I toted the Ladybug and the Spinolution to the office/studio so that a new spinner could try them out. She’s hoping to add a wheel to her bridal registry (a lot better idea than a toaster!).

I haven’t been blogging because I’ve been finishing projects started like this De Colores knitted shawl. (Note that the shawl was knit from commercial yarn [same one as warp for De Colores scarves], not from hand spun shown below.) It’s the bottom up pattern with one stitch and then the yarn over instead of three stitches.

I’ve also been doing some spinning. More faux (in two weights) and some blue sparkle. I’m planning to start listing hand spun on my Etsy site next weekend. I’ll be including the purple beaded yarn and some complementry yarn without beads. Watch for the grand opening of the yarn shop!
