Who wants to buy some yarn?!?!

LOOK what came in the mail yesterday!!!

All these beautiful yarns hand dyed by Elliebelly! These colors were all custom dyed for Knit Witch. Elliebelly was so wonderful to get our order out to us so fast and she did a great job. This is all sock yarn and it is so soft - 100% superwash merino. It will be going up on the site but not for a few days yet while we get some stuff figured out on the site. They will sell for somewhere around $22 and are all a generous 4oz skein! So stay tuned!

Oh, and I won one of Elliebelly's contests so she sent me this too! It's 30% Seacell and 70% Merino - yummy!

My hard working handyman husband was hard at work for me again yet yesterday. I was wondering what he was doing until he showed me this:

It's a skein winder!!! It has adjustable dimensions so I can wind a 1 yard skein, 1.5 yard, 2 yard, etc. I just got a huge wholesale order in for dyeing so this baby will be going to work very soon.

Most all the time Mr. Man loves me and does sweet things for me. Sometimes, well, I wonder. He left this thing on my computer. Apparently it's a cicada casing. Ummm.....thanks?? I gave it to the kittens - they loved it!

And last but not least, a cuteness picture!

I have been trying to get Steven to make me a yarn winder like that but he's busy running around the country WORKING. Geez. How much would Mr. Man charge to make me one of those?!
