Let's start with something sweet. :)
This is Emeline and Lila Pearl yesterday morning trying to pose with the Morning Glories before we left to deliver some afghan packets to a few ladies here in town.
Is anybody tired of me posting about nothing but afghans for the past five months?? Sorry but it's not over yet. And even though this post isn't officially about the afghan project I wanted to add something to what I wrote about yesterday.
It might sound like I'm a little worn down by this project after working on it for five months but I'm thankful every day that I can do it. Thankful every day that I didn't lose my home, my posessions, my family members or neighbors to the tornado that did so much destruction in the town of Greensburg, Kansas. Thankful and blessed every day that I can work on this project in the comfort of my home with the hustle and bustle of a healthy happy family around me. And reminded every day that the people and families of Greensburg still have a long road of rebuilding and recovery ahead of them - materially and emotionally. I'm thankful for every single person who has helped with this project and thankful for your continued interest and support. That includes my husband and children who did NOT sign up for any of this and were at the mercy of my whim to start this whole project not knowing what it would grow into. Thanks everybody. :)
NOW on to Something Completely Different!!
We've got new yarn for sale and it's not just a new skein of yarn.... we've got two entirely new lines of yarn that I'll be offering depending on your interest. It's nice to be the master dyer at Sugar Bunny Boulevard because I can make up the rules and change them as I go along! heh
The first new yarn we're offering at the Hutch is called Peachy Cotton. You don't have to ponder long to conclude that the base yarn is Peaches and Cream cotton. I wanted to make the One Piece Baby Kimono from Mason Dixon Knitting and wasn't very excited about the color options I found. The next step was obvious: dye my own. And I now have more than I needed!! Soooooo.... you get to try it out!
The first colorway is called AUTUMN and you can find a description along with prices in the Bunny Tales shop (also linked in my sidebar below all of the afghan info). I'm offering three skeins which is more than enough to make the Baby Kimono from MDK. You could probably get a matching pair of booties out of that much yarn! Awwwww. :)
The next new yarn is something I'm really excited about. It's a 100% Merino Superwash Wool sock yarn that I'm calling Benjamin. My blog is named Sugar Bunny Boulevard because I always called my babies Sugar Bunny. With Benjamin being my first baby it only seemed appropriate that my first named line of yarn would be called Benjamin. I'm thrilled to be finally upgrading my base yarns and this is the first one I'm happy to call "my own" with a name. Ravelry is creating a lot of interest in indie dyers and I'm looking forward to having more time to dye this fall. Check out the details of the Benjamin sock yarn in my Bunny Tales shop. I think you'll love this yarn and I look forward to listing more in the shop in the next week or so!
Gotta run - I've got some special knitting to do, pictures to take, and squares to sort! OH! And maybe some babies to take care of. heh Have a great day and take good care of every little thing! XOXOXOX
