My Pretties!

Okay, I am well aware that this is supposed to be a knit blog! I promise more knits to come later this week! Honest! Here's what I've been up too..

New Mama Llama Web PageI was awake for about 24 hours creating this! Thats right Mama Llama has an official web page! I also started a sock and lace club..I've always wanted to do that! Go check it out here.....

New Colorways
So let's get my latest dyeing session out in the open... Theme? Tropical Flowers! (and I threw in Fall Leaves, and Winter colorways in there too ;)
I am VERY PROUD of this batch! I really worked hard to have less of a "flop" than last weekend, and I think it is pure beauty! The solids are not pictued her... still drying ;)

Remeber the last batch? I had test knitters for most of the colors and here is the progress of one of them ... Look at Angelika's Blog to see how they turned out! FUNKY SOCKS!!!!!!

And look Brandon is wearing boys clothes now! they will shrink with a wash or two ;) No more shopping in toddlers for us anymore! (a little sad about it)

Love to be the first one to comment and congatulate you on that last batch. My husband wonders wether we have a life beside yarn. I must say... barely. I like the pastels.

You perfectly captured the colors of the Bird of Paradise flower and I also love the Panama Purple.
Well done.

Catherine,
The Sea yarn I recently got from you last week is beautiful and so soft. Best of luck in your venture!

WOW Catherine, you've outdone yourself! After deciding on "Orchid" I head over to your Etsy store and... it's down due to technical stuff!!! PS: Brandon is sooo cool! x

Catherine, I feel like such a sloth when I read all the things you do :) Congratulations for the growing business. I love the sock club idea, but I wonder, does the price include shipping, and do you also ship to Canada?

Did you say solids? Varigated solids? Hmmm, can't wait to see them too.

Gorgeous dyeing!!!!!

I'm hoping you'll answer me, but what do you do to wrap the skein so that the colors mix with each other (the botoom picture of the skeins) as opposed to pool (the first way they were wrapped.)?
Thanks
Carole
