#yarnlovechallenge2019 Day 17 is Nature! Here is beautiful Suri alpaca in it's natural state! Look at that fineness and luster! Then there is the incredible way it feels! Mom always calls it "heaven in my hands"! And when we dye it, it is glorious! This is what my mother and I fell in love with! #knittersofinstagram #luxuryyarn #suri #alpaca
#yarnlovechallenge2019 day 15 = "weekday"! Which is funny because I don't notice any difference between weekend and weekdays except when my grandkids come to the farm everyother weekend! Those are the best weekends! Crazy, insane and exhausting but SO WONDERFUL! And they (all 3 grandkids) love to explore the farm in different ways!
#yarnlovechallenge2019 day 14="yarnlove"! Well obviously we're love our yarns and haven't found a yarn we love more! But, what we love even more is our stockists! So here is a big hug to all the wonderful LYSs that stock our yarns! We love you all! Happy Valentine's Day! #knittersofinstagram #luxuryyarn #suri #alpacas
#yarnlovechallenge2019 Day 13=Motif! Not sure where to go with this one. We're have typically not done color work. Not due to dislike, just not capable. However we have always planned our colors with a motif. Sometimes it's been a work of art, but we finally felt the need to settle on a selection of jewels and flowers! From "Bachelor Button Blue" to "Black Opal" we have been drawn to the colors we see in nature! And we have an amazing expansive array of colors available in our yarns, 21, to be precise! So i guess our motif is COLOR, all of nature's colors! #knittersofinstagram #luxuryyarn #suri #alpaca #suris #woman
I don't have any great pictures for #yarnlovechallenge2019 day 11-pack! Although I've been doing alot of packing lately! I've been traveling to Manhattan where my grand- daughter loves my project bag and I've been packing up packages for our newly hired yarn reps across the country! Very excited to have these professionals sharing our LGF Suris Yarns across the country!
#yarnlovechallenge2019 day 9=draft. I am truly at a loss with this one! I don't write patterns or have any reference to a draft! So here's the proposed"draft"of an exciting new pattern coming out soon in our LGF Suris Mini Skeins! #knittersofinstagram #surisock #luxuryyarn

#yarnlovechallenge2019 Day 6 = challenging. The thing I find most challenging about being a woman/ small business owner/ independent dyer and therefore responsible for the survival of said business is the need for self- promotion and constant attention to the image of the business. It can be exhausting and sometimes leads to periods of depression or self-doubt. But with the support of my husband and all of my family and friends we continue to thrive! Thank you! #dyersofinstagram #knittersofinstagram #luxuryyarn #suri #surialpaca
