Are you a yarn lover? A HaldeCraft yarn lover? Are you on Ravelry? If you answered yes to all three questions…. I have an -along for you. This is loosely inspired by -alongs like the “Self Imposed Sock Club”, which is where The Yarn Harlot suggested sock knitters with “too much stash” – AS IF – choose one skein of yarn and one pattern, put it in a bag, do this twelve times, and you have a year’s worth of projects right there.

That thrilling free feeling of feeling free-wheeling

Posted by 55799468 on

I can't tell if it's because I'm ready for and looking forward to GLAM, because I'm ready for and looking forward to my annual Christmas/New Years/Family Birthday vacation, or because I'm ready for and looking forward to what I'm planning work-wise for next year. I've been thinking about my plan for next year since October.

Holiday order and shipping times

Posted by 55799468 on

I’ve been getting a lot of messages from new customers (welcome new followers!) about custom orders for the holidays, and shipping times. It breaks my people-pleasing heart to have to tell people I can’t get custom orders done now - ceramics takes me about six weeks from placing of the order to mailing it out, yarn takes four weeks, and soaps take three; if you follow my blog you saw me post my final dates for holiday custom orders there back in September - but the good news is that I do have PLENTY in stock on both my regular online...
