Recently stocked: One Hit Wonders

Posted by A. Lorena Haldeman on

Back in stock, some One-hit Wonders! A "one hit wonder" is a non-repeatable colorway that happens when there is dye testing going on, or an accident happens in the dye-pots or something just doesn't go quite as planned... BAM! Instant One Hit Wonder! This is your chance to snag a one-of-a-kind colorway, because these are not repeated! 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".

Back in stock: Gradient Sock Blanks

Posted by A. Lorena Haldeman on

Gradient sock blanks are back in stock! An experiment in gradient colors, these sock blanks go from dark to light to dark again, and will give whatever you make a truly unique, and almost heathered, look. Curious about sock blanks, and how they work up? You can crochet or knit from one end, unraveling from the blank as you go, or you can do what you'd do with a skein and wind it into a center-pull ball, first. It's up to you! I'll have an example of something I have on the needles at the end of this post. HaldeCraft...

Works-in-Progress Wednesday (09/27/17)

Posted by A. Lorena Haldeman on

Whoa. Wednesday. I almost feel like this should be a "Why I Haven't Been Blogging Wednesday" or "What Happened to September Wednesday" ... but maybe I'll wrap the post up with some "What's Been Going On". First, though, what I've been working on! In ceramics I am ashamed to say there is not much. Oh, well, there's a lot, but so much I don't feel I'm making progress on anything. I just bought a TON of new bisque to glaze up and put some holiday/limited edition things in the shop for the Fall and Winter, so expect those to start...

Works-in-Progress Wednesday (08/16/17)

Posted by A. Lorena Haldeman on

What are you working on this week? I'm feeling more excited and motivated by ideas than I have in a while -- whether that's because summer is almost over, or I'm gearing up for some craft shows, or I'm just feeling a sudden creative and motivational spark, I'm not sure... but I'm loving whatever it is! In ceramics, I'm working on both the August mugs (late) and the September mugs (early). I may actually wind up switching them, because I've had a lot of interest in the September mugs already, and I'm going to be travelling the week I was...
