We have for your viewing pleasure a super shiny purple swirls acrylic nalbinding needle and Stormy Skies superwash merino sock yarn. This sock yarn is luscious and fabulously squishy! I loved working with a sparkle test version for my daughter’s socks. (I may have to see if I can get more of the sparkle soon…)
This week’s Shy Red Fox shop update is a little light due to getting back from a fun travel weekend and getting our passports ready. (Hubby will get to travel to Italy some time this year. I hope to hit Japan in a few years. Might as well get them all done at once!)
This week’s shop update is nalbinding needles in acrylic and birch laminate. Check these and other needles, yarn, completed items, patterns, and felted items (by my daughter) in my Etsy Shop.
In other news, this week has been a tough one as I support a friend who lost a parent. On the good side, we got to foster that parent’s diabetic kitty until my friend was able to retrieve him. He’s a real sweet heart with a crazy low meow.
My daughter and I are super excited about attending Green Camel Gathering in Tyler, MN next week. A whole weekend of crafting and a yoga class, yippee!
After that, I’ll be prepping for April’s teaching gigs in Brookings, SD and York, NE.
In project news, I’m playing with a wave pattern scarf that I hope to write up in pattern form.
Custom orders for nalbinding needles are open for April 2016!
Message me here on tumblr or my shop on Facebook and I’ll get your order on the list. Feel free to reblog if you think it’s cool. But I have a hard time catching requests in reblogs – so messaging me is best if you have a request!
