Hello. I just had to show off my new favorite hand dyed yarn! It’s called “Boho Beauty“. It is shown here in MCN Fingering weight yarn. It’s also readily available in Bulky!
Come check out the A Chick That Knitz Etsy shop. We are having a 20% off sale this week.
How are y’all doing? I can feel Fall in the air! It’s still 90 degree weather here, but the days are shorter. There is a crispness in the air in the morning that is reminiscent of Fall. I LOVE Fall!
Lauren and Luke came over yesterday and we played in a basket of Hexipuffs.
We had so much fun! These hexipuffs are for The Beekeeper’s Quilt by Tiny Owl Knits.
You need over 300+ hexipuffs to make the quilt! I made these years ago and never assembled them. Now that I dye my own yarn, I want a new one with my own yarn colors in it.
Enjoy your day today! Don’t forget to check out the sale online. It goes thru the weekend. Etsy Shop – A Chick That Knitz
Happy Knitting Friends,
This morning, I’ve been busy working on a photo shoot for my yarns. I did really good until this happened.
Max is a big grown up cat now. This June he will be two. He still likes to come up and give me a cuddle every once in a while. He has that aloof personality of cats, and you should feel grateful that he evens pays any attention to you. He saw me working with my yarns and had to come up and pose. He knows his role well.
My daughter, Lindy, moved back home to finish nursing school and brought her cat, Milo, with her. Now, there are two nosey felines hanging around.
The yarn has it’s own room in my house where the kitties do not hang out. They typically camp out in Lindy’s room now. If she is not running her pants off working or going to classes, she is laying in bed trying to catch up on sleep. That’s where these two like to be, in bed with her.
I had to take a break from the photo shoot to play with the kitties. I am their door keeper after all. I open the door to let them out, and I open the door to let them in. (About 10 times per day).
I did get some work done today!
Lauren has been creating too! She made this beautiful coral and teal color-way listed below. I don’t have a name for it yet, but it reminds me of a Koi Pond. She has a beautiful tonal teal/turquoise color that goes with it, but I cannot get it pictured right. It’s coming out as blue and it isn’t blue at all. That’s when the kitties interrupted me for a break.
I better get back to work. Kitties have moved on. Milo catches the lizards around here, a few little snakes too. I bet they are working keeping the perimeter safe. I’m off to list some more yarn on the Etsy site. Etsy – A Chick That Knitz
Have a great day friends!
I’ve finally finished an official “Fade” type pattern! Yay me! I’ve made a fade type shawl with my previous shawl “Dotted Rays” by Stephen West. I was creative and made the Fade on my own. This is “Free Your Fade” by Andrea Mowry. It’s an easy knit. Guess what? I made it with my own hand dyed yarn! Yay me again!
This takes 3 skeins of yarn in different color combinations. I made this in my Fingering Singles yarn in Pink, Circus, and Lake House. I’m going to make a moody, dark one next.
I’m working every day on my new hand dyed yarn business. Currently, I’m stocking my “store” on Etsy. You are sure to find me under “A chick that knitz.” I’ve got 27 different color ways listed. I have about 50 total to load. Once I have all my colors listed, I’m going to have a grand opening sale and everything will be 30% off for the opening. So go look around if you would like, but remember to wait for the official opening for 30% off everything! I love a good sale! (It’s taken me a week to photograph and load 27 colors, it may take another week to load the rest).
I will also have my own “shop” on the web. I will get that up and running once I’ve loaded up Etsy. Since I’m brand spanking new with my yarn business, I figured that would help introduce my yarn to people.
It Spring Y’all! Yay! My nose sure knows! I’m allergic to cedar and every other kind of tree known to mankind. I’m basically allergic to March. I don’t know how they work, but I have a Himalayan Salt Lamp near my bed and it helps with my allergies. It doesn’t cure them, but it helps. I notice a difference when I don’t have it on anyway.

I’m in-between projects right now. My fingers are itching to work on something! I’m looking for a particular project. When I officially open my store and have the grand opening, I’m going to do a “KAL. Knit-a-Long” and I’m looking for that project. I want to showcase my yarns and showcase a Fade type pattern.
