New Year 2022

Riihivillan toiminta lähestyy loppua ja jään kokonaan eläkkeelle helmikuusta alkaen. Nettikauppa sulkeutuu tammikuun lopulla. Jonkin verran on vielä lankoja jäljellä, ja väriaineita. Väriaineisiin laitoin alennuksia nyt loppuajaksi, ja vaikka värjäyskauteen on aikaa, niin nyt niitä kannattaa ostaa varastoon. Sain myös jonkin verran siemeniä omista väritattarista, ja ne ovat nyt kaupassa.

Blogi jää olemaan ja tänne onkin kertynyt aika paljon kokemuksia vuosien mittaan. Ehkäpä jatkan kokeiluja myöhemmin, ja varsinkin indigolla olisi vielä paljon annettavaa minulle, mutta aluksi nautin suunnattomasti siitä, että voin keskittyä täysin puutarhaan. Muutama kuukausi niin muuttolinnut tulevat ja kevätkukat nousevat maasta.:).

Suuret kiitokset blogini lukijoille ja asiakkaille menneistä vuosista, ja ihanaa jatkoa ja alkanutta vuotta kaikille!


IN ENGLISH

Riihivilla is coming to an end, and I am fully retiring in the beginning of February. Online shop closes at the end of January. There are still some yarns and kits available, but I don't know if they will last for the whole month. I have been asked if our mitten patterns will be available in Ravelry later, and I don't know yet. I will think about it.

My blog will stay here, and here are a lot of my experiences from past 15 years. Maybe I will continue experimenting with natural dyes later, and write more, especially indigo has still a lot to offer to me. Right now I am looking forward to spring and having all the time for my garden. Now it is snow and cold, but in couple of months the migrating birds will come and then all the spring flowers:).

Thank you so much, all my readers and customers for the past years, and I wish everyone a wonderful new year full of inspiring things.

    1. Hi Velma, and thank you so much! You are one of people who have followed my blog almost from the start, thank you for giving me inspiration.
      A book: some days I think that would be interesting, but most days I feel I don't know enough to write a book:). Much more experimenting and experiences are needed!
