For every day I take time off - be it for a retreat or the recent 4th of July holiday, I have to make up for it by working extra days before or after. It's been par for the course for many years now, and I'm grateful for my family to have adapted ... but I won't lie, I do miss being able to go on the occasional outing on a weekend when my husband isn't working.

I swear that packing to work up at the mountain house for just one day is about as hard as it used to be to get out of the house with a toddler and a newborn. #doginthebacktoo #binsandbagsyoucantsee #ifeellikeatransient #thestruggleisreal #lifeofadyer

When colour gets applied it's pure magic! #zenyarngarden #handdyedyarn #handdyedyarn #lifeofadyer #yarn

While I was busy playing Yarn-Tetris, James was hard at work tagging ALL the yarn while watching the latest episode of #criticalrole on Geek & Sundry. #lifeofadyer #nerdsandknitters #indiedyer #intothewhirled

The art of tie dye. This is why we're addicted. Great little video by @debbeewebbee #lifeofadyer #tiedye #inthestudio #textileartist

Stink face. Giving it to paypal again (when am I not?) because the club subscription buttons weren't working and I can't talk to them due to the holiday. So the buttons are down until I can get them fixed. Sorry for the confusion! So much for starting my year off serenely and without my old nonsense. #lifeofadyer

Custom dye jobs are my favourites. This one was very challenging (darks always are for me), but I love the result! It's going to be a simple, classic Pullover for Mr Penguin. #yarnvszombies #lifeofadyer #knitallthethings #manpullover

I did it! Two new colour-ways inspired by my previous post! Don't know if they will be released in the world yet, but I will for sure be dying myself some! On the left - "key lime" and on the right, "Maui". #babyclothes #babycolours #handmaidenfineyarn #lifeofadyer #fleeceartist #cottagesock

Did my nails yesterday because I was bored and because I was tired of looking a dyed nails...πŸ˜‚ I should probably start wearing gloves when I dye my yarn...lol 2 coats of ORLY Color Blast in Happy Puddle with a topcoat of Sinful Colors in Frenzy. It kind of looks like a bunch of stars in space...😊 #lifeofadyer #nails #nailpolish #orlycolorblast #sinfulcolors #itssosparkly

Sundara is one of my favorite dyers, and in fact was the inspiration for me to start dyeing myself. I just treated myself to one of her recent gradient sets and am now happily researching possible projects. This is her Fingering Silky Merino, and I have three skeins with 560 yards each. So 450gms, 1680 yards total.

Thank you so much for all the love you've given to Mahalo 😊. I feel humbled and thankful πŸ˜ƒβž°πŸ’™βž°πŸ˜ƒ. It's still 20% off. Click the link in my bio.

A slow spin, I feel, but so enjoyable. I'm so new at this idk...do I wash it and set it before plying as well as after? And should I just spin another bobbin of this to ply it with? Someone help me πŸ˜­πŸ˜­πŸ˜­πŸ˜­πŸ˜„πŸ˜ #spinna #fiberart #fiber #newbie #indiedyer #lifeofadyer #spinnersofinstagram #knittersofinstagram #crochetersofinstagram #instahappy

Emergency road trip to Central Oregon with the bestie. Had to stop in Portland on the way back. Saw Brooklyn Tweed (closed) . Still not home for about 3 more hours. So tired. Lol

Working on my two-at-a-time self-striping shocks whilst enjoying the sights and sounds of Kailua Town Farmers Market day!

My princess and me. Got her to be brave enough for a few rides. Lol. Love a small town carnival/fair!! Feels like home. #lifeofadyer #indiedyer #smalltowncarnival #carnival #fair #portorchard #lovethislife

The very last skeins of Beautiful DK in Marrakech are going out! Many heartfelt thanks again to Andrea of @thisknittedlife for her beautiful design Blast Off To The Sun! Here's to sun-drenched shawls and happy knitting β˜€οΈπŸ’•

There's nothing quite as nice as knitting with a friend. Turning the heel with eye of partridge, which I love love love with variegated yarn. Using self-striping is a wee bit less interesting than I thought it would be. And of course mistakes are more obvious 🀣

I cast on and did the cuff yesterday in about an hour's time. So today I can vanilla knit my heart out! #nomadicyarns #indiedyer #instahappy #lifeofadyer #knittingaddict #knittersofinstagram #crochet #crochetersofinstagram #content

Obligatory drinking pic brought to you by: ripping this quilt top apart. Ugh argh and Fffff***!!! It will be ok again soon. Well, as soon as this Root beer takes effect. Lol.
