Saying goodbye to an LYS is never easy, and when Jessica Knits in Scottsdale, AZ closed it's doors for the last time this October it was no exception. I wish Tammy and all the staff much success in their future endeavors! #jknits #jessicaknits #lyslove . If you have been missing the exclusive Arizona colors I've been creating for them, I have some good news! You will now be able to purchase them directly from me (with Tammy's blessing, of course!). Your first opportunity will be TOMORROW, December 1st, when I list all 8 variegated colorways on Quick Step Sock in the etsy shop. . Top row L-R: Sedona Sunrise, Cactus Flower Second row L-R: Antelope Canyon, Havasu Falls Third row L-R: Lake Powell, Morenci Turquoise Bottom row L-R: Monsoon, Cardinal in the Pines . #gherkinsbucket #handdyedyarn #azcolors #indiedyer #diygifts #handdyedsockyarn #yarnlove #yarniesofinstagram #indiedyeryarn

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
