School is in the way

Really. I don't have time to read copious amounts of crap. I want to MAKE things.

I decided to try my hand at starting my own business, and so I have an etsy shop under the same name as this here blog: it needs some work but has already brought in some business. Very exciting. So if the lawyering doesn't work out, at least I know I can make some yarn.

Here are the few projects I have managed to get in while finishing my first year, taking summer classes, and starting my very first lame-ass grad school work study job (in the library):

Felted soap and non-felted soap in double mint castille. Yum.

Popsicle yarn-dyed with kool aid and then spun

<-Lots of yarn that I made for a swap. I dyed the fiber with kool aid (orange and the skein in the upper left) and wilton icing dyes (everything else).

Another duct tape wallet. I love mine, so made another to sell.
<-Peony yarn. Spun out of soft and fluffy merino from Grafton. She cards amazing batts that are soooo nice to spin.

*Someday I'll learn how to actually organize these things spacially, but not today. However, I did finally fix my links over there to the right, which is almost too much excitement for me to handle in one day, so I'm calling it quits.
