Hey members, it’s another huge update for All Our Sins! Here’s what’s new:
Some quick announcements and updates!
I’ve had this website in one form or another, and at one URL or another, since 1999. Of course, its content has changed drastically over the years. Much of what I’ve posted here since then has been retired, archived, lost, or even deliberately deleted. The Wayback Machine could probably provide a pretty amusing trip down memory lane if I dredged up the old web addresses I used to occupy.
I can still remember the moment I decided to name this site Incyanity. It’s pretty close to twenty years back: I was posting in a thread on a phpBB forum moderated by some people I knew, casting about looking for a new name for my site for whatever reason. People in the thread knew me pretty well, including my tastes, interests, and my favorite color, and then there it was: a friend suggested Incyanity, and I knew that was what I wanted to change to. So I did.
On June 28, 2020, the site was rebranded as Iron Dragon. Read the announcement.
That’s right! I opened my yarn shop today! Woot! It’s been an amazing first few hours too, with lots of support from family, friends, and followers, and even my first few orders (omg!!). All the feels!! ♥
It took a little over a year to get here. The journey was challenging and sometimes fraught with doubt and fear, but worth it! I’ve learned a lot. There will always be more to experience and I’m looking forward to these first few steps into actually running my business!
I’ve opened with six (technically five, I guess!) colorways on three bases. My silk yarn is 4-ply 50% Grade A mulberry silk and 50% superwash merino in fingering weight. The next one is 25% nylon and 75% fine superwash merino, also in fingering weight. Then, last (but not least!) is the super fun 50% bamboo and 50% merino in sport weight. (The bamboo yarn is amazing, so squishy and soft, and shiny just like silk! I’m so glad I can have it available.) I also have some mystery yarn posted so if you like surprises you should try one of those skeins! Over time I plan to add many more colorways. After all, I have zillions of photos to choose from!
Did you notice the new logo? Yep, there’s a little bit of Incyanity rebranding going on too! My original dragon is still going to stick around the website—I’m too fond of him to let him go—but for the shop and a few other places, I’ll be using the new dragon! The shop logo morphs the dragon’s head into a camera shutter that is cradling a ball of yarn with a crochet hook and two knitting needles in it. The dragon head is the same one that I used to represent myself in my engagement announcement last fall. (Oh yes, I got married on May 24! I’ll share some photos from that adventure Soon™.)
The link for my shop is akairondragon.ca/shop or you can use the “Shop” link in the menu above. Now that I’ve officially launched, there will be a few layout changes around Incyanity coming soon too.
I’m using the hashtag #incyanity on both Instagram and Twitter and hope everyone who makes something out of my yarn will use it too (and tag me) because I really want to see all your pretty projects!
It’s March! Time has really flown by. In a way, it’s a bit scary. I could have sworn yesterday was still December. Guess not. On the other hand, I can also look back at the last six months or so and see how far I’ve come in many areas, particularly with my mental health. There are still days where I struggle a lot, but strides have been taken, challenges are being worked on, and generally speaking I am starting to feel a lot better. My family, friends, and doctors say my improvement is noticeable, which is reassuring (especially on days when I feel as if I haven’t made any progress at all).
Progress has been made in other areas too, specifically with respect to my yarn shop and creativity. Seeing tangible results in these areas helps reinforce the strides I’m making with my health, which is great. I can see the light at the end of the tunnel!
Here are where things are at:
I have a lot on the go! Planning my wedding, spending time with my fiancee, getting the shop open, dealing with my day job, keeping up with crochet projects, editing photos, writing, gaming. Whew! It’s a lot and I’m behind on some things (most especially the temperature blanket but also the Myst series roleplay and the photoblog of my trip to New Zealand) but despite the struggles I’m currently facing, I’m still determined to forge ahead. Here are some updates on things I’ve been working on today:
Social Media Everywhere
- Did you know that I have a Discord group? Yes, it’s true! You can join us in Iron Dragon’s Den using this invite link: https://discord.gg/kn2SF4W. The group is a positive creative community for everyone interested in art, gaming, photography, writing, and of course, yarn! I hope to see you there!
- Lately I’ve been posting more frequently on Instagram. I also have a Twitter feed as well as an account on Pinterest.
The Yarn is Coming
- The store is in-progress! I can’t say for sure when it’ll be open, but my hope is to get it open as quickly as possible. I have some barriers to overcome first.
Hi! I’m Cheyenne (aka Iron Dragon). Welcome to my website! I love nature and am a proud Canadian, born and raised in Calgary. Cyan is my favorite color. Learning to live with anxiety and depression is a big part of my life right now. I enjoy video games, writing, crochet, and photography. Drawing? Web design? Editing? Camping? Fishing? Reading? Aquariums? Yes, those too. I probably have too many hobbies. Completely yarn obsessed!
Get sneak peeks at new content and in-progress colorways by joining the Iron Dragon community on Discord. I hang out there every day! It's also a great place to share your WIPs, finished items, and other creative projects like art, writing, photography, and more!
