We're featured

Wow, that's awesome! We've been featured in Cricket Creations Handknit Scarves! It's a very special honour, as she knits the most beautiful scarves. That's the reason we included one of her gorgeous creations in a treasury we were able to grab a few days ago. :)

Dragon Art Yarn Series coming up

I am currently working on a new series which started with a Green Dragon Art Yarn. This started one day in my favourite café in Heidelberg where some friends and I were talking about yarns and someone came up with the dragon idea. I was into this immediately :-) So I bought some things, including red ricrac, and started my first dragon yarn. I liked it so much that I wanted to do some more. One of my friends (in the café) had mentioned the Hungarian Horntail (from the Harry Potter books) and I knew I wanted to make yarn inspired by the dragons from the Harry Potter World. I really like the books and I have already made some Harry Potter Art Yarns - Slytherin (sold), Skin of a Basilisk (one skein is still for sale) and Gryffindor (not finished yet) - and I wanted to do more, anyway. So I bought some more stuff *g*

I made the Hungarian Horntail yarn a few days ago, but sadly the coppery ricrac is very stiff and it was difficult to spin in - and I was afraid it would fall out at some point, so I couldn't really sell it. I decided to knit it up myself and sell the finished object with the ricrac secured properly.
This project is to be a drawstring purse. I started too big, so I'll probably have to spin some more yarn before the end, but I don't mind ;-)

I might decide to knit all of the dragon yarns instead of selling them as yarns, but either way there will be a new series in our shop soon :-)

So, what's up?

Well, it's been quite quiet here for the last weeks. And I'm really sorry for that. Unfortunately it'll stay that way a bit longer: Weird is currently digging for some ancient artifacts (no, I'm not kidding, she does!), which seems to be quite exhausting. But well, she eventually got a light tan which suits her very well. I in contrast am still completely cream-faced, because I spend all my time studying for the big fat final examinations. I'm really, really, r-e-a-l-l-y-! looking forward to be done with them, to finally complete my degree! Even though I don't know what I'll be doing then, it can't be worst then studying all darn day!

But even though neither Weird nor me have too much free time, we're still spinning for stress relaxation. So check our shop if you're interested in what we spend our leisure time with! ;-)
