I’m so excited!  The Fairy Yarn Mother web site is here. But I’m getting ahead of myself, I should tell you what it is first. It’s just the best damn on-line, web site on the internet for hand dyed yarns and fiber! Yup, that’s what it is, and you’re gonna love it! It came about because my good friend Riin and I re-connected after several years and discovered that we were both doing the same thing, we had started businesses selling our hand dyed yarns. Riin and I meet in 1992 when I worked in Ann Arbor, we knit together every week for years and years. Anyone that’s ever been in a knitting group knows how well you get the know people when you knit in a circle. 8 years ago my job took me home to Wisconsin, we lost touch for a while but fortunately reconnected last year. Early this year we decided to combine forces to creat Fairy Yarn Mother!  The above photo shows a mix of the yarns and fiber for sale on the new site, http://www.fairyyarnmother.com, check back to see our progress on it.  Thank you for looking.

The weather is starting to get me down

Posted by Fairy Yarnmother on March 10, 2009

I don’t think we’ll ever see the sun again.  it’s hidden under stormy skies that I wish would go away.  It was getting me down so I had to go into the basement last night and dye yarn in bright colors.  Here’s a few for you to look at.  :)
