I want to start out this post with announcing that my prices will be going up. This was a hard decision to make, but after having my yarn at Woolgirl and at Knot Another Hat for a couple of months now, I had a consultation with both of them. My top priorities are as follows:
1. That the people I am selling through make enough money to keep them in business. I think it would be sad to see either one of these fine companies go under, though I doubt that I am the only thing keep either one afloat.
2. Not undercutting others in my same field. I want to sell my yarn at a competitive price that doesn't take away from others trying to make a living.
3. I want to be paid adequately for the time and effort it takes to do the work I do.
That being said, the new prices will go into effect starting June 1st. Since I feel like this is a little short notice for my blog, I will keep the prices the same on My Shop until this sunday. The only things that are going to change are the sock yarns, so keep that in mind.
Ok, onto more pleasant things:
This is a brand new colorway. Sarah asked me to paint some of the alpaca lace yarn like Sea Turtle, only in reds. I am so very happy with the results that I am going to make it a regular color. I have named it Smokey Rose.
Though, speaking of yarn colors, I think I am going to redo my yarn gallery in the very near future. So, look out for changes! I will make sure to announce them here when I do.
Oh, and don't forget to enter my blog contest! You have until Sunday to comment.
