Restocking Fairies of Avalon!

I had pulled the Fairies of Avalon skeins out of stock for a possible Christmas gift. But since they were not needed I have now restocked them for anyone that is interested. $24 for 8 oz of Cestari - prices will be going up in January :)

Something on the horizon...

Things are very busy here at Family Pendragon. January may be more hectic than expected, so we'll see if I actually get all the things done on my list, LOL! There is also a possibility that may be carrying my sock yarn soon. More on that as I know more :)

Dyeing soon!

Well the holidays are over and I am getting back to work! My darling husband had to work through Christmas but has the next few days off - so I will be getting some dyeing done - woohoo!

On a whim!

OK, so I am going to be filling a couple dye orders and I feel like whipping up a little something new with the brand new dye colors I just got in - so I am also going to add a total "Surprise me!" slot.

Surprise stocking

I am putting a couple skeins of yarn up for sale as HOLD style sales. Faeries of Avalon - extra I made when I dyed for a recent custom and a new one - Mermaid Garden on licorice twist merino.

Update on the longies pattern! And lots of other stuff....

The written version of the longies pattern is now to the test ready stage, however it needs pictures....  which means I need to make a set of NB longies in contrasting colors and get some really good photos of the stages of development and tricky spots. I have one more custom to do this month, and a couple sizeable dye orders - and then I will hopefully get Christmas gifts knocked out, LOL! I am leaving January pretty much open to figure out taxes and - theoretically get the pattern completed, and work toward revamping my site. Yarn prices will be going up. My manufacturers are raising prices and I will also be changing the price structure to make it easier on myself. Right now the PayPal fees, packaging fees, etc are lumped in with the shipping and it gets confusing. So I am going to go ahead and add them in with the item/yarn prices as I change the rates on the site. I am also trying to figure out how I am going to offer custom slots next year - and how many per month my son will let me do.... your suggestions are welcome. I have been thinking of doing all lottery for purchase slots for crochet and all custom slots for yarn. Also - as a side note - I did finally get the luscious Bulky BFL in!! It may be the last for a while due to supply issues from the UK. And - something to keep in mind when ordering future customs - thicker yarn equals fewer stitches which means faster turn around and a lower price for you :) I just completed a Large pair of longies using Cestari Aran weight yarn and instead of $89 - the labor ended up being just $40! And of course the Cestari Columbian Merino is very affordable, durable, plenty soft - and it only took 10.5 ounces!! I am so in love with that yarn :) Can you tell?? LOL! OK - enough 2AM rambling... time to go snuggle up with the cutest little boy in the world :)
