***The shop is sold out!  Thank you so much.  This pregnant (and emotional) mama is crying.  I’m so thankful to you all.***

Stitch markers!!!  That’s how I feel about the little stitch markers I’ve been making this month.  There was a lot of trial and error at first, and some sets I made more than once, to get them just how I wanted them.  My little girls received lots of new beads for their own jewelry making as it took me a few tries to find the ones I liked best.  Of course, they were pleased about that.  And I am really thrilled to be offering these this month, in sets of seven markers in little storage tins (padded with a bit of wool so they don’t bang around too much during shipping).  There are quite a few different sets, and I welcome your input if there is a particular saint or medal you would like to see in the future.  Most of the stitch markers are for needles up to size 9 (medium stitch marker section), but I did make a few sets to fit needles up to size 11 (large stitch marker section).

I focused my dyeing this month on U.S. sourced, Virginia milled targhee columbia wool.  It’s nice and wooly, heavy worsted weight, perfect for mid-winter knitting!  The colors are mostly bright, though there are some nice grays and taupes as well.  You’ll find a handful of silk/merino fingering weight skeins, along with some sport weight skeins.  All in all, I think this may be my brightest shop update yet, and I hope it brings some cheer to your winter!

I’ve opened up worldwide shipping, and I am sorry that it is so expensive!  But, it is what it is, and I promise to refund shipping over-payments that exceed a dollar.  Finally, don’t forget to join my new Ravelry group, and remember that all of my yarns are in the Ravelry database now under the brand G. Sheller.

Thank you and happy knitting!!
