I am coming out of hibernation! I think I was in crafting overload after Christmas. I tried to keep connected to the crafting community, but eventually I just stopped doing any crafts for a few months. Slowly, I am getting back into it and my spirit is renewing.
Today, I would like to introduce you to Highland Handmades. (I feel I should disclose that the proprietor/fiberista, Heather, is a very beautiful friend of mine.) Highland Handmades features yarns and fibers that are creatively dyed by Heather's hands. Also, you can find handmade drop spindles, that are crafted by Heather's talented and supportive husband.
My favorite color is green and I have a lovely skein of Heather's "The Greener Side" colorway in fingering weight sock yarn. It is 100 grams, a generous 462 yards, 75% SW Merino & 25% Nylon of squooshy goodness. This skein is waiting for Heather to finish her latest sock pattern so that my needles can enjoy the fibery goodness too.Next, I have some incredible 50/50 SW Merino/Tencel blend in Heather's "Neptune" colorway. It drafts like a dream and has incredible shine that a picture just doesn't do justice.
Do your stash a favor and head over to Highland Handmades and check back there often. I don't think she really sleeps, because amazing new colorways keep materializing from the recesses of her incredible mind. Also, she is one of the busiest ladies I know with "regular" jobs, PLUS her fibery business AND a podcast. Yes, she even does a podcast. You can get to know Heather better, learn how she is growing her business, and be tempted by her latest creations if you go check out "The Fiberista Files".
