The House is a Rockin'

I was so excited last night that I couldn't sleep ! So what did I do?
Stayed up and finished my sock of course - all the while singin' and dancin' all over the place! The newest addition to the Sock Hop Yarn "Hall of Fame" is this sweet little gem - colorway "Say a Little Prayer".

You might ask why I couldn't sleep - well, Cara posted a blog about our Sock Hop Yarn, and we were flooded with emails the entire day (this is a wonderful dilemma to have !) A big hello to all you new visitors to my blog! :-)

K stayed up late packing boxes and the sock yarn is now winging its' way all around the world.
We are almost out of all the colorways as of this moment - but not to fear, Cheryl (our wonderous spinner!) is busy finishing up the next batch of colors. We are taking backorders for a little while, so please feel free to email me if you'd like to be added to that list.

We are also working as fast as we can to get this grand yarn up on our website. As soon as that happens, it'll be much easier for all of you to order. Thanks for your patience during this exciting new introduction! We LOVE this new yarn, and are tickled pink that you do too!! In the meantime, be sure to check out our line of Dicentra Designs hand dyed sock yarn - it's lovely.

On the home front -
it has been awhile since I captured our kitties on film - Miss Em and Lady Di have grown so big now.... and as you can see, they just love to "guard" the front door (heh heh)....... at this very moment outside, we had a most unusual "guest" ! (look carefully at the company who came calling just outside the glass sliding door !)

And one last picture - of Miss Em, who loves to 'hang out' with Dad while he's watching the news :-)

Lady Di and Miss Em are lovely! What did they think of that racoon?!

Cute kitties! I wish I wasn't allergic!

Congrats on the successful launch of Sock Hop! It is truly lovely!

I second Leah -- cute little kitties but I feel the need to sneeze just looking at them. I am so happy the Sock Hop stuff is going so well for you guys!!! Your Embossed Leaves sock looks great :o)

Congratulations on all the publicity. I read about you on Cara's blog today, so of course thought that would be a great advertisement!! Fantastic!

I love the cat photos! Especially the flat-draped-over-the-couch one!

The sock looks fantastic - great fit too. Boy - that seemed like it was a really fast knit - those needles must have been a flyin' to the rhythm of the music!

Congratulations on your Sock Hop - happy thoughts for continued success, Tey.

I used to have racoons who bred in our attic. The kits were tame enough to eat marshmallows out of my hand while mom coon sat beside me begging for a few for herself. Our cats never minded the company and they usually got along well.
Love the yarn by the way and your kitty girls are dolls.

Beautiful sock Teyani! Miss Em and Di are such cuties and you do such a good job of photographing them.

Your sock came out great! It was a perfect pattern to use with your new sock line.
Congratulations on your flood! Now that is the right kind of flood to have! ;)

Congrats on your success! I really like the new color. Of course, I am partial to nice greens.
