I have been dyeing and labeling and packing up yarn for Rhinebeck like crazy. My laptop came back from "my" computer guy in tip top shape on Monday, and boy was I ever glad to have my little machine back! Still, I remain the lame blogger.
Here are a few snapshots I took during packing up yesterday and today.

Anyway, here finally are some Embers! I know some of you have been waiting for this colorway very patiently...

Do you feel like jumping into the mediterranean sea?

This new colorway represents a whole new story that is unfolding! I was approached by a pattern designer on ravelry who donates all of her profits to charity. Her Christmas design will go to Doctors without Borders. I dyed her a batch, and she really liked it. Meanwhile, I thought: this is it! I love dyeing yarn so much. But it would add just a whole other dimension, an added purpose for me if I could do some good with it, too!! Thus, I decided to Dye for Charity, and the new CRANBERRY RED for Doctors without Borders was born!
From here on out, for every skein of this color I dye and sell, I will donate $3.- to DwB. Unfortunately I only had time to dye 35 skeins of this this week, to take to Rhinebeck with me. If I have any left, I will put them up on etsy when I come back on Sunday.
Otherwise, there will be more after I come back from Germany. Do you think you'll be able to wait?

I'll see you on the other side of the Nor'easter that's starting to hit, and Rhinebeck. We're the Sliver Moon Farm booth, spot # 27A 3. I hope I got that right. You better check the program, if you're coming to visit!!! Which I hope you will!!!!!!
