Gherkin's Bucket

~Inspired Fiber and Yarn~ I'm Krysten and I've been professionally dyeing yarn & fiber since 2008. Visit my website for a direct link to my etsy shop!

"Supermassive Black Hole" is in the shop as a very special DK weight Gradient! My lovely Simple SW DK base is one of my most popular yarns - grab one of these special offerings while they last!
One solitary skein of a specially dyed DK Gradient version of "Unicorns & Lightning Bolts" is in the shop! That's right - DK weight, using my popular Simple SW DK base. Super squishy and now with gradient action! ๐Ÿ’ช
"Waterlust" is new in the shop! A Limited Run color of watery blues and greens in high contrast splashes. I've got skeins on SW Silk Sock and Simple SW DK. Get them while supplies last!
Fresh skeins of "Easy Money" on Quick Step Sock and sparkly Shimmer Sock are in the shop just in time for March! ๐Ÿ€ Rainbows and gold-speckled green make for happy Leprechauns!
Shop Update! ๐ŸŽ‰ Lots of sock weight and some squishy Aran weight as well! Shown here are Peachy Keen, The Floors of Ancient Rome, Adrift (new!), and Water's Edge all on my Simple SW Aran yarn (100% SW Merino, 170yds).

The dye studio has water! ๐Ÿ’ฆ I am able to accept dyeing requests again. ๐Ÿ™† . Please note: โœˆ I'll be out of town from July 2nd - 7th. I will keep the #etsy shop open for purchases, and shipping will occur after we return. . Thank you!! ๐Ÿ’– . #gherkinsbucket #handdyedyarn #familyvacations #etsyshop #yarnpetkit #yarnpet
D'oh! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ During some recent construction the water supply to my dye studio was cut; in order to do any dyeing I will need to haul my water in manually (that's the fancy way to describe me filling & carrying stock pots of water back and forth, lol). ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜…๐ŸŒŠ . Because of the inefficiency of the process, combined with the dangers of our triple-degree temps outside, I am unable to fill any new dyeing orders at this time. ๐Ÿ˜ฅโ˜€๐ŸŒต . ๐Ÿ“ฆThe shipping of etsy shop purchases remains unaffected. I'm hopeful that the water will be restored in the next two weeks. โ˜บ . #gherkinsbucket #indiedyerlife #etsy #etsyshop
I'm headed out of town until June 7th! โœˆ I am leaving the #etsy shop open while I'm away, but PLEASE NOTE ๐Ÿ‘€ any purchases made at this time will ship out after my return! ๐Ÿ“ฆ Thank you! #gherkinsbucket #vacation #haveyarnwilltravel #makersgonnamake
Am I the only one who has "Needle/Hook Reset Days", where I go around to all my crafty "stations" around the house and gather the needles and hooks from completed projects and puts them aaaaaaaall back in their cases?? ๐Ÿ˜… . Despite my mom's best attempts at teaching me to put my things away when I'm done using them, I still frustrate myself by letting my tools pile up until I have more items MISSING from my cases than present! ๐Ÿ˜ถ . Is this you too? Or do you faithfully replace your knitting needles and crochet hooks immediately after you finish a project? . #gherkinsbucket #makersgonnamake #handmadehome #inquiringminds #knittersofinstagram #crochetersofinstagram #wheremyneedlesat #hookersgonnahook
๐Ÿ‘€Speckled and splashy beauties are now up in the #etsy shop! If you were drooling over some of my new repeatable #speckleyarns - they have arrived!

Thank you to everyone who came by to see me at my trunk show this weekend! ๐Ÿ’“ . #gherkinsbucket #handdyedyarn #indiedyer #indiedyersofinstagram #specklesaresohotrightnow #etsyshop #yarnlove #indiedyedyarn #arizonadyer
Happy Mother's Day! ๐Ÿ˜„ The #etsy shop is back up (thank you to everyone who came out to see me yesterday!) and I will have all the new speckled beauties, plus some other goodies freshly listed on Monday. ๐Ÿ’“ . These cuties were a special request from my son, and were made from leftovers of my Simple SW DK yarn in Glad Hand and Dark Plum using HappyAmigurumi's "Amigurumi Little Octopus" pattern (free on Rav!). I wish a happy and restful day to all the busy mamas out there! . #gherkinsbucket #indiedyer #handdyedyarn #mothersday #makersgonnamake #heisateenager #octopus #yarniesofinstagram #crochetersofinstagram #crochetlove
