Just a quick update to say that the Destination Yarn Etsy shop is up and running again! I’m a bit low on inventory after an extremely successful show at River Colors but I listed what I have left. There’s still some delicious yarn to be had. Including for the first time on Etsy both new travel experiences:
Day at the Spa:
And Surfing Lesson:
Also there is one skein of Chartes Cathedral – I know a few of you were interested in that! I’ve got a huge dye day planned for later this week so hopefully next week’s update will be more fun.
In other news this update is late b/c I spent the evening attempting to recreate her favorite sparkly skirt:

Yeah. Sewing with knit fabric? COMPLETELY DIFFERENT than sewing with woven. I kindof knew it would be but the string of cursing that this project has elicited makes me happy that my child was in bed before I attempted it. Also I probably shouldn’t have been surprised when the cheap fabric I was working with melted the second I plugged in the iron. I’ve given up the dream for now but they can’t all be successes. This is a learning process.
