i am always interested in how other crafters and artists update their web stores. i kind of envy those who have the kind of work they can restock daily, just as i long to be one of those super organized crafters who has a set day of the week that almost always involves an update. for me, i dye + spin when time allows. i wash, dry, weigh, count yardage, photograph and label when it feels like i have a big enough "collection" to justify a site update. even though it's a little bit arbitrary, my groupings in the updates feel like they are part of a group, and although you might not be able to see anything cohesive within these monthly-or-so families of yarns, i can see what are probably some internal themes, my own shifting ways of seeing and putting together color and texture. they really do feel like little collections to me.
i updated my site today and have been thinking about the things that make these yarns feel like a grouping to me. there is a lot of falklands wool in this update; i have been really enjoying spinning this wool lately. i am also learning to not be afraid of an earthy palette. this might sound silly, but it has taken genuine effort on my part to feel comfortable abstaining from flashier colors. and i am liking what's coming out of the dyepot! even without hot pink or chartreuse!
of course, i haven't sworn off the bright stuff entirely.
