I am not accepting custom requests at this time. I will stock on Hyena Cart as I have openings available.

ooops! one more thing!

Please go check the wonderful benefit going on at Tiny Lady Cooperative. It's running until Nov. 4th. My heart is heavy, but I was so glad to be able to partake in the auctions. Kim from WSK dyed up some beautiful yarn to match the adorable Wild West print Goodmama. I'll be knitting up the yarn custom for the highest bidder. Here is the collaboration I am part of. All proceeds from the benefit go toward a college fund for Colleen's children. You can read about Colleen here. Rest in peace Colleen.

Before I unplug

Tomorrow is moving day! Why am I sitting here blogging? (shhh, I'm avoiding my work and procrastinating!) I still have quite a bit to do. Ya know all that little stuff? Drives me nuts! I am *this close* to just chucking it. I think I might.

So I'll probably be offline for a couple days and pretty tied up with getting situated. Again to recap - we're moving in with my husbands very generous parents for a few months while we sort out where we'll be looking to buy, rather than rushing in to something. I'm hoping to get in the groove of things pretty quickly and will hop right back in my customs list and clean that out. The list will remain closed until that happens. Once I reopen in January I'll have a new approach to DWK and hope to actually STOCK my hyena cart. What a concept! Ha! I think that will be my New Year's resolution! That was easy. And it usually takes me so long to think of something.

I had a little time in between organizing and packing up that I took advantage of to knit Liam some woolies. Finally! He deserves some love too, right?

I had lots of scraps leftover so I made him some Scrappy Woolies. What fun! I am in love with how they came out!





I totally slacked on getting this photo up, but here is Three Irish Girls "Nora" that I knit up for a great lady! I'm so digging the ruffle like that.



Also finished up these. Dashing Dach's Guppy. I am in looooove with Stallion Merino. I need more! *drooool*






Well we'll see you when we get there!

Fox!

The last custom from iCrave has been finished and sent out the door today! Western Sky Knits "Foxes" colorway (which I'm in loooooove with and will be knitting some of it up for my own little dude!) This is dyed by Kim on WSK's yummy BFL Rodeo yarn. Yummmm! So soft and a quick knit.




The lighting is a little better in the second picture, which I took yesterday. :)

Going forward from here will be interesting! I have 2 more weeks in our home before we move in with my in-laws for a time while we figure out where to go from here since MT fell through (sob!). Before moving (with all my spare time!) I hope to complete Nora and possibly one other custom - Sushi Sonnets or Ellowen. I still have to pack and with Mr. Dwell's crazy work schedule it's pretty much on my shoulders and the little dudes are better at scattering things rather than organizing. So thanks for baring with me!

Woodland Goodness!

I'm in love!!! Morwenna is amazing - I swear she rocks my socks off. This is Mosaic Moon's "Woodland Tale." Remember that fun stocking on iCrave a couple weeks back? I finished up the first longies for the set done with the amazingly talented Shannon from Flip, Skip, Jump. I just adore the little ruffle that says "just girly enough!" So Steph, they'll be on their way tomorrow!

"Squash Blossoms"

What a cute name, "Squash Blossoms"! I just have to smile when I say it. This yarn was dyed by Candypants Yarn - what a neat colorway! Totally perfect for fall. This yarn was sent to me by a customer to knit up. Here I thought they could ship tomorrow - but shoot! It's Columbus Day! So they will go out first thing Tuesday for you mama!



I am having a time with my camera lens. It's the zoom lens and is sloooow - it's hard not to get a blurry shot - I think I want to try to reshoot these tomorrow since they can spend another day with me. My regular 35-55mm lens is in with Nikon being repaired. *cry* I should get it back in a couple more weeks. They said a month and it already feels like forever.

Well we'll see how productive I am the next few days. Mr. Dwell Wool is away fishing for a few days. He deserves the break (I guess...) so it's just me with the little dudes (and our monstrous man-eating dog if anyone is thinking about visting!) . The evenings are nice and quiet, which is lovely. I'm not being tortured with the usual barrage of sports every night that seem to ALWAYS be on. Not that I can't root for our home team, I'll jump on the bandwagon, but I'm not so much into the sports watching if I can help it. ;) Just me and Heroes tomorrow night. Can't wait!

What else? Oooh! I have to share how this lovely yarn is knitting up. This is Mosaic Moon's "Woodland Tale." I am loving seeing this take shape! I also cast on Western Sky Knits "Foxes" dyed by Kim. I'm going back down to continue working on it now! Thanks for being patient all you wonderful customers!

Summer Storm

Finally this custom for a wonderful friend and WAHM is complete! She sent this lovely yarn for me to knit into some girly ruffled longies. Forever ago we did a trade and she was just beyond patient in waiting for these.

The colorway is Summer Storm dyed by Colleen of Spiffy Knits. I feel blessed to have touched some fiber dyed by Colleen's hands. While I don't know Colleen personally, I know she has touched the lives of many. She has been diagnosed with a rare form of liver cancer on October 28, a benefit will take place at Tiny Lady Cooperative, where she worked alongside many talented WAHM's on Hyena Cart. My heart goes out to Colleen and her family and I can only encourage you to visit the benefit and help to celebrate Colleen.

A custom colorway and a change of plans

This colorway was is probably one of my favorites I've ever done! I just love the effect of the flecks of color throughout. The yarn was dyed by Joyce of Elliebelly. Just lovely I think. It was hard to truly capture the depth of all the colors. The photo of them folded up probably captures it most accurately.





Well I was hoping to be further along in my customs. It's just one thing that is really hard to predict in advance! But I'm close! I have two pair left to finish before I get to the two I have slated for October. This month is going to be very busy for us with the move.

Speaking of the move... I am crushed to share this, but this is the best place to do it. We are still moving, but not to Montana right now. With the given state of the economy and the field my husband works, it is too much of a gamble to relocate and branch off of his company right now. Where does that leave us? Well our home has sold... So we will be moving in with my husbands parents for a short time to see how things play out. We still plan to make the move and just consider it delayed right now. It's terribly disappointing, but I feel extremely blessed and fortunate to be able to lean on his parents right now.
