that woolly season!

Now that we've waded through the seasonal cold a few times, celebrated one birthday, and planned another, I think I'm finally starting to see the Christmas lights! Little Bear turned 1, Iggy turns 4 (!!!) on Monday, and my little business turns 8 in February.

Woolly production work has taken a hit as my babysitting source (ahem, Mom) has had a duo of surgeries to recover from. I'm trying not to agonize about the "to-do" list and instead enjoy this holiday season with my little wild things. However, I am really enjoying painting top again like never before. I dyed up a set of winter inspired colorways last week, here's "Long Johns" painted on a base of superwash merino/bamboo/nylon (panda).

I've also started ramping up Battling production as I hear more and more positive feedback from spindlers about these darling little mini batts.

Right now, I'm working on the finishing touches for a collaborative Nerdy Spin-Along with Kate B. from Gourmet Stash. I blended up three villainous character-inspired colorways using a luxury fiber base and she blended up punis inspired by three heroes. I have a few sets of Moriarty left, and then I'll be completely sold out.

As usual, I'll be taking the final two weeks of December "off" from carding. I'll use that time to destash a year's worth of paperwork and junk, organize my fiber stash in preparation for Maryland Sheep and Wool, paint a little, write that short story bouncing around my head, and.. who am I kidding, I'll probably just sit on the floor and play with plastic dinosaurs.

ps. Here's my birthday boy! He's walking and talking! Fastest year of my life.
