Making progress

Here is a photo of the new BBF skein label:




Looks great, eh? Thanks, M. Habit.

And then I filled these



with these



so the first shipment of the Sock Club could get on its way.

I like your labels, both the yarn and blog entry category. Tell me, who wouldn't have a crush on Franklin??

mindy said...

Ohhh, very envious of Sock Club members! I know the Fiber Club rovings will be just as spectacular, though. So I'll be patient. Nice labels- can't wait to see some in person. And ditto Rachel on crushes on Franklin.

Carol said...

Fab labels but, of course, they would be. Can't WAIT for my shipment. I know you crossed info out but I'm sure I saw the beginnings of Auburndale on one of those packages. Mine!!

Joe said...

Okay...I have had just about enough. Franklin, Franklin, Franklin!....argh!

I think QueerJoe has become the Jan Brady of homo knit bloggers.

Franklin's so talented. Franklin's so creative. Franklin's so hot.
Franklin's so funny.

It's so painful watching a queen grow old and bitter right before your very eyes...isn't it?

Carol said...

I'm sure you can retain the title of Dowager Queen....

Chelsea said...

Yay! I am excited! It will be my first yarn of the new year (vacation yarn doesn't count, right?).

Bridget said...

Queer Joe = Jan Brady nearly put me over the edge! Poor Jan, er Joe, er, whoever ... :-)

Those are mighty nice labels ... obviously Delores did not have input.

Carol said...

I suspect if Dolores helped, you'd find it had a hastily scrawled drawing of sheep va-jay-jay, or some such.

While you're attending to design details, how about adding a shop ID pic (avatar, whatever it's called) to your Etsy shop? When I call up my Etsy list of Favorite Sellers, there is an empty white box next to BBF, in contrast to all the other sellers. (Your shop offerings do show up in the Etsy Favorite Sellers list, though.)

Carol said...

Hey, Lynne, thanks! I didn't know about that...

Franklin said...

Me, I have a crush on Joe. And Carol. It's all so sordid, isn't it?

Lynne E. said...

Yay, it's fixed! And with some mighty pretty yarn.

Barb B. said...

Well, Joe, Franklin might be cute and funny and talented BUT he can't spell. He made the exact same spelling mistake he made with me. F-i-b-r-e. For heavens sake Franklin!
All looking very cool and professional Carol.
(Really Franklin, lovely job)

Just ordered your last skein of the superwash merino from your etsy sight. Because I need more sock yarn like I need a hole in my head. But I was reading your post about pricing and wanted to compare to other hand dyed sock yarns I buy.

Carol said...

It's here!! The yarn is drop dead gorgeous!! Luminous! Stunning! Have already swatched and can't wait to cast on with it. Many thanks Carol! xx

Carol said...

p.s. Is the bigger yarn label meant to balance out the most extremely tiny (been watching too much Charlie & Lola) business/calling card? xxx
