Giant Project of Doom at work is DONE!  Yay!  At least, Phase 1 of Giant Evil Project is done.  There are more phases.  But this phase was the one I had sole responsibility for and thus was scary.  And heavy.  And dusty.

In other news, I’m thinking of actually opening an Etsy shop or something to sell yarn once I finish the whole degree thing and have a bit more free time.  It’s getting to the point where I see handspun yarn and unless it’s insanely fine or some fancy novelty stuff, it looks like the stuff I make.  And I’m starting to get into the fancy novelty stuff.  I can’t tell if I need to make fancy novelty stuff if I want to sell it, or if there are people looking for boring utilitarian yarn…there’s just so much less you can do with the funky slub boucle yarns, becuase they kind of lack structural integrity even if they’re well-made.

    I think there are a lot of knitters out there who want pretty but utilitarian yarn. Especially if they’re making socks.

    Have you checked out The Ravelry? https://www.ravelry.com/account/login
    You might be able to get some idea of the types of yarn people are buying for their stashes. Of course, there are over 300,000 people on the Ravelry…

    Saw that mousing over your blog name referred to another site; visited your older blog. Kids very amused by Dire Pot Lid. :) I hope to make it to Lehman’s someday. Cumberland General Store is also fun. In the past they even sold horse drawn carriages and spare parts for same. May not still, under new management. Hard to know without the actual catalog. But they have cast iron. http://www9.mailordercentral.com/cumberlandgeneral/
    (Actually, Wal-Mart has cast iron, if you’re not anti-Wal-Mart)
