Had a lot of fun today with Elizabeth trying out a new crafty project that I might do for my Etsy shop. We played around with dyeing yarn and I am LOVING the results so far! The sparkly yarn is all MINE but the rest, I'm not sure yet.
The main thing was that Elizabeth had fun and so did I... And we learned something new together!
I've got the last batch in the pot cooling off, then everything needs to dry and be wound into hanks. Then, I'll really be able to see how the colors will turn out.
A little behind-the-scenes photo for this Saturday afternoon! Home from meeting up with some of the lovely folks of the #orcrochetcommunity , and checking on my yarn babies. This weather’s got them drying a little slower than usual so I’ll be pushing the shop update to Tuesday, 2/27. But that just means you get some more shop update preview photos to look at while you wait! 😊
If you’re in the Salem(ish) area, and want to come hang out and crochet (or knit, or weave, or spin, or whatever fiber-y thing you love to do) with us, head over to @crochet.by.ellen’s page and follow the link in her bio to the OR Crochet Community Facebook page! We meet once (or more?) a month to make, chat, laugh, and hang out with people that like yarn as much as we do!
#28daysofyourlys#day24#happinessis#tonight happiness is date night. We don’t do this enough. Plus it’s the first time Hubs and I have had sushi together. Maybe the next date night will include making sushi at home!
A little swatching in between winding with some scraps of Marle using 2 strands and 4mm needles and bonus... it's looking like it's going to be a DK or 8 ply tension around 22 st /10cm... love it when the yarns are multi purpose.
[Senior Pirelli] has stolen my heart! If you received the February Sweeney Todd Club colorway, make sure to take your projects with #sweeneytoddyarnclub . I’ll be randomly drawing names for prizes over the next few months!

#yarnlovechallenge Day 24: LYS
It just so happens I get to spend several hours a week at my LYS taking photos of pretty yarn and doing other fun yarn related things. I was lucky enough to snag a job as their social media/marketing chick very recently and am loving it! This is our new peg wall that our wonderful office manager Chadwick @manosteel1970 built for us, didn't he do such a great job?! The yarn just looks so good hanging there for all to see...and squish. 😘 #yarnlovechallengefeb#yarnwall#yarnporn#lys#somanypretties#twistedeweboise#socialbutterfly
