Busy Week

I am a bit late posting my Favorite things on Etsy this week.  It has been busy around here.  Michael is sick, poor guy.  He picked up the bug that is going around, so I am trying to take care of him and avoid those germs.  I got 3 bins of yarn sorted, some yarn spun, Made some felted circular  needle holders for me and set about 10 skeins of handspun yarn for the shop.  Just waiting for it to dry.  Hope you all had a good week.

Here we go:

DPN Sock Cozies

I love these DPN cozies. I don't use DPN too much anymore, but I do for the tops of hats, sweater cuffs, etc. I was tired of them always falling out when I put them down, or poking my bag.

So when I saw these darling finger puppets the light went on! Besides, it gave me a good reason to buy some toys! That is always a good thing in my book.

They will hold quite a few needles at a time so they could be used for storage too!

Hand Dyed & Hand Spun Wool and Alpaca Yarn - Tyrian - $39.99

This is one of my new yarns I recently spun. I love dying up the fleeces and blending the wool on my carder and seeing how it will all turn out. I am never really quite sure until I get to the spinning!

Due to the fact that it is hand spun the thickness and twist of this yarn vary slightly throughout the skein. I do my best not to have knots, but there occasionally a join in the yarn.

There is enough yarn here for a small sweater, shrug, cowl, a scarf, hat, neck warmer, wrist warmers, etc. This wool is 100% felt-able wool/alpaca

Fibers: Wool & Alpaca
WPI: 13
Size: Light Worsted
Yardage: 306 Yards total
Weight: 4.5 oz
Gauge: 5 Stitches Per Inch
Needle size: 8
Washing Instructions: Hand wash, lay flat to dry

Hand Painted Cotton Yarn 500 Yards - Circus

This yarn has been hand painted with love by me. When I dye this type of yarn, I crochet or knit multiple strands together before dying. This allows me to make a batch or lot of skeins that match up. No more fraternal items.

There is enough yarn here for a scarf, towel, dishclothes, hat, neck warmer, wrist warmers, etc. This cotton has been processed with hot water and steamed. It should not shrink. The dyes will fade if the yarn is bleached, so if you are going to make kitchen items and want to preserve the color, instead of bleach I suggest you add some vinegar to the hot/warm wash water.

My Hubby really loves the dish clothes I made him out of this cotton! So I keep him stocked up....I will do whatever it takes to get out of doing dishes! lol
