What would you do if you knew you could not fail?

Scenes from the last three weeks

Posted by A. Lorena Haldeman on

Wait, what? Where has February gone? Wasn't it just turning February? Now it's the 22nd? The last few weeks have been pretty busy... you probably know that if you follow me on Facebook or Instagram... but here's a little run-down. Long time followers may think this photo looks somewhat, hauntingly familiar. You're not crazy; this is the amazing little boutique that's gone into half of our old yarn store, in the Millhopper Shopping Center on the corner of NW 16th Ave and 43rd Aves. It's called Aspect Beauty, and it's full of soaps, fragrances, candles, and now, a selection of...

The last couple of weeks have kept me offline a bit, but boy howdy do I have a lot to show for that! All three months of yarn club is dyed, and while February and March aren't rewound yet, I got January out the door and the feedback on it is really positive. Personally I think I'm going to need another sweater's quantity of it for myself -- to actually make something, not just to hoard and coo over. I swear!

Scenes from last week

Posted by A. Lorena Haldeman on

When I first started looking over last week, I didn't think there was too much I could show anyone - it feels like most of my week was spent at super-secret dye pots, and at the computer working on things (I spared you a photo of me doing quarterly sales tax... you're welcome). But in looking over my photos for the week, I do have some things to show! Even if most of them are teasers... like these mugs. Many of you who saw this earlier in the week guessed correctly; the grooves and cutout in the handle is to...
