So it’s official. Suzoo’s Wool Works (The Mother Company) and The Sheepwalk Fiber Arts Studio are moving to Bandera, Texas. Wooohooo! This has been a long time dream of mine to get back to the farm life. Everybody has a dream and I strongly encourage you to write it down, make a gratitude list and do the work. ‘Cause I couldn’t get to Texas without doing the work. We will be working fast to get the barn up for stopper by’s and front porch sittin’. My tea is chilled and it will sure taste nice sipping between repeat rows. Just don’t forget to mark down which row you completed in case if you get side tracked with site seeing and bbqs! I will soon have a list of all the yarn shops in our area. There are 11-12 shops for sure along with Comfort Crockery/The Loom Room in Comfort, TX.
WHERE TO FIND OUR YARNS
Klose Knits, Urbana, IL
Renaissance Pleasure Faire, Irwindale, CA
Tanya’s Girls Garage, Vicksburg, MI

Here are some cool links for my viewers:
There is also a Scots Fest in Round Rock for the plaid maker’s, a renaissance faire north of Houston mid November and loads of antique shops. Just around the corner from Bandera is a winery. Of course, I am going to encourage you to get a slice of pizza over at Comfort Pizza!
I am totally straying from the purpose of my blog…hand dyed yarn BUT Soknitsome has this really cool widget on her blog page. It’s called the KnitMeter. Yes, you need to get this!!!!
This is too awesome!
So in the way things go, I have discovered that delays in getting my yarn leads to new endeavors. I texted my helper bee and told her the good news. “Guess what?” I said. “The Merino Cashmere is going to become our main theme for the next month.” This means more winding, more dying yarn, more winding, and then tagging the yarn. It’s all a process. The more you give of yourself in to your dream the more you can get out of it.
Here’s the COMING SOON part:
Caismír is the Irish Gaelic word for Cashmere. Everybody knows Merino for being the most versatile and popular of wools out there. With a touch of cashmere and nylon, you also get luxury and durability. We all deserve to feel good in what we knit.
Amhrán grá Sock
We have all been guilty of listening to love songs. Yet, we are moved to dance when we are truly in love (with you, another, your experience). Feel this love from the top of your head to the tips of your toes in Amhrán grá Sock yarn.
I have a couple of girls working on my hand dyed fiber. The first round of dyed fiber was vibrant colors. We started with a felted votive then Debbie went home and created a flower. She set her mind to creating a flower and the photo reveals the fruit of her labor. I just love this!
Finally streamlined for your pleasure….
Kind of excited…I knit up a swatch and test washed it too. And I was not nice. The red was determined to not turn the white pink.
