What's a girl to do?
Spin~spin~spin... and not much knitting lately.
Now, don't get me wrong.... I love to spin! and this superwash that we are using for the Sock Hop Yarn is delightful........ yet.... we're still spinning on what seemed like a humongo list of backorders from our one day of selling handspun yarn (back in the end of July). Slowly but surely we are getting done.
Thanks again to all of you for your patience! We've added one new spinner (who might be willing to go public with her name *grin* - I'll let her decide!) and we are delighted with her work! I am currently testing out more people who can spin to the standards we want.... but in the meantime, from dawn to dark on the weekends (and in between seeing clients) I've been a spinnin' queen!
So I ask you, what's a girl to do???.... the pile of fiber that is waiting to be spun looks huge- my fingers and feet can only go just soooo fast...so, what did I do? Created five new colorways! Yup.. I know. don't laugh. (not too hard anyway)
Guess that I just can't get enough of this stuff :-)
Want to see them up close?
"Ain't No Mountain High Enough" (designed for Amanda!) all light pinks and orchid
"Crazy Love" - a sweet combo of deep violet with a few hints of crimson
"Do you believe in Magic" - a wild smash of subtle colors: silver grey and tan
"My Boyfriend's Back" - perhaps the guy in your life will enjoy this combo of deep maroon and burgandy
"Twist and Shout" - and just because I couldn't resist another blue... here's a vivid royal blue and soft green
The pile of fiber to spin is calling my name - so I'm off to do a bit of plying now. And the promise of spinning those new colors keeps me inspired!
