i got to stay home from work today due to the blizzard in nyc.

the day was spent prepping for our big move (meaning cleaning!)

i sorted through old magazines!  instead of hoarding the whole issue, i tear out my fav bits and tuck them into my inspiration binder. i think some of the collages are starting to get to a really nice place. good feeling to 'em.

also, i've been neglecting my newly spun yarns. i keep forgetting to set the twists on them, since i like to do it all at once. let a whole stash accumulate and then give em a bath together. haha. bathing with friends saves water! :)

anyway, since scanning textures is my new favorite thing...

here's the fresh batch of spins headed for a hot soak.

ply away home - 2 ply handspun yarn

two ply for "ply away home" here you can really see all the colors +texture!

ply away home - corespun

corespun for ply away home (if you look right where i tied it off, you can see the core peeking)

ply away home - extreme bulky & thin, granny stacks, poofs, WILD

ply away home, wild yarn. extreme thick n' thin

ply away home - rambo/cormo fleece with lurex & silk cocoons
