This weekend I reached what I consider to be a great milestone: 500 followers on Instagram! I am so thankful for all of the support I have received on social media lately.


I was able to score some Easter Egg dyeing kits on clearance to use for dyeing fiber, and I am excited to try out some new colors and dyes. Once I get more experience with dyeing, my next goal is to try acid dyes.


I am enjoying this new adventure into dyeing, because it has given me more freedom to work on personal knit and crochet projects. I have missed being able to make things I want to make, rather than trying to find the next best thing to sell. As always, I am happy to do custom orders, but I see the future of Kounting Sheep Designs being a place for fiber enthusiasts to come shop. Thank you for following along this journey with me, and I look forward to seeing what the rest of 2015 will bring!


I posted a few weeks ago about this blanket I was knitting. Now that it’s finished, I can’t help but think about how cozy it is. There’s just something about a chunky cable throw that says to me cold weather and wrapping up in it with a cup of hot tea; in a word, comfort. I can’t wait for someone to buy this blanket, now available in my Etsy shop.

Comfort is a word I go back to over and over again when I’m making things for others. Sometimes nothing else will do except a handmade blanket or shawl to wrap yourself up in when you need a little comfort.
