And It’s Live! December 5, 2013

So after manymanymany attempts at photographing my yarn to get the colors to match (this included trying 3 or 4 different cameras–who knew it could be so tough to get turquoise to look like turquoise?), keeping my fuzzy photography  assistant out of the shots, spending hours on copy, and even more hours listing them on Etsy’s fab site, I am proud and excited to announce the opening of my new undertaking, Absinthe Yarn.

Thanks so much to those friends who’ve already taken a peek, “favorited,” and one dear pal who has even purchased a couple of skeins. And as a grand opening surprise, I will be added a special little gift to the first 5 purchases. Well, since I’ve had one sale already 🙂 there are 4 gifties left.

    I finally hightailed it over to Absinthe Yarns and ordered me a couple of lovely skeins of yarn. Why on earth did it take so long? I think it was the photo of your soft fuzzy assistant that convinced me — he really brings out the beauty of that yarn! I’ll be back for a few more colors that I should have ordered the first time ’round. Can’t wait!
