Better Late Than Never

While we’re cutting it a little close for Christmas, I did finally get the last of my holiday lotion bar scents up in the shop!

Ribbon Candy is a delightfully sweet, berry-kissed scent that is both festive and delicious. It is included in the Season’s Treats sample-sized gift set (along with Peppermint Cocoa and Gingersnap). I’ve also created a Winter Wonderland gift set that contains Fresh Snow, the now-well-known-Jingleberry, and Winter Gardenia. There’s still time to ship before the holidays if you place your order soon! (Last day to order is Dec. 19th.)

The eagle-eyed among you might have noticed that the Yarn Harlot suggested my bars as part of her most excellent Gifts for Knitters series! She in fact said that they “look fabulous”… which basically made my day/year/life. šŸ˜€ Woohoo for Sweet Sheep!

Packing a bulk order.

I spent much of the weekend busily re-stocking the shop and filling bulk orders. My house smelled… intense. Crisp Pear, Apple Butter, Sandalwood Vanilla, Cinnamon Chai, and Black Tea don’t mix quite as well as one would think, when they linger in the air. In fact, all the combined scents gave me a massive headache for most of Sunday, so I took it pretty easy after that. I could hardly even knit!

So I spun a bit here and there instead. I even made time on Saturday to head out to the Rhode Island Spinner’s Guild monthly meeting. I haven’t been to a meeting in so long, but every time I actually get myself over there I’m always so glad I went. I don’t think there’s a lovelier, friendlier group of spinners around. Everyone is so welcoming and willing to share their knowledge, their fiber tools, and their skills. It’s wonderful. I highly recommend joining a group if you haven’t yet. It’s well worth making time for, even in the middle of this busy season.

Are you part of a guild or knitting/spinning group? If not, what’s holding you back?

  1. I joined the Brazos Valley Knitting Guild here in TX and love every meeting. We had a christmas party last week and it was so fun. I love seeing a little behind the scenes peek at your bars-in-progress. So glad to hear you’re selling so many!


  2. A yarn harlot mention? Congrats. That is super awesome.

    My goodness, I haven’t spun in so long. I really need to get back to it. But I do have my regular knit night. It’s just so much fun to have people who understand your need for yarn/ fiber and to have help figuring out what to do with it.


  3. Those all sound so yummy šŸ™‚ Especially the sandlewood vanilla…yum. I’m part of a couple knitting groups and the knitting guild here is fantastic šŸ™‚ I’m trying to get more involved!
