Sheared Bliss


One person’s FO . . .

. . . is another person’s WIP.  I just dropped this pile of freshly dyed blues and greens off at Wild Yarns, ready to go off into the world and be made into beautiful things.

And this has been sent off to the lovely Kim at Maru Designs to become part of a new pattern series she has in the works.

Hand painted superwash merino in Blueberry from Cat Mountain Fiber Arts.  Spun up this summer to celebrate the fact that I had finally finished spinning a bajillion skeins of white yarn.  Recently sent off to a deserving knitter as part of a gift exchange.

Looks a little bit too much like the view out my window:

I need a hit of color:



New New New!

That’s some of the new inventory I dropped off last week at the newly reopened Wild Yarns.  Their new location is just down the street from Coors Field and shares a space with another awesome local store, Thread.  Wild Yarns is celebrating their first week in their new location by participating in the second annual Yarn Along the Rockies yarn crawl.  There are five more days left in the yarn crawl so get out there and get some local yarn!



Come and Gone

Summer has come and gone and with it another Renaissance Festival season.

CodeMonkey continued his run as the court musician, now with a new and improved doublet.  Also a really snazzy hat made by yours truly.  One of these days I’ll get around to writing a FO Friday post about our hats.

The booth that I work for changed ownership at the end of last season and now belongs to a local potter.  Since I am apparently a strange sort of indentured servant who’s included with the building, I was still there with my yarn.

The rest of the shop was full of absolutely gorgeous handmade pottery.

SweetP was still miraculously able to wear his gowns and overgowns from last year, but over a pair of hose as a shirt and tunic this year.  He was also sporting a brand new made by mommy hat.  He tried his hand as an apprentice spinner . . .

. . . and an apprentice potter . . .

. . . but mostly he liked seeing the sights from the best seat in the house.

And now SweetP and I are off on an adventure to the grandparents’ house for a couple of weeks.  Maybe I’ll write another blog post again sometime in the next three months 🙂



Now Available at a Yarn Store Near You!

That’s assuming you’re somewhere near the Highlands in Denver.  I’m thrilled to announce that Sheared Bliss Fibers yarns are now available at Wild Yarns.

If you are in fact nearby, you really must go check it out.  It’s an adorable little store with a fantastic selection from a wide variety of local fiber artists.



Sheep To Shawl

Sheep were sheared.

Yarn was dyed.

Pretty things were sold.

SweetP was sweet.

And a good time was had by all.
