Gosh, time really flies! I remember moving into this house not 3 years ago and setting up my little dye studio in our garage. Shortly after I shot pictures of where I dye yarn as well as my office and my room where I did all my yarn winding. Today is so much different. I no longer cook yarn out of just one pot nor do I work out of my yarn winding room - that room has been reclaimed as a spare bedroom while I use more space in our unfinished area in our basement.
Priorities have shifted more to administrative work and being most efficient at production. I still can't quite believe I only had that one little lonely pot to dye in when I started here and it served me just fine at the time. Fast forward 3 years and I'm dyeing out of multiple pots at a time and have at least 2 more tables to work from with one holding the dye powders exclusively. I'm right on the cusp of adding in yet another table with more cooking pots too...that should be coming in the New Year!
Why the nostalgia? I'm heading toward starting my 5th year dyeing yarn in less than 2 months. Things have sure changed a lot in 3 years and if business continues the way it has more changes are afoot I'm sure! Perhaps I better snap some photos of my dye studio soon so I can look back again in another 3 years.
Of course, this post wouldn't be complete without announcing a little yarn update to the store...this time Serenity Silk in multiple colourways. If you're following along with Romi and have subscribed to her 7 Small Shawls series, her fourth shawl coming up will be knit with this yarn in the 14 kt colourway. I can't tell you how excited I am to finally see her design...it's been in the making for awhile now!
