i am busy packing and prepping to leave on Wednesday for Fiber College of Maine. it’s always tough to spread the word about an event when you’re attending for the first time yourself, but […]

see you at Crafted!

HOORAY! it’s time again for Crafted: Handmade in the Hudson Valley. i’m leaving to set up at the lovely old church in a little bit, so i don’t have time to chat, but i hope you’ll come and see us if you’re in the area this weekend! it’s truly my favorite of any holiday sale […]

a project

Alisa and i had so much fun during her visit, which was way too short what with 3 of the 4 days being taken up by Sheep & Wool (we had to deliver my stuff and get a sneak preview on Friday). we hadn’t seen each other for about 6 years, and we started planning […]

follow the fiber, chapter two: the spinner

the next phase of our fiber adventure has transpired! the lovely fiber that cris dyed has been spun into a gorgeous two-ply yarn by jill. i loved learning about her process in creating the yarn that i will crochet with; read all about it over here. guess who’s up next?

follow the fiber, chapter one: the dyer

one fine sunny saturday afternoon in january, over coffee on a patio outdoors (an extremely rare thing for january in these parts), an idea was hatched between three fiber-loving friends, designers, and etsy shopkeepers: myself, jill of jill draper makes stuff (and now jill draper blogs) and cris, of into the whirled.  the seeds planted […]

i love spinning. but it’s definitely the thing that always gets pushed to the bottom of the Priority Ladder, i guess because i love it but it’s not one of my sources of income. […]

fleeced

two weekends ago i participated in my first-ever fleece to shawl competition at the Ulster County Fair. five of us (all members of the Ulster County Handspinners Guild, which i’ve been neglecting to mention that i joined last winter), dubbed the Virgin Woolies (it was our first time!) took the virgin […]

spin a yarn

these are the skeins i spun in the pluckyfluff class last weekend! i’m very proud of them, because they show that i achieved my goal of breaking out of my spinning rut. basically i’ve been churning out the same stuff over and over. but now… spinning will never be the same again! above right was […]

we plucked, we fluffed

do these faces look happy? we were all exhausted by this point, but only in the best possible way! thanks, lexi for an incredibly inspiring and energizing weekend of mad spinning fun!

here are about a million pics (editing is not a skill i possess) and i’ll try my best to explain what’s happening in each:this […]
