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!

I'm excited, because three skeins have been sold so far! Thank you to my inaugural customers—as I told one of them, I knew I loved the dyeing/creative process, but I never anticipated how excited it would be when a skein sold. Who knew?

The dyepots are gonna be smokin' tomorrow as I crank out some more stock. I'll be posting a couple of silk scarves and a woven one as well. Keep your eyes peeled for the updates...

3... 2... 1... LIFTOFF!!

Houston, we have liftoff! It took a month longer than expected, but Yarndeavors (Handpainted Fibers) is officially open for business.

Take a look around, but please ignore the dust. This is a totally new experience for me. Yes, Virginia, there has been a learning curve. The manual for the cart software is unlikely to be found anywhere near "intuitive" in the dictionary.

For now, please email me directly with orders. I'm working on getting PayPal functionality or a better credit gateway solution (read: affordable). I check my mail every day, so your order will be processed within the same amount of time and we can work out payment arrangements through PayPal or another method.

And if you're local, heck, we can just meet for coffee somewhere and make the exchange.

I don't know about you, but I'm pretty excited.
