I really really really like the turquoise and brown yarn. I might take you up on this and buy some . . . I'm just a little short on money now . . . but hopefully I will be starting a new job soon!! So, I'll send you an order soon hopefully.

You are an excellent dyer (LOL . . . is that a word?)

The colors on Geisha are just so vibrant! I just love your choice of names too. Very creative. I hope you keep dyeing, you're doing a great job so far.

Charles, I LOVE the colourways!!! And you've beaten me to it, opening a yarn shop. I've been gruelling about it myself for the past 3 or 4 months, but just don't know how to start off! Congratulations for the great work! (Maybe I'll end up buying some handpainted yarn from you one of these days *LOL*)
