Hey hey, my friends, and welcome to August. Is the summer going to start winding down now? After THREE broken air conditioners, and a dog that almost died of heat stroke, I think maybe I’m ready now. As much as I love me some summer, here in South Carolina it really does seem to drag on and on. A fresh breeze would be nice… I’m ready to play with some cashmere!
Just as a reminder in case you were unaware, if you’ll look at the to menu of this website, you’ll see a page tab called “LYS.” This is the page for shop news. If you want to see what new yarns have come in, which events we’ve got coming up, and if there are any sales going on, this is the place to be.
We are ready to get our skirts on and head on down the catwalk. If you participated in our Summer Skirt-along, you’ve got until Saturday, August 7 to get your skirt finished up and ready to wear because we are going to have a blast!
Come on into the shop at 2pm on August 7, wearing your skirt, and show off what you’ve done. We’ll turn on some music and strut across the stage, live on facebook and with a “live studio audience.” I’ll make us a cool beverage (I’m thinking maybe iced blueberry green tea with honey?) and each participant will be entered into a drawing for a gift set. All are welcome to come watch!
My eBook release date is getting closer and closer, and I just can’t wait to share. All four of my patterns are written, all samples are finished and have been photographed by Knotions (just look OMG ♥ ) and I will start working on my bio blurb and short tutorial write-up shortly.
I want to thank Jody for all that’s done in helping me find my footing with this, and especially for taking a chance on a lesser-known designer for THE WHOLE BOOK! I still can barely believe it. This has been such a valuable learning process, and I could not be more thankful.

Dad’s Textured Scarf
Sometimes it’s hard to crochet for a guy. My dad loves my work, and has become a lover of yarn as well (hanging out in a yarn shop will do that to ya, I hear.) He asks for scarves, but I don’t want to keep making the same one or two patterns over and over and over. So I’ve decided to write a few, just for him 🙂 This scarf turned out just right: textured for interest, but not lacy or full of shells or picots. Plain enough to be masculine, but still soft and beautiful, and fun to make!
Hook/Needles for Hire
Did you know I have a facebook group dedicated to commission work? Four times a year, I list a “Specials & Customs” event in the group where you can place an order with me to make you something. The “specials” are special items available for pre-order at special prices, and the “customs” are anything at all that you want! I knit, crochet, weave, spin yarn, and make repairs. I am well versed in many techniques, and soon will add yarn dyeing to my repertoire. If you’ve been eyeing something, join the group and place your order in the next round.
