Server Slowness

As you may have noticed, the server I was on for the last couple of months was getting a little slow. After the log jam during the shop update yesterday, when I couldn’t even get on the site to add items, let alone allow people to purchase them, which is the name of the game around here, I packed up and moved to a new server overnight. The DNS settings need to propagate before the secure portions of the shop work properly. My email is also affected- they may bounce. Don’t worry about info being secure or anything- if you try to go to a secure page and the settings still haven’t caught up, you’ll get an error page. I’ll make another post when things get sorted.

I’m sorry for the hassle! Hopefully, this will solve the slowness problem. It seems to be. The blog is loading lickety-split.


Shop Update Today

It’s just a wee one. Today at 2pm EST, here.

We have Sock, Fat Sock, and hand-dyed spinning fiber from me, plus Merino laceweight and handspun goodness from Sarah of Maisy Day Handspun. You can see it all here before you shop here.


I’ll be back tomorrow with a Tomten sleeve. My short-rowed shoulder (instructions from Jared) worked out beautifully. Jared, the Tomten and I love you! Poor Jared. I have to flatter him (kiss his ass, whatever!) because he’s done with his jacket and has been waiting for me to finish mine FOREVER. What a peach!


Fiber Club

Membership for the August-October Hello Yarn Fiber Club is open now to returning members. You’ve all got spots reserved. Please purchase your membership by next Monday so I know how many slots to open up to new members. If you want to join but can’t this week, please let me know so I can make arrangements.

Membership will be open to new members next Monday, the 16th, bright and early at 10 am EST. If you are a new member, please wait until next Monday to purchase your membership. I will return your payment and cancel your membership if you are naughty and order early. I’ll remind you here on the blog when memberships become available.

Current fiber club members, your wool for this month will ship next week. I hope you love it!

Shop Update:

There will be a small shop update tomorrow. Sarah from Maisy Day Handspun sent hand-dyed lace weight yarns and some handspun, and I’ll have some Sock and Fat Sock available. We look forward to seeing you then.

Thank you all for the birthday wishes! I had a blast on my time off. Shoe shopping was done, fancy food was eaten, and I can now tell you that the new Die Hard movie is pretty damn good!
