Dyer Guest Post - Erica Roberts of In The Deep Hue Sea

For our Fall Ficstitches Yarns Kit Club, we are excited to be working with our friend and neighbor Erica. She actually lives just a few blocks away! Since we Profiled Erica a few years ago, I invited her to share her story with you in her own words...
A Dyers in Their Studios Update:
I’m Erica, dyer at In The Deep Hue Sea. I’ve been dyeing yarn since 2010 and dyeing full time for about 5 years now.

Only a Couple of Days Left to Preorder Your Fall Kit Club
featuring delicious DK weight Yarn from In The Deep Hue Sea!
Many things have changed since I started as a hobby, including growing our family. Last August we welcomed our 3rd baby, Indy, into the world. A handful of weeks after having her, as we were preparing our yarn for the Ficstiches Yarns club and Oregon Flock and Fiber Festival, we noticed our sweet baby wasn’t acting like herself.

We were being overly cautious and took her to the ER. That trip quickly turned in to a couple week stay for her. They never fully explained what was wrong, but luckily our baby was able to heal and she was released.
Since then my business has been put on the back burner. Dealing with a new baby, scary hospital stay, family, doctor appointments, health issues, there just wasn’t room for it all. While it’s been a challenging year it’s also been a wonderful year growing and enjoying time with my family.
Now that we are approaching one year since that all began, I am ready to get back into the game! I miss dyeing so very very much and while our lives have been full in other ways, I always have this inkling to create that wants to be in the forefront.

While my neighbors at Ficstiches Yarns don’t typically use dyers twice in such a short period of time, they so graciously chose me for their club yarn again this Fall! I am very excited to use this as a kicking off point to get back creating!
And we are excited to be working with her again, and this yummy DK weight superwash merino single ply yarn for our Fall Ficstitches Yarns Kit Club. Preorders end Wednesday July 31st, so don't miss your chance and Preorder Today!
