Roundabout Yarn

At the beginning of a new venture, an inordinate amount of time is spent in creating the product and gathering needed information for the website such as photos, pricing, yarn information, shop policies, shipping information, etc., etc., etc. . During the first few weeks of November, I was a dyeing fiend, with every spare minute spent creating lovely colors in the dyepot. There are quite a number of dyed skeins waiting to go to new homes. As much as I would like to, I can’t keep them!

So this weekend will be spent working on uploading photos and spreading the word about Roundabout Yarn! Please take a moment to take the Poll on the previous post. And sign up for the mailing list. I promise not to bombard you with emails and the list will never be sold.

So here are a few photos. Click on the photos to enlarge for color detail. These colors are accurate on my computer screen. Please checking back for more photos and an announcement when the ETSY shop is open!

Take care! ~ Terri

The Knitting Clock

I found myself blog surfing tonight. I stumbled upon some pretty neat websites to share!  The first is the Dudecraft blog.  He has a sidebar of links to other crafty blogs.  This very, very cool knitting clock caught my eye.  Click on the link below to see more about the clock.  It’s worth it.  Very cool.

The Knitting Clock.

Then I stumbled upon another neat blog called DollarStoreCrafts.  Who knew one could be so creative with miscellaneous items from the local $1 store?  Click on over to the site and you, too, can learn how to make your very own Alien Abduction Lamp!  I think I will put a llama in mine…

And last, but not least, an inspirational post by another WordPress blogger Yes, David is Here.  Actually, I found the other sites through this blog.  This particular post is about the work of artist Guerra De La Paz.  I haven’t heard of this artist but I am now a fan!  After enjoying the photos of his work, I checked out his website and found more amazing art!

His use of color and recycled clothing is inspiring but I found myself drawn to his works which used camouflage clothing.  Very provocative and thought provoking!
