We're moved into our new house finally! Upgrading to 3 bedrooms from one really is exciting. This is my craft room. A whole room just for crafts!!! Obviously we're not done unpacking yet but I can totally imagine how it'll be!
The best part and actually one of the main reasons we moved is for this:
Just a little shed but its home to me
The dye studio! Right off my back porch. NOT in my house! Can you tell how excited I am?
It still needs to be fixed up and have all spiders anhilated but soon I will be dyeing all the time. Making the biggest mess I can and not having to worry about my mom's carpet or the apartment walls!

In celebration of this great new development in Starbugknits, I'll be having a contest and a sale starting sometime next week(I need time to unpack:)

Staytuned and you won't be sorry!

I'm not going to apologize for not blogging but I will show you some of what I've been doing.

Moving day got moved up a month(which is something we wanted) BUT we also have to get the new house painted and ready to go. Our current landlord want us out ASAP so they can get in here and get the apartment ready for the new guy. As soon as the new carpet is installed, we'll be hauling some stuff over there, but we're not sure what day our actual move will be.

Which means, there is a general purge of crap going on at our house. I'm trying to destash some yarn, too. SO much is stuff I need for Christmas, etc. This is the current state of our bedroom(I'm almost embarrassed to show it). There are boxes, laundry, sewing projects, and shoes EVERYWHERE! AHHHHH!!!!! I'm really looking forward to organizing everything afresh at the new place( I know, right?)

In fiber related news, we attended the PA Endless Mountain Fiber Festival. I give it a "meh". It was small which is okay but it just felt really disorganized. I did manage to find some pretty yarn though.

Farmhouse Yarns "Summerspun" Silk, cotton, lambswool. 700 yards in cranberry. My mother-in-law LOVES it. Maybe Christmas?!?!

I'm looking forward to Rhinebeck in a few weeks. I'm making some tote bags for my mom and me to carry around. I have to put all that stuff away because I know I'll start working on them when I'm supposed to be packing!

Hopefully next time I blog I'll be in my new office and can share pics of the new dye studio!

Oh yeah, go check out my yarn already! There won't be any update until after the move and I'd like to get some of my first batches sold!

I always seem to be in a rush lately. Today, I have to squeeze in a quick run to the supermarket before I begin dyeing which I have to finish before 3.

No pictures today, I'm afraid. The knitting I'm working on now is for Christmas and I'm also designing a kit for my shop. Its a first-- secret knitting on the blog.
The weasley sweater is going good. I finished the body and now I have to find a tutorial online for knitting two sleeves at once on two circulars. I think I get the concept but just need to make sure.
What a boring post! Better one on Monday, I promise. We're heading to the PA Fiber Festival on Saturday and I'm sure I'll have SOMETHING to show you then.

'Til Monday then. Look forward to a shop update soon!
