Well folks, here’s the second spring for the northeast, I can’t believe autumn 2019 is here. Seems like I was just planting new flowers outside, enjoying the long days, shorts, sandals, and of course, no cold weather. Now autumn is here and it’s let’s see how much can I get done outside before it gets dark. I’ll admit, I do love the colors of these trees I managed to take pictures of while I was doing errands the last two weeks. It’s funny when your driving how long it takes for a red light to turn green before you go. Managed to grab a few quick snapshots with the long red lights I had while driving to some places. Want to grab a few more photos while I’m driving before all the leaves fall off the trees. Lots of nice trees changing in Colonie New York and Niskayuna New York. I’ll be hitting Amsterdam New York, Johnstown New York, and Gloversville New York in the next week or two when I set up my polymer clay jewelry at The Micropolis Cooperative Art Gallery in Gloversville, New York. Can’t wait to show you.
I’m amazed at how summer has come and gone so fast and now look at what’s here, Autumn. Grabbed this photo of this holly bush walking the other day with the some of the leaves turning red and most of them are still green. Autumn is still warm, though with the leaves changing colors, I know the warm weather won’t be here much longer. With enjoying the end of summer, cleaning up outside, working on new material, it’s been crazy the last couple of weeks.
Discovering the endless possibilities with polymer clay and liquid polymer clay, I ordered a special silicone mold with a hole on the top to make pendants. This pendant looks like sea glass, but it’s liquid polymer clay. I currently working on a line of pendants that look like sea glass, but they’re made with liquid polymer clay. I also taking my drawing to a whole new level with greeting cards. Watching these items come alive in the next couple of weeks.

Goodbye Where’sTheYarn?, hello lmprock on my website, my etsy shop, my Facebook fan page, and on my art group. I feel like ever since I’ve been posting all these great things on my blog, my title did not suit me as well as it should. I thought wanted to just focus on knit, crochet, and yarn shops but starting another blog for me felt like more work and readers bouncing back and fourth from a personal blog to a business blog. Not to mention I have a wonderful and creative life and would like to share. See more on my blog and group.
UPDATE ON WHERE’S THE YARN?
Hello October, just to let everyone know, I changed both my blog title and domain to Lauren Prock. With moving our shop on Upper Union Street back home, wanting to talk more about just my knit, crochet, polymer clay, I figured it would be best to change the website/blog to my name. My Etsy shop will remain as Where’s The Yarn, for that’s my business name and the product I work on. I’ve already been posting all these great things on my blog, I just felt that having my own name would be best.
It’s official, Fall is actually here. Leaves changing colors, shorter days, colder days, wearing layers of clothing, and bundling up with some new scarves by Lauren at Where’s The Yarn? I’ve currently working on new scarves for Sow’s Ear Studio and my Etsy shop. All scarves are $45/each. Scarves are made with yarn of all kinds including soft wool, cotton yarn, and worsted yarn. Each scarf will have a different kind of stitch. Stitches include single crochet stitch, half double crochet stitch, slip stitch, and other various types of stitches that I’m learning about along the way. I’m also adding some fringe and fancy edges to my scarves when they’re completed. All scarves are machine washable and can be placed in the dryer on low heat. Buy an early holiday gift with a handmade scarf with my “BLACK FRIDAY SALE” on Thursday November 24th-December 11th, 2016.
My other goal is to not buy anymore yarn until the yarn I currently have is all used up. No more buying yarn at Michaels and Herrschners. My two favorite places to purchase yarn and burn a hole in my pocket. I’ve got so much yarn to work with, I need to create some new designs for home and wearing.
Every time I see a new color of yarn, I always think of what I can make with it. Well now I’ve decided to just create some new things with what I’ve got and then when I start to run low on my current yarn inventory, I’ll start to buy more. Until then, you’ll see all the yarn that I currently have both at home and at Sow’s Ear Studio. Both of these scarves will be added to my Etsy shop on November 1st, 2016.
