.

Family-friendly blog prohibits me from saying what I really feel like saying.

Still Breathing

It's been slow around the dyepots—until this takes off, I need fundage, so I'm in the job-hunting mode. However, there have been a few skeins dyed. They'll be up soon.

I test-drove the process of dyeing duplicate skeins to see if I can pull it off (I can!). I'm thinking I'd like to overdye at least one of them to play with a more neutral palette. But I'd like to leave it open; watch this space. I'll post a photo of the Skein in Question and a poll, and you can vote on it!

Sound good?

Happy May!

Scarves and New Yarn Are Up

New for spring: silk scarves! Two one-of-a-kind scarves created during a recent surface design class using ProCion™ fiber-reactive dyes are now available in the shop:



In addition is the first of a line of woven scarves:


And the new yarn—I was having my blue period, I think!
