The current state of things: copied from my facebook update:

So... I usually let my etsy listings expire over the summer, but it seems like I've been getting even less traffic than usual. It's been crowded there for a long time, but several factors are making it harder than ever for people like me to get noticed. I could go on about what those things are, but I'm not posting this to whine, just to say what's up with my shop while I look for another solution. I may put things back up in my shop in the fall and maybe not.

I've never been trying to run a big business here, but have been happy enough to make enough to buy more yarn and fiber to work with, pay for Christmas and birthday presents, and even pay an occasional bill. I just love to knit, spin, and weave. I make more stuff than I can use myself, but also can't just give it away, especially since I'll admit I'm a bit of a fiber snob-- NO acrylic craft store yarn here! Lately I've been working on larger projects (like sweaters, which I would not normally make to sell) for myself and my family and remembering what it was that made me love fiber arts to begin with.

Anyway, while there is nothing currently listed in my etsy shop, please know that I have plenty of handspun yarn and winter accessories that are finished, washed, tagged, and ready to mail should you want anything. I'll try to update this page at least a little more often than I have lately.

I'm also on a yarn diet-- no, a yarn FAST-- while I try to downsize my yarn and fiber stash a bit. I'm storing way too much and while I have a whole of yarn and fiber, that doesn't mean I have exactly what I need to fill every custom order. (Especially blue! I never have anything blue!)

INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING: Convo me if you need international shipping and I will get back to you with a shipping quote and options. At this point, I'm not comfortable enough with international shipping to just put it up on all of my listings, but I will ship internationally.
