The Blue Brick’s Yarn Bases

The Blue Brick’s Yarn Bases

We’re ready to ship! Everyone who ordered last Friday can expect their goodies very soon. I finally got my yarn tags in, which was the last bit I needed. I can’t express how happy it makes me to see this pile of Merrickville Gold with my yarn tags attached.


On that note, I’ve finalized my list of bases that the Blue Brick will carry on a regular basis. We’ve chosen to name each base after a place in Ontario that we love. It may be confusing at first, but we find it quite charming, and though we plan to branch out into photography from around the world, I wanted each skein to still have a connection to home.

As soon as all these goodies are in the mail, we will get dyeing again! Over the next few days I will feature each of my bases one at a time, with photos of the place that it’s named after :)
