Tis all gone...

... except the yellow. Nobody likes the yellow. Aww.... Is there a more emotive colour in the spectrum? You either love it or hate it and if you hate it, there's a good chance you love purple instead - opposite on the colour wheel you see. (Update: the Banana Cream Pie has now gone to a good home).

I'm thinking about ways to make the shopping experience more pleasant and the common opinion (in the Skein Queenery group in Ravelry) seems to be that random updates supported by a general email and a blog preview at the start of the week when I'm updating is the way to go to avoid a frustrating frenzy. It's also a wake-up call that I need to dye up more skeins in the same colourway instead of getting into the workshop and just letting the creative spirit take over leaving all sense at the door! I'm also thinking of resuming custom orders perhaps once a month or every second month - but, hold your horses - I'll need to evaluate this very carefully as to how to fit it into the dyeing schedule, how to monitor stock and dyes, and come up with a few more guidelines than I had previously.

It is lovely to think that so many people want to buy and knit with my yarn. I am very lucky - and thank you for your ongoing support - I just want to keep the buying process as fair and as stressless as possible for anyone who wants to sample the royal yarnyness.
