Mustard Seed Yarn Lab

I did it! I’m in business! I dyed almost all my yarn and finally managed to get it uploaded into my Etsy shop. If you’d like to see the shop, go ahead and click here.

It’s taken a longer time than I thought to get off the ground, but I blame the holidays and a suddenly incredibly busy work schedule filled with lots of overtime. I’m hoping life will calm down now and I can make some more (and sell some too!)

Christmas was wonderful. Christmas with a four year old boy is just magical and FUN!

I made the Bella mittens for my sister for Christmas. They were a pretty quick, fun knit, and I might do them again sometime.

The pattern can be found here. Emmet liked them.

And remember the Ribbed For His Pleasure hat I was making? My friend Ben received it from his wife on Christmas morning and he loved it! Here he is showing it off  🙂

I’ve also almost finished knitting the Gaptastic cowl and I’ve started the BeeKeeper’s quilt. Yes people, I’m knitting a quilt. I expect to finish it in a couple years. It’s a great idea really. You use all your leftover sock yarn to make it…I have lots of that! Nothing goes to waste.

Well, it’s late. I’m tired. I’ve been staring at this computer ALL day and I just want to go read my book now (A Game of Thrones…I love it.) I’ll try to be better about making more frequent posts now that life is calming down. Really.   😉



  1. I did not see over the rainbow on the site. Is it going up? You did a great job on the pics of the yarn. Crime Scene is correctly named – its a steal!! LOVE Victorian Wallpaper. Congratulations Sis!! Good Job!!

    Thanks Shelly! Over the Rainbow is actually called Lucky Charms. It’s there. It looks more green and yellow than I had hoped…they’re the more dominant colors in that skein. Yes, and I think Victorian Wallpaper is my favorite too.

  3. i think the beekeeper’s quilt is the coolest thing i’ve seen in a long time!! what a fantastic idea! can’t wait to see yours!

      I agree! I’ve had my eye on it for quite some time now but I didn’t want to start anything until all the Christmas projects were done. So far I have 3 hexipuffs done. Each one takes me about an hour.
