  1. […] added a new colorway for our Alpaca Silk Yarns: There and Back Again. The color goes in a smooth gradient from creamy white all the way to dark […]

    1. Oh I wish I’d known that about you not being sold out. I tried to order from you and when I couldn’t, I odrered from another shop. First they sent it to the wrong address, then they sent the wrong yarn, now they’re not responding to my emails. 6 weeks later and I still don’t have my yarn or my money. 😦

      1. Oh, no, that sounds like a terrible shopping experience! I feel for you. How come you couldn’t order from me? Was the Etsy site down? I didn’t notice anything wrong, but if you tell me what happened, I can look into it so it won’t happen again!

  2. I learned to knit when a frnied taught me in college then I didn’t knit for years and I am just now picking it back up again. I have done 2 scarfs so far. Would love some beautiful yarn for more fun projects!

  3. I knit because it’s the way I craete beauty in my world and fiber is the best way I know how after all, by making a hand-knit wearable, it makes my part of the world just a bit more beautiful And I love your YARNS!

  4. Those look awesome Caitlin. I shulod show you the really soft sock yarn yarn I picked up yesterday.I have the same problem about when to start the decreases. Do you have a little kitchen scale or anything? Maybe just see if the post office will let you borrow theirs for a few moments? Picking one up is one my to do list for this winter, but that doesn’t really help out right now 🙂
