Don't worry I haven't stopped dyeing or crocheting - just found another thing I have to do! Painting silk!! I am previewing the first one HERE that I will be offering for sale right now. I'd love to hear what you think!

Alrighty - that didn't take too long :) I will replace the 2am photos with daylight ones tomorrow though, LOL! The life of a WAHM... hee hee. But the previews are up at least! And here are the sneak peek photos. These photos don't do them justice though I have to say... The last one is my FAVE!

Witch's Brew (not yet re-skeined)
I have been playing in my dyes again... I have at least 3 sets of "longies" yarn (meaning 8 oz with the option of trim) that will be stocking Monday August 25th at noon EST. I have been wanting to try my hand at turning my Low Water Immersion technique on my yarn. And I had so much fun creating these totally one of a kind yarn sets. I think they turned out gorgeous!! The techniques rendered results similar to kettle dyeing with blends and surprises through out the yarn. They should make some fabulous and one-of-a-kind longies! Of course - I am sure you could do lots of other things too, LOL! Rather than dyeing up trim now I will have it as an option at checkout and then dye it to order so you can pick your color or choose not to have any at all. I will share pics as soon as I can!

My son and I are planning our first trip to visit my parents in Kansas at the end of this month - so I am marking in stock items down to raise some travel funds for our trip. Prices will start coming down tonight :) Check it out at www.hyenacart.com/familypendragon

I hate to toot my own horn, especially since nothings selling right now, LOL! But I have to say that the longies/capris I will be posting tonight are (IMO) the most beautiful thing I've ever made. I single crocheted these small longies/capris from the top down in a brand new pattern I created for these which of course is designed to accomodate the cloth diapered babe. I used 8 full ounces of scrumptious Gaia Organic Merino bulky yarn. I first worked it up in its undyed and and unsoaked natural state in single crochet. I then soaked the longies to allow the yarn to bloom (fluff up) creating an even more dense "bulletproof" fabric. Then (and this is the really fun part) I hand painted them like a watercolor landscape painting! It was so much fun! I LOVE how they turned out!!! The have pretty lacey ruffle detailing at the bottom too... I have no little girl to put them on, and it seems silly to frame longies. So I am setting them up for auction in the cart. They will be closing when we get back from our trip on the 13th. I hope some one loves them as much as I do so I can ship them out when I get home! Anything purchased between now and then will be shipped when we get back :)
