Winter Blend

Well, I finally got more hand dyed skeins into the shop.
Shelves empty?! No need to panic, I'll make more!
Color not quite right? There's always next time!
I'm dyeing as fast as I can...(don't say that in the doctor's office!)

I have been meaning to ask; How on earth do you keep all that thread from tangling?

You soooooo tempt me! These are lovely... I just love your thread and wish I had all of it... I plan to atleast keep one skein each of what I order from you... I dont have a reason as to why to stock them but then they are so beautiful... Your threads are worth my collection!!!!!

Thanks for the compliments and your support!
To keep threads from tangling in a skein, they need to have a short piece of thread tying them together at least every yard or so. I also try to keep them orderly as much as possible while working with them.

This is sooo not fair! Before I even receive the thread I ordered, you tempt me again! This winter blend is so cool and dreamy. It reminds me of my childhood, part of which was an aluminum Christmas tree with blue balls. You have, once again, created a beautiful thread.

Aluminum Christmas tree! One of my favorite holiday cartoons is the one where Charlie Brown goes looking for a Christmas tree!

Sorry that I keep dyeing more thread, but I have found this to be a good business venture. Maybe someday I should publish a "flavor of the day" calendar a month in advance like they do at the ice cream parlor!
