a little bit of news

Hello all. I know that most of you are already well aware that I have recently made the move from my North Devon home back to Canada...my other home. For the time being, it's permanent - although it often still feels like I'm just popping back to Toronto for a visit. After the action-packed 2.5 years I've just had in England, it is going to take a fair amount of settling before I find the ice hockey, Tim Hortons and SNOW normal again. 

In the mean time, I'm keeping myself busy. There are a few little projects I've been working on, and I sincerely hope that I am organized enough to post again about some of them soon (in less than the 6 month window that I usually leave between posting). Anyhow, one of the selection of things I've been keeping myself busy with has been some dyeing. That's right, YARN DYEING! Sheesh, it feels like forever since I stood in that steamy studio, scratching my head and muttering to myself about whether or not to add more blue to a pot. Crazy deja vu, Let me tell you!

Here's a sneak peek at a few of the colours I've been working on.

So here is my plan...

1. I still have more dyeing to do, lots of new ideas and hopefully some great new colours
2. When I have enough yarn (is there ever enough though, really?) I shall announce the date and time of my first etsy update in like 3 years!
3. I'll share more details of bases and colours, along with better photos, as I go along.

So, stay tuned. 

oh yes, and thanks to all who 'liked' my yarny instagram photo this evening. It's all so exciting!


  1. Perfect timing Emily. I want to start knitting and was going to ask you to recommend yarn. Would any of your yarns be suitable for a baby sweater?

  2. woa, tose colors....I want these hanks in my bedroom, as a decoration...

  3. Such beautiful colors. I hope your transition back to Canada is enjoyable! : )

  4. That's so exciting! Looking forward to your first update :)

  5. Thank you for blessing the yarn world anew with your magic touch. You have been truly, madly and deeply missed and it is so unbelievably wonderful to have you back for an update.
