In Love with Texture

Recently, I started experimenting with texture once again. I just love creating different effects in one yarn; it looks so much more interesting with some coils and some corespun parts than it does just as a plain single :-) I can't help doing more and more right now *g*

A little while ago, Twisted and I ordered new business cards. Until now, we have always printed them ourselves, but at some point we decided it was time for "real" business cards. Well, they arrived today and it was quite a large package - a thousand cards, and they look great :-) Like our previous cards, but on better paper and we don't have to cut them ourselves, anymore. Hurray! :-)

7% off!

We have now sold 71 yarns, some of which we really had a hard time parting with ;-) We decided to do a little promotion concerning item number 77:

~~~whoever buys our 77th yarn will get 7% off the whole order~~~

Be quick ;-)

Can't get enough!

I never thought I'd fall for something like polymer clay, since I normally prefer glass, wood, gem stones and the like - but I just can't stop myself making more beads ;-) It's amazing to be able to make just the stuff I need for a project, and especially for Halloween, I don't care if they are made from plastics (or whatever exactly), they are far too gorgeous :-D So there will be some new yarns soon, I suppose. I might keep some for the crafts fair in October, but some of them will make it into our Etsy shop. The first batch of ghosts has already been spun in and the yarn is drying, setting the twist. Now I'll need some good weather to take good or maybe at least acceptable photos, but it's been raining quite a lot for the last few days and there was not enough light for good pictures...

We have been contagioned - by the common Helloween Fever ;-)
Twisted has already spun -and sold- some Helloween yarns I and have been working on a few now, as well. There's a Banshee coming up, as well as Hel, the germanic goddess of the underworld, which is also quite adequate, I think :-)
I also wanted to do a ghost yarn, and since I didn't have any ghost charms or beads at hand, I decided to try making some from polymer clay. Here they are - soon to be in a wonderful yarn.
