Mythic Proportions

I decided I needed to change it up a little to not only liven up the Etsy side of the business, but to also make life a little easier. So I am introducing new colorways of mythic proportions!  You can find the new colors here:

The name sake of each new colorway is from Classic Greek or Roman Mythology or simple words or phrases. To find the meaning you can do a simple word search on the internet using a greek or or latin dictionary.  Of course, you could always knit or weave along in blissful ignorance of the colorway's name, but where is the fun in that!?!

And we are now dating our yarn so that dye lots can be more easily identified!  For example:  4/11 means the yarn was dyed on April of 2011.  Yarns dyed prior to 4/11 will not be dated.  Although the date might be the same, I would like to remind you that hand dyed yarn can vary greatly from skein to skein.  Needless to say, if you have a large project in mind for the yarn, I recommend alternating the skeins every other row;)


As a side note:  I would like to point out to my Mom & Dad .... See, I am FINALLY making good use of the 2 years in Highschool of Latin & in College 1 semester each of Latin & Greek terminology.  You know the 'dead languages' all thought I would have absolutely no use for?

Wow, some great colorways at work here....especially vae and caelestis! ( My daughter is teaching her children latin-I don't think it is a waste of anyone's time!)

I'll tell you. Latin actually does help with other languages. Not that I can speak any other languages, but I can understand most of what they are saying. I really think latin helped with that;)

My favorites so far are Caelestis and Orsus. Orsus unfortunately does not photograph well. It is stunning in person.

Other Fun Facts..................

I taught myself to knit by watching a woman while on a flight from Scotland to the USA in 1996.

I taught myself how to spin yarn Feb 15th, 2007. I think I've done fairly well:)

'Lunabud' is a combination of two dogs' names I was loved by, Buddy and Luna:)
