Felicity – A New Yarny Cakes yarn

Things have been busy with the Yarny Cakes family so I’ve been away a bit. Miss Emme is really starting to get this rolling over thing down and she has shifted her bedtime so I’ve had to adjust my routine a bit. Ultimately this means that my naptime ninja act that was so successful in the mornings is now a bit limited as she wakes up earlier. Clearly I need to fall back and regroup – I’ve been a bit out of sync since we returned from our long road trip. Time to get it together, but I am at Miss Emme’s whim so I am following her lead!

That being said, I have been steadily dyeing more yarn, but haven’t posted any delicious pictures for a while. I have quite a few skeins that need ti be re-skeined and they’ll be ready to go.

I had wanted to get all of the previously dyed yarns sorted out and up in the shop before delving into my newest line of yarn.   I have missed dyeing yarn and think that tomorrow is as good a day as any to dive in!

The new line features a sock weight yarn consistibg of superwash merino, cashmere, and nylon – (yum!) – still deciding on the name.  Somehow I ended up with names relating to happiness so I’ll stick with that. The front runner is felicity. Now I just need to decide on colors. I have been playing around with solids, but for these darlings, I may go back to my beloved variegated. Oh the possibilities!

In keeping with the Yarny Cakes name, I have also been baking a bit. My friend asked me to bake something for her yard sale and she didn’t have a preference on flavor. Mr. YarnyCakes recommended straight up vanilla on vanilla, but I thought that would be to boring so I stuck with the vanilla cake, but whipped up a raspberry white chocolate buttercream. For kicks, I topped each one with a sugared fresh raspberry. I leave you with the sneak peek pic I sent to my friend while the sugared raspberries were drying.

And we’re back!

The Yarny Cakes family enjoyed a lovely weekend visiting with family. Miss Emme was a trooper during her first car ride and only had a couple major meltdowns during the 26 hour roundtrip adventure. She was quite happy to be home yesterday and is relaxing. If not for her doctor’s appointment this morning, she would be having what I refer to as a not-real-baby-person-day which occurs when she wears jammies all day, haha.

Also back is the Yarny Cakes Etsy store! Before leaving last week, I finished dyeing all of the semi-solid yarns and created draft listings for them. Now I just need to re-skein and photograph each one and they’ll be ready to go! Here is a sneak peek of them together!
