Finally got around to it!

I finally got around to adding and updating my policies, prices and custom info. on the Hyenacart. Thanks to Karen for making it possible to have informational sections on our site now! Let me know if you see that I have forgotten something :)

Customs Dilemma :(

Unfortunately for all the sellers involved there have been rampant chargeback schemes run on various HC WAHMs in the past couple months. One of the things that has come to light is the fact that we, as sellers, are not adequately protected if we accept Paypal for custom orders. Because of this fact I am considering only allowing custom orders to be paid for in full by postal money order prior to starting a custom. I realize this is a scary idea for a customer, but I can only hope that my feedback history will speak for itself. The alternative is to just stop doing customs entirely, and I'd hate to do that - I love my customs! I will be working on getting new policies published on the site as time allows.

Discount time!

I am tired of looking at all these things instock :) I am going to spend the evening marking everything down - you might be surprised just how much some things will come down ;) I am starting right now and will mark the items as SALE once the mark down is taken. First come first served as they say - so come grab them as you see them!

A look at some of what I am up to...

Just thought I'd take a minute to share some of my current projects :)
First of all, this is one of the custom skeins we just finished that will ship out tomorrow. This is the 3rd time this combo has been requested and I love it too. Its almost Medee but without the black. So we will probably be adding it to the permanent colorway collection. I've asked it's new owner for a name suggestion!
And this is Kelly's custom under way - won't be long now :) This is Bulky BFL in a more vivid version of Pixie Petals. Oh so cute! There will be a butterfly on them when they are all done :)
And here is something I whipped up the other night while waiting for other yarn to dry. It is a Tunisian halter top with Tunisian shell stitch (think thats right), Tunisian simple stitch, Tunisian reverse stitch and Tunisian knit stitch. It is in the Pixie Petals colorway. I am just needing to add a pretty button so the neck is adjustable.

This is another halter I have going with my own custom yarn that is almost the same as the first one except the colors are in a slightly different order. And another something I whipped up while waiting for yarn to dry - using a bunch of what I had laying around, LOL!

Custom crocheting continue into the wee hours each night ;) And next week we wrap up custom dyes and start on Woolgirl!

New colorway and update!

We are all out of custom dye slots and crochet slots at the moment, but I have added a gorgeous new colorway for Summer 2008. There are 3 skeins of Merlin sockyarn that are previewing now and will be available June 4th at 8 AM ET. In the meantime we are finishing up all the custom dye orders in preparation for starting the Woolgirl order next week! I will continue using my "night owl" time to work on the custom crochet orders. I have also somehow managed to make a couple instock items in my "freetime" that will be posted when I get a chance to take pictures etc. Looks like a great June is in store for Family Pendragon! Thanks so much to you all for helping to make it all possible :)
