Posted by A. Lorena Haldeman on

There's a new Limited Edition HaldeCrate in the works, to be released in May... introducing..... (drum roll please) ... Under the Sea. Under the Sea will be offering four different things: yarn (available in all eight base weights); a mug; an incense burner; and a set of small nesting dishes. The only part of this available for pre-order will be the yarn (if you're interested in three or more skeins at one time, contact me).

How's your week going? I'm feeling very... I don't know if I should say lucky, or privileged. I already worked at home. I live on 15 acres so there's no-body within half a mile of me, let alone six feet, so I can go outside into the sunlight and walk around in nature any time I want. I'm relatively healthy. I did a really smart thing two weeks ago and did a massive grocery store run, made and froze food before the ingredients would go bad, and we're still working on eating it all. I might need to brave a...

No matter how scruffy-looking you might be, or whatever type of weird animal you might herd, you're going to love this colorway!

You know... normal scoundrel type stuff. HaldeCraft HandDyed yarns started life in 2007 in a small yarn store in Gainesville, Florida (Hanks Yarn and Fiber) and was then called "Perhaps Today is a Good Day to Dye". It has continued online as HaldeCraft HandDyed since 2011, and...

My focuses this week are trying to focus, writing, dyeing yarn, making ceramics, and trying to focus (ha!). Anyway. Let’s get to it! In ceramics, I have two main things going on this week - playing with shapes and textures, and making a new set of magnets involving the word “be”… be strong, be unique, be whatever, and so on. I thought I was going to make a series of mugs that said those, but the more “be” words I come up with the more I think that would be a hundred thousand mugs so how about maybe some magnets,...
