I was excited to learn this week that a local newspaper while covering the joys of alpacas highlighted the cranberry lace scarf that I listed on Etsy. The purchaser made me aware of an article published in the Boulder Daily Camera on March 11, 2011. The journalist Aimee Heckel spotlighted an alpaca store in Boulder, a fellow Etsian from Boulder who crochets items and our shop to her readers.
Needless to say this re emphasized my push to complete some projects so that photos can be taken and items listed this weekend. On that note I spun up the wool yarn for the scarf on hold which is now complete and needs to be washed and blocked. I also plied the red yarn to complete the custom gloves this weekend too. Currently working on the woven scarf from 100% alpaca yarn from ATAR which is turning out well.
Tomorrow will be spinning and I hope to start/finish a few headbands with my small batches of alpaca blended yarns for listing. My newest buyer is also interested in purchasing more scarves in the future. I am giving myself a month leeway to create this type of product and put a plug for holiday and future birthday shopping needs. I am so thankful for this unexpected piece of advertising and the positive feedback received on the items I create with so much love and joy. It is so nice to have one's works of art appreciated by strangers and a true boost of confidence on the talent front.
