Thanks for stopping in and checking out my handspun yarn!  Be sure and check out my facebook page for more fun things going on.  I’ve been having regular give aways..patterns and wool roses….you never know what I’ll be celebrating over there next!  I hope you are enjoying spring!

Your friend in fiber,



The sun was shining here, just like it was really trying to be spring!  The temps are warming slowly, and the mating pair of robins in our front yarn yard, are back!  I do think spring is really coming if we are all lucky!  So to celebrate I am hosting another handspun yarn give away on my facebook page.  You do pay for the shipping but I’ll throw in the skein for free! The yarn is a fun colored superwash merino wool with some soft sweet lavender and peach and ivory just in time for spring.  I’m also including the wool roses in this one!  Don’t forget to stop by and check out the handspun yarn kits I listed in my Etsy shop today too!  I hope you are enjoying some other kind of weather besides snow and getting to watch  your favorite spring birds arrive too!  🙂

May update:

Just updating my handspuns as of late.   Happy Spring’s a long time coming here. I think we’re going to just miss it.  We’ve  had a lot of days of what I deem are “5 degrees above winter”….and very wet, the yard was like a hay field.  Great grass for compost tho!

I have decided to put a lid on my fiber exuberance, and just stick with business as usual, here on my blog.    Phunny how a little exuberance can sometimes bring energies from out in left field flying straight toward your head.   It’s ok..because I like to work and I like to work real hard.

For those of you here to enjoy fiber, I love you, ..please excuse my mess, but enjoy none the less!
