i will have dyed locks of this yum fleece for sale soon!

then! if a crazy fiber filled weekend wasn't awesome enough, when i returned julie (

yoursecretadmiral

) invited me to come spin LIVE at the etsylabs on the 26th! i did a virtual lab demonstration as well as a live show of my spinning talents!

what it looked like to viewers of the virtual labs! chat + video + classroom :)

don't worry if you missed it, because most recently, my dad gifted me a brand new mac computer! so now i have webcam capabilities and will be able to start documenting new techniques that i will be experimenting with.

also,

fiber batt clubs

(already shipped!) and

novelty art yarn clubs

(shipping this week!) have really been rolling! i have 3 members for each currently, and my limit is 5- so if you were hankering for a fiber fixxx, sign up before the spots are all filled!!

one lucky novelty art yarn clubber will be getting the yarn i spun during the etsy labs demonstration! shown above

i have sooooo many new things to list and photograph... a slew of new yarns 10-20, almost 4lbs of washed, dyed cormo/rambo fleece, as well as merino/targhee locks, and i will be making new gift sets with needles and holiday yarns!

wooo. i really need an extra set of hands!
