Our shop will be updated Thursday, September 1st at 12 p.m. EST.  New this month are handmade red oak cutting boards!  Jonny really labored over these, and they are beautiful.  He also made more bird shawl pins.  This month he made them in both black walnut and cherry.

These past few weeks have been full of late summer dyeing and this month there are some new colors:  periwinkle, deep goldenrod yellow, and olive green.  I created some deep indigo blue skeins speckled with white, thinking of Mother Teresa.  I also sewed up more sachets.

I am really loving the new yarns that I am dyeing now, all sourced and milled in the U.S.!  I hope you will love them too.  In addition to my naturally dyed yarn, this month I am offering a handful of skeins of natural white wool yarn in both 2 ply sport weight and 2 ply fingering.  There are a couple skeins of the single ply fingering as well.  I was inspired to do this because of my current knitting project, a shawl in both natural white and my cochineal/indigo purple.  I’m planning another in goldenrod green and white using my 2 ply fingering weight.  I can’t wait to cast on for that one!
