After a Long Absence...

I have not posted a single thing since September! I am sure you will believe me if I say I have been busy. I mostly tried to keep up with orders, and helped our oldest daughter reach her dreams. She always was a fabulous artist. I know I may be somewhat partial, but her paintings and sculptures take my breath away. Like me, she sees a world of colors and emotions. My husband and I decided to support her fully in her dream to become a painter and sculptor. We went through the college application process easily, but we sure kept busy! She has just been accepted to a wonderful art shool as a Junior with a Fine Arts major.

Overnight, life seems to have returned to normal. Homeschooling, dyeing yarn, and my favorite, creating new colors and patterns. I had to put a lot of my creative activities on hold during these busy months, but I am so happy to be back.

Sometimes, time pressures help you realize what it is that you really love, and miss. I missed creating. I missed creating new colorways so much, that I have decided to change things a little for Sockpixie's store. Every Sunday, at 6p.m. Eastern time, I will update the website with new colors. You will know how many are in stock and ready to go. So each Sunday night, it will be almost a surprise!
The first update will be this Sunday December 9.

The other part I missed tremendously was designing patterns. I will continue to post free patterns online, on the Sockpixie blog, and will also start publishing patterns for purchase.

That's it for the updates!
