No doubt about it, this has been a strange year. No arguments there, right?Perhaps, like me, you feel a bit like you're in a time warp. I know it's summer, the temperature definitely feels like summer, we've done a number of things we usually do every summer...but it still doesn't quite feel like
The "boys of summer" (MLB baseball) are just getting going, there are no church picnics, no summer blockbusters, no "come on over and we'll grill out" get togethers.BUT, there are summer colors!I've been busy, busy dying up a bunch of my favorite summertime colorways just because I want to extend the season a little longer. A little more fun-in-the-sun kinda feeling. (I've also added a few new ones, too!)This year - especially this year - I need a little more summer in my life. A few more weeks to feel carefree and casual. Anybody else?
Here are a few particulars:
This does mean I'll be pivoting a little bit on my plans for a special Christmas Sock Set - but, I've got a couple of ideas up my sleeve. I'm working out the details on that right now. So hopefully I'll be able to open the pre-order for that later in August.
But for right now...hello summer! Hello sunshine!

I'm Robin, the dyer and designer behind October House. You've found my blog, where I ramble on about yarn and knitting, stitching and sewing and anything else that catches my fancy!
I love quiet colors, gentle stitches and making things by hand.
