This is my latest tattoo. A present from my husband for my birthday. The idea came from some yarn I was dyeing for work. This was a color that didn't make the final cut so it went on my arm instead :)

Happy Mother's Day!!

So, what did you do for Mother's Day??? I went to an alpaca show to watch my youngest son show his very first alpaca and guess what? He won 5th place!!! He was very proud of himself and had a great time. It was a good way to spend my Mother's Day. I also tried to win the shawl that I spun for but a cute little girl won, so good for her :) The money all went to charity so it was all for a good cause.

Here's a pic of Kyle with his ribbon!

Finally Friday

So, I had an early day today due the kiddos having a half day of school. Tomorrow I will be spinning in the fleece to shawl competition at the PAOBA show in York, Pa. On Sunday my youngest, Kyle, will bo showing an alpaca in his first show for 4-h. I need to find some time to spend with my Mom for Mother's Day :) Since I am home early I plan to spin a little and work on the shawl for work before TNNA creeps up on me and it's not done.

I am also working on a design for a cozy cabled shawl for cooler weather, it's all still in my head at this point but I'll keep you posted.

My first blog!!

Hello and welcome to my very first blog!! I thought I would try this just to have a little fun and keep everyone updated on my adventures in life :)

The Rock Star Dyer name comes from a friend who has given me that nickname so I thought it appropriate to use it for the blog.

My real name is Tasha and I hand dye all the yarn for The Alpaca Yarn Company. How cool of a job is that??? I love my job and the creativity that I get to play with on a daily basis.

I am a wife, mother of three children, four dogs, and seven alpacas!
