Dancing Princess

Hi Kiddies, so happy to pop in and let you know that Dancing Princess is finally open, sqweeee! I know a lot of you have been waiting for this shawl. It's going to be the largest shawl of the year, perfect for all ya'll who love to snuggle... you'll be inviting others to join you come fall. Speaking of which, tell all your friends, the more the merrier.


This shawls a split circular of cables and lace, who's color sense will play to the designer/artsy girl in everyone. We have an Old Friendish color but you can choose any color your heart desires. We will work with you until the palette is just right, making suggestions, adding and subtracting until we have something which will be very pleasing in the end. Lately we've been doing a great deal of Meldy Deep with an added glacĂ© ... totally amazing, adds depth, saturation, highs and lows, you can see the outcome on our FB page in the video before the great mountain of yarn.

Fae Yarn Club 3rd Quarter is CLOSING this week, hurry and get your slot.

Tour and Yaaarn

WOW so we have been SUPER busy this week and it's only Tuesday. Pixie #1 is leaving for a week, so it was time to do the hustle.

First lets talk Tour Dr France. Every year we like to congregate on Ravelry for TourDe Fleece, while they pedal, we pedal from the safety of our living/craft/studio room's. This year we'd like to offer up free Tour packs for everyone in the USA... something along these lines for the color. Click here to order your pack. These need to ship solo, please don't add anything else to your order.

This is the wholesale order and what 300 skeins looks like.  That batch was processed on Monday. 
Gee, come to think on it, some of them dried overnight and were removed from the drying box. This is not a full 300 skeins but you get the idea. There had been another pole across the 
center of the fencing. 

Today was the last day we could dye together so we started at 9am and made a good press on these 150 ish skeins. 


Here in the following photos you can see the Christmas Club and 
Tuscany bags. It's all dyed and will be ready to ship here soon.  I left the club open as we dyed WAY too much yarn, what else is new? After we fill the orders the remaining yarn will be posted on the Twist page so ya'll can have a crack at it.
It was great when DD popped up and said, gee I'm having a great time. Ahhh totally amazing to hear. Normally we've been in our own world with earbuds in, today my Bose made an appearance and we had fun. Her friends going to be here in short order to wisk her away.

Quick Update
The 4th Quarter Fae Yarn Club is open but will be closing at the end of this month.

Little Mermaid has shipped but there's still time to get into this MKAL before it begins.

Tuscany Silk Bag has been dyed and there's still time to get into this one. Not a mystery but we are going to KAL it on Rav.

Evil Queen KAL has begun, yarn is still available.

2018 blanket, we still have a small amount of the yarn used for this one. It will begin end of this month.

Mystery Fiber Box, all three of them are open, Fine, Medium and Long wools. This page will disappear shortly not to be returned as we begin to head towards something new.

Finished Object contest is closing on 6-30, go sign up. It's super easy, just as easy as loading a photo. There are 3 prizes and few people enter so your chance of winning is super high.

Upcoming 

  • Flirtatious Foxy scarf/neck warmer, pattern and kits will be available.
  • Next MKAL Dancing Princess with 8.5 skeins of Imp Sock WOW!
  • Following MKAL will be Sleeping Beauty 2600 yds fine lace, need TKERs, PM me if interested.
Enough! If you made it down here, congratulations. Enjoy your knitting.

What!? She's still going? Yuppers you betcha... but change of venue... a bit of an embroidery natter. Really didn't think this was going to be my cupa but here we are. Feel head over heels for bead embroidery, this is a headband before it was finished. All the purple has been covered now. Just need to finish the edging now.

Also fell for crewel and hand embroidery.
And made a keen bag like a crazy quilt but with beads. I'll be doing a video of this bag here shortly cause it's just full of fun stuff and needs much more elaboration.

Ok, now I'm done. :-) Well, it's over I'm not finished sharing that will end eventually but will be done over on FB instead.

Tuscany

Just quickly needed to let ya'll know that the third quarter Fae Yarn Club is now open, come join the fun. Still in the year of the Grimm, it's flowing over to our dyeing for this club. All of the club colors are special for the club, they are non-repeatable, exclusive only for club members. If you want to sign up for two of the same base, PM me for an invoice. At times our members have wanted a second skein and even they can't get one. :-)

Time to head on out to Italy, to a lovely vineyard with the
sun setting off of in the distance. We give you Tuscany a beaded silk bag.
Straying a bit from our Grimm tales we are going to make a beaded silk bag. This time it's not a mystery as we are working it up in the Ravelry group and as I swatch and fiddle with the pattern you all will be getting your kits in. By the time ya'll have your kits we will have the pattern completed and ready for ya'll to KAL together in our Rav group. Come out and play.

Silk Bag


Teese Cowl











On the left you can see the lovely metal frame we choose to top our bag with. The color shown is called Tuscany.

LOVE the color for the Teesewater lock cowl. We will be making up kits in advance for you to choose from based on your color requests at the time of order. You can then say yea or nay and we will dye it up again. We have an entire fleece coming in next week for this one.

Both of these patterns and kits will be available shortly.

There's so much going on, probably more then we've ever had going at once. Feel free to join any and all KAL's in whatever state they are currently in. We are beginning to dye Little Mermaid this week and Evil Queen's first clue was just published.

2018 Blanket, Mystery Fiber Box Fine and Snow

Got time for a quick update? So do I - wanted to pop in and let you know that we are all green lights for the 2018 sampler blanket which is named Innisfree. An amazing Celtic Braid inspired blanket. The Theme is a poem and movie, hop on over to the page and check it out.

Mystery Fiber Box
Our Raw fiber boxes have been very well received. Now you have Fine Breeds available, just got in a massive Rambo fleece just for this box. Here you'll find the fine micron breeds we have in stock, Arapawa (rare), California Varigated Mutant/Romaldale, Merino & Rambo BFL, blends and other fine breeds. We might include blanket alpaca, baby camel, cashmere and the like. Micron counts of about 17-21. If you'd like to get 2 of the different boxes, pm me for an invoice as the shipping is only $25 for two.

Next week we will be opening Little Mermaid, our least expensive KAL of the year. She's just a skein of sock and a bit of lace which knits up very fast. For those of you who love our larger shawls we are working it up in Fairy Deluxe as well.
