Blog Special!
If you'd like to buy all nine skeins together as a group (they would knit together beautifully that's what I'd planned on doing with them) I'll sell you the set for 60 US Dollars plus 4.75 shipping. On Etsy they all add up to 84.03 so that's just under a 29% discount! Email me at noellenoodle @ and I'll send you a paypal bill. To keep it fair, if one of the others sell and you still want to buy what's left, I'll still give you 28.5% off. Sound good?

Oh and Winter's doing great! She's annoyed with all the pills and ointments but likes getting her pills hidden in peanut butter. It's a hard life.

Handspun added to the Etsy Shop!

I added some fresh handspun to the Etsy shop yesterday. There are a few mini skeins, some super crazy art yarn, some thick and thins, and one shiny handpainted mohair boucle that I dyed last year and just ran across in my personal stash. Something for the whole family!

I have some really great rustic handspun then dyed with natural dyes like sassafrass and cochineal that's drying on the rack today! Really cool stuff.

If you're wondering why I've been doing so much listing lately it's because our dog had to have surgery on Tuesday and I'm trying to make up some money to offset the crazy expenses from that.

So I'm clearing out my roving inventory, going through my commercial yarn to do some destashing, that kind of thing. I've got plenty to list that will help the bills out :)

She's doing fine today, clearly feels a lot better. She's turning seven next month and just had a bunch of medical issues come up at once. And now she's hypothyroid like me. Let's hear it for the hypothyroid gals!

Roving Sale on Etsy Shop!

I've put up nine new braids of handdyed roving at the Etsy shop for only 2.50 per ounce.

Usually I list my roving at 3 or 3.50 an ounce depending on the fiber but it's all 2.50 this week. That includes Finn, some BFL, and a few Corriedales.

Here are previews of the brand new ones I just listed this morning

July Roving Update on Etsy

3. Set em up joe
4. Selma
5. Quitting time blues
6. Pennyslippers
7. Lilypad
8. Hurdy Gurdy

Remember each roving is totally one of a kind, couldn't recreate it if I wanted to!

I also did a whole lot of spinning over the weekend so I'll have some handspun yarn to list as soon as it's dry. I'm guessing Wednesday.

Everyone needs it. I've sent along some motivation for the Yarnathoners at Eat. Sleep. Knit. today.


This is a special sock yarn color for Yarnathon Members only for reaching (I think it's) the 20 mile mark!

Also, my handdyed Aran weight yarn is a power boost yarn this month! So that yarn's yardage gets counted an extra 50% too!

Go Yarnathoners go!
