Something else that I should have said last time that I’ll say here instead – obviously, because of the nature of dyes in general (and natural dyes in particular) each batch is slight different, even when the recipe is the same. I have controls set up, for comparison, but if a particular colour is significantly different from a previous batch, I give it a new name make it a limited edition. That way people know what they’re getting.

 

To that end, I’m also going to take pictures of all new stocking coming in, rather than re-using photos of previous batches of the same colour.

 

I’m planning to build a light box next week, take photos of the stock still waiting to go into the shop, and retake some photos of the current stock (in particular ‘DK Butter’). All new photos will be date marked, so that you can be sure what you’re looking at is what you’re going to receive through the post.

 

A HUGE THANK YOU for all the people who wish me well. I really appreciate it. 🙂

 

(In knitting news Tatami galloped along and I’m going to block it tonight, with the hope of getting it sewn up tomorrow, ready to wear to the do at my friend’s house on Saturday. I just have to chain stitch the ties tonight. Hopefully I’ll have photos next week to show you. 🙂

  1. Yay it’s all so exciting! The shop looks great and I can’t wait to see the finished Tatami next week.

    Right – I’m off outside to listen the new Cast-On and finish my Mum’s socks so I can get back to knitting with the Oxford Kitchen Yarns yarn!

    1. Thank you!

      My tatami is all done, and i’ll bring it with me to knitting.
