• Changes and Things that stay the same.

    At last I am putting up a blog post again. I think my last one was about two months ago. Needless to say it has been a hectic couple of weeks. Anyone who follows me on Instagram or Facebook, will have noticed that I have started working full time. The most common question I have received from my yarny friends has been ” I hope you don’t stop dyeing” and my answer is “no, I won’t, but there will there are some changes” So here are the changes: I won’t be doing markets for the long run. I work retail hours, so that won’t be an option. Dyeing will happen…

  • May in all it’s glory

    Hallo again from Worcester, Western Cape,  South Africa! My last blog post was in April. That is very very bad, I know, but in my defense, the markets have been keeping me very occupied. I have been vending at two of the local farmers markets for the last month and although I am happy that I am doing the markets again, it is quite time consuming. I am now busy preparing for  two bigger June markets and a proper yarn festival in August. May in the Southern hemisphere is the last month of Autumn and it is always beautiful to see the changes in nature. We are also grateful for…

  • Shop Update!

    Hallo from a coldish Worcester, South Africa.  I know 24 degrees Celsius classifies as hot in some other countries, but if you live in Africa, that classifies as kinda on the verge of getting cold. I also have to mention that many South Africans will disagree with this statement. On that note, I have the wonderful news that my shop is up and running again! YAY! After a serious yarn drought, I am now able to source the yarns I need to dye. Two of the categories are still empty.The cottons and the accessories are not available as yet, but should be soon. As I mentioned on Instagram, I struggling…

  • Workshop Bliss

    Hallo from Worcester, South Africa. It is the 5th day of March 2019 and we are moving towards autumn in South Africa. Isn’t it amazing how seaons change so quickly? The sun is already starting to come up a bit later and going down a bit earlier. The air is cooling down at night, but we still have a couple of really hot days coming. My two favorite seasons are autumn and spring when everything in nature goes to sleep and wakes up again 6 months later. Of course, for those of you who are winter knitters only, it is time to start unpacking the stash and for us year…

  • What’s with all the changes?

    Hallo from a very hot Worcester in the Western Cape of South Africa. I haven’t written a blog post for a while, but seeing as my new YouTube video is on hold untill I have finished the project I am busy with and actually have content to show, I thought it a good idea to just write something. As you may have noticed, some changes have been made to the site and my shop is currently  closed and under construction. This, I want to assure you, is not permanent. I am busy building up stock for the handspun series that I am adding to the shop (time consuming, but worth…
