CREATIVE

As I move along in the creative field of soft wools an color...I challenge myself to grow. Ashley Martineau of How To Spin Yarn (formerly Neaveau Fibers) suggested I build a new website. I dug my heels in, and said NO. No? What the heck. A few months later, this website happened. Growing is good. It's a way to discover.

As I craft, and fall into following my dharma; I realize we get stuck in patterns. Like how I'm stuck in shawl knitting mode. I look lustfully at socks, although being a Teva wearing girl, I don't wear them much. Even in Winter. I told myself last year was the year. That I was finally going to knit them. And then I didn't. So I decided, why stress over it. If it's something I really want to do, I will get around to it. Meanwhile, I am always making. Whether it be digging a new garden bed, or dyeing up several skeins of yarns. I'm happiest, when my hands are full of a project. This is probably why, I am not the most social person! It's about making. The excitement to see if I can pull it off. Or if I can discover a new color-like the seaglass neon green, I stumbled upon last week. So, I decided to be more organic about my goals. To not make huge lists of things I want to do. Because I think socks might just happen this year. I just need to focus...and slow down from chasing the dye rainbow.

I even started dyeing sock yarns to inspire myself! These colors, are listed with several skeins available.

New colorways:
