March Featured Etsyblogger - Dizzy Dragonflies



Isn't this the cutest picture? It's the avatar of our featured etsyblogger, Dizzy Dragonflies.

Vicki hand dyes 100% wool in her kitchen, and lists them in her Etsy shop. Most of the listings I saw included approx. 230 yards of yarn. But if you want enough material for a sweater, she will ship you a custom order. I don't knit myself, so her jargon was a bit confusing to me, but she has a rainbow of colors available.


Here's Vicki's blog banner. Didn't I tell you she had a variety of colors!?


I stopped by Ravelry, an online site Vicki belongs to, to see what it was like. There's a blog and database, and members can keep track of their yarn, tools, and pattern information. It looks like a great place for "knitters, crocheters, designers, spinners, and dyers."


I had the most fun, looking at Vicki's flickr page. There are so many different knitted products that she's made! Here's a collage from some of her photos - you can click on it, and link over to her page.
