Hand painted superwash merino in Blueberry from Cat Mountain Fiber Arts.  Spun up this summer to celebrate the fact that I had finally finished spinning a bajillion skeins of white yarn.  Recently sent off to a deserving knitter as part of a gift exchange.

Mark Your Calendars

If you live in the Denver metro area (or don’t, but are willing to travel) and like fiber arts and living history (or just want a nice day out at a farm), mark your calendar for Sheep to Shawl at the Littleton Museum on Saturday, April 17 from 10am to 3pm.  There will be sheep shearing, wool processing, spinning, weaving, dyeing, and, of course, baby lambs.  If you come, look for me by the dye pot and say hi.  Hope to see you there!



Randomly, on a Saturday

1. I went to the museum and made bread this morning.

3. I am in love with this yarn.

Thats the bamboo, nylon, and superwash merino blend in Dragonfly that I picked up in Estes Park earlier this summer handspun into a very fine two-ply.

4. I will be spinning more of it at my spinning group tomorrow.

Isnt it gorgeous?  Have I mentioned how much I love this stuff?

Denver Handmade Craft Fair

Today was the Denver Handmade Craft Fair.

NurseK and I got there early to set up our booth.  She was selling some of her really stunning crochet creations and I was selling my hand dyed yarn and fiber and handspun yarn.

It was a small fair, but a good first experience as a vendor.  I made a few sales, got to spend a beautiful day in the park with NurseK and LuLu who came to hang out with us for the afternoon, and got a fair amount of spinning done.

I’ll be getting my leftover inventory from the fair posted on Etsy over the next few days so keep an eye on my shop.
