Mug Shots

Now, way back in the deep, deep woods of Central Ontario, there stood amongst the overgrown weeds and scrub a lonely woodshed. As the story went, this was no ordinary, rickety ol’ woodshed – nosiree, far from it. Ah reckon that over the past seventy years or so, just about every family and generation of critter imaginable within a twenty mile radius has scrabbled through it, raised families there, hid from eagles, or perhaps stopped to simply enjoy the scenery for a moment or two, before moving on.

Beneath the floorboards lies the ground. Topsoil, dirt, mud, clay – by any other name, that which conspires with gravity to connect us to the Earth.  We take from the earth, and with some water, a dash of centrifugal force and a modicum of inspiration, sometimes, just sometimes, we give back from whence we have taken.

Email indigodragonfly.K AT to place all orders.  A PayPal invoice will be mailed to you that includes airmail shipping (or surface mail if you’re in Ontario).  For further information, see the bottom of this post.

Susanne James is a Haliburton artist who has created a series of tasty mugs with a special knitting flavour. There are three types of mugs: White with brown undertones and with knitting terms abbreviation pattern (2 Available), White with a knitted cable pattern (1 Available) and Blue with knitting terms abbreviation pattern (Sorry-Sold Out!). If you are a member of the Smart-Ass Knitters for World Domination yarn club, you may recognize her work from June’s artist swag. The mugs are going for a dirt-cheap $24 each, so get yer hands around one toot-sweet! As well, you can check out Susanne’s website at and take a gander at her other unique and fabulous creations.

Don’t delay – call today! Operators are standing by! Remember, for every empty mug out there, a lonely coffee or soup is waiting to be adopted!

To purchase any of the products, please send me an email at indigodragonfly.K AT (replace AT with “@”, no spaces) indicating which yarn(s)/gear you would like, where you live and whether you want it shipped surface or air mail. First email request for each yarn/fibre/project bag/mug secures it. I will send you a paypal invoice for the full amount plus shipping and ship the packages off within 3-5 days. Shipping charges to the US will start at $5.44 for surface mail and $7.70 for air mail. Canada Post doesn’t make shipping charges for Canadian or International packages easy, so I will send you a shipping quote for your order for your approval.

Best attempts are made to photograph colours accurately, however colours do differ from monitor to monitor (I’ve checked). I’ve also described the colours…and hope that helps. Custom orders (including dyeing or overdyeing your own fibre or yarn) are always welcomed! Just email me with what you have in mind.

Ah, the light at the end of the days burns quickly, into the distance reeling…
