The Year of Yarn

So far, 2012 has been the “Year of Yarn” for me. I’ve been dyeing non-stop this past week. As a result, I was able to add several new colorways to the shop.

New Yarn Colorways

From the top left: Jayne Cobb, Kaylee, Bumble Bee, Southwest Zombie, Nightwing and Fangtasia.

I’ve also restocked some popular colorways like Sonic Screwdriver, Zombie Flannel, Fawkes the Phoenix, Decepticon, Polyjuice Potion and Roller Derby Diva.

Popular Yarn Colorways Restocked

As always, all of the yarns shown above are available on Etsy. I also have some freshly dyed spinning fiber I’ve been dyeing, but it’s not quite dry and ready to put up on the site yet. That update will happen in a couple of days.

Many of you have commented how much you like the names I’ve chosen for all the different colorways, so I’m sticking with what I know — my dorky side — when it comes to naming. If there is a particular color you like that is not in-stock, there’s a good chance it can be duplicated. Just contact me and let me know.

PHAT FIBER – If you love the monthly Phat Fiber sampler box, you’re going to love this month! I contributed some fantastic “luxe” fiber for the sampler box. It is yummy, that’s all I can say.

(Hint, hint…I also included a coupon code in my samples.)

MONSTERS! – Starting this week, Lost Arts & Antiques will have some new Gnominions monsters in-stock. I had a lot of fun making these guys. This is going to be a limited release. I expect to have more available this Spring, specifically in time for the Monroe County Sheep Festival in mid-April.

NEW WORKSHOP – In super exciting news, GnomeAcres just moved into a bigger workshop area! Woohoo! It’s all in preparation for new items I plan on offering within the next couple months.

LAST DAY FOR CUSTOM ORDERS – In other not-so-exciting news, today is going to be the last day for custom orders for a couple of weeks. I will be having thumb surgery later this week, so all “making of things” will be coming to a halt for a short time. I really appreciate all of the kind words and well wishes I have received thus far. You guys are great!
