This Week in HaldeCraft: Yarn

Posted by 55799468 on

I might have spent all last week working on ceramics, but this week’s update is all for the yarnies - I have a new base (technically a returning base, although in my opinion it does feel mildly different than when I had it before, even though it’s the same fiber content). Introducing, again, for the first time, Elizabeth! She is a Superwash Merino/SeaCell blend, and is very very shiny. I think she would be great for drapey garments like tank tops or shawls. You can see everything in stock here. Thanks, y’all!

It's too cold to put my fingers in the clay

Posted by 55799468 on

There aren't many days during the year that living in a house without central heat/AC becomes full of drama. There are more days in the heat than in the cold that are bad. But this last couple of weeks....? Killing me! It's a cinderblock house, on a concrete slab, and once that gets cold, it remains cold for days. That's part of what makes it bearable in the summer, because it cools off at night and stays reasonable until the sun is directly overhead. But after two nights of 32 or even below - which are rare but have been...

This Week in HaldeCraft: Yarn (Emma and Lynn)

Posted by 55799468 on

The last of the updates this week! These are all new, as in, I have not yet had these colors dyed up in these bases. I'm so excited, too, because they all look lovely. Most of them are Lynn, my standard DK base, but two of them are in Emma, my luxury DK weight base. You can find all of Lynn here, and all of Emma here. Thanks, y'all!

This Week in HaldeCraft: Yarn (Marion and Moon)

Posted by 55799468 on

Yes, more yarn! I was busy last week working those dye pots. Today's update is for luxury sock yarn; Marion (a merino/cashmere/nylon blend) and Moon (a British Blue-Faced Leicester/nylon blend). All the colors are restocks (Cranberries, None of Your Beeswas, Red Mars, Vodka & OJ, and The 70s Have Called), except for The 70s in Moon, which I hadn't yet had time to dye up. You can find all of Marion here, and all of Moon here. Thanks, y'all! PS. What do you think of my new collages? I think they're a lot less fussy to make than the ones...

Second post of the day, and third yarn update this week - this is for my standard sock yarns, Andre and Tiptree. There are a few restocks (Buttercream, Soylent Green, The 80s Have Called, and Irish Coffee) and some that for one reason or another I've just never had in that base (Cranberries, None of Your Beeswax, The 70s Have Called, and Vodka & OJ). You can find all of my standard sock yarns here. Thanks, y'all!
