it's hard work running a fiber shop.
but i guess it's also SOFT work.
i get to play with the most luxurious fibers all day long.
i snapped this photo this morning,
and added a faded gradation to make it richer.
isn't it pretty?
really shows off those vintage bottles i got from suz!
i staged this photo as a 'leader' image for the new
spinning service in my shop
for whipping those batts into yarns :)
i ended up going with the simpler shot (only 1 bottle instead of two)
because once you add text then it's a clutter fest. ha.
but i couldn't resist sharing this one anyway!
i'm getting back to into making yarn-
thanks to the tour de fleece.
i've spun 3 yarns so far.
here's a recent one:
it feels so very winter-y to me.
crisp blues and soft fallen snow white.
i'm still drafting ideas for the next collection.
i'm using the TDF as a pinboard. to see what i'm being inspired by.
still a lot of love for browns and autumnal colors in my mind & heart though.
speaking of yarns, i'll actually be listing some for sale too!
it's the first time in a long time.
i was spinning a LOT but all the yarns were being hoarded to make knitwear.
now finally, i have some to share with you too!! :)
along with 5 new "build a batt" packs! (shown above)
filled with luxury fiber ingredients for spinning as-is
or carding/blending with your stash!
each one contains a unique blend of fibers & fun!
i'll be listing some new batts too,
at the shop update THIS FRIDAY,
for good measure :)
ooh! don't forget- if you're playing along with the TOUR DE FLEECE,
you all get
just use code: TDFree at the etsy checkout.
& i will refund via paypal!
hugs & love!
for those of you who are following along
with my full-timing it series,
i have a wee bit of an update!
i applied to crafty bastards held in D.C. in october!
if i get in, that's a whole 'nother road block to tackle.
but i figured it was worth trying!
october is much more my month for selling knits
(versus july) hehe.
