A *Fresh* Idea...

We were invited to join the wonderful Congo of Fresh a few months ago. Of course I have not been updating here at all...I am bad.

So, It with grat pleasure that we announce our 2nd home over with the girls at Fresh!! They are wonderful group of Women/Artisans/WAHM's. The products are superior, and their customer service is top-notch! Please check it out!

We are stocking at Fresh tomorrow (2/9/10) at 9am (EST) and 9pm (EST). We will have a couple Splendor Handspun yarns, as well as a semi custom slot with Mosaic Moon's "Morwenstow" colorway. Hope to see you there!

Here is a peek:

Thank You!

Wow! Our Grand Opening was a huge success. Better than I could have ever hoped for, and so much fun.

The stress is gone (for now :)), and the fun of deciding what to stock next time has begun. We will continue to stay busy over the next month with customs (all 3 sold out!!).

Thank you to everyone who bought, looked, supported, and everything else. It could not have been successful without all of out great friends and customers. And thank you tons to Monica, of Little Bear Knitwear (you know, that Silly Stripes Mama?). We have developed a great friendship since discovering we live within miles of eachother. She was here for the stocking yesterday for fun amd moral support, and spent countless hours helping us set the store up. Thanks so much Monica!

And finally, thank you again to all the great WAHM's who brought their talent to the grand opening....Andrea, Nickie, Tara, and Monica. Your work is all spectacular, and I am so appreciative of your help!

So, here is a taste of the aftermath...on the way to the Post Office to head to their new homes!!

Busy, Busy, Busy...

I can not NOT spin for even a day. I have to feel that fiber run throu my fingers, and see the finished product. I need to slow down though. The customs list is getting longer, and I have several personal spinning projects I still need to work on. It is consuming...though not in a bad way.

Latest Custom: For my dear friend, Monica. Western Sky Knits "Amelie" on Superwash Merino. Turned out beautifully, with excellent yardage :)

Some personal spinning George did yesterday. "Indian Corn" on Merino/Bamboo. I cannot photograph how beautiful this is. The bamboo shimmers, and make a deliciously silky yarn. I hope to knit it up into something yummy for me.

I am also working on some "Twilight" dyed by Lisa of Becoming Art. It is also a merino/bamboo blend, and wants to become a SMSS Pinafore :) No pics yet ;)

A Few Recent Customs, too!

All of these turned out really nice!

The first is Family Roots (formerly Ky Baby Knits) "Chocolate Dipped Biscotti" on Merino. I wasn't sure I was goin to love this when it was on the bobbin, but ended up really liking it. The contrast between the dark and lihkt sets it off.


Next is Some Selah (these colorways are from Lisa, now of Becoming Art). I did singles of "Neverland" and "Pan" and plied them together. It turned out wonderfully!

Some More Selah..."Frija":
And, later today, I will have some gorgeous WSK to show!
