Great news this week...our web store design is finished and I am compiling a list of what I want to offer there when we open it early this new year. At the top of my list are spinning & felting fibers, hand spun and Malabrigo yarns.
So...with this in mind, I'm now spending as much time as I can spare spinning new yarns.
This week's haul included what may be one of my all time favorites, and I've named it Turquoise and Copper. There are four skeins, and they are soft and squishy and begging me to keep them. What to do? Sell, keep...sell, keep...hmmmmm....I guess I have another month or so to decide!
When those four skeins came off the wheel, the next to be spun accidentally ended up being perfect companion yarns...I have named them Copper Curls. I have tried to adjust the color to show you more accurately what they look like, and hope it gives you the same feel I had when I named them. These are also in the stash for the new web store. Boy...I just realized something...we'll have to have a grand opening when it goes live...and I should probably think up a contest to offer some of our treasures for prizes!
Yesterday Monte and I managed to inventory a lot of the yarn back stock we didn't bring over to the new shop. Please read my page posting on this, about the big sale coming. You won't want to miss out!
We came home last night, under a storm warning for a warm storm front that was supposed to bring us up to 10" of snow above 7,500 ft. Our home is just around 7,800 feet, and here's a picture
of what I saw outside the kitchen window this morning. I should name this photo "Bob's World", because he spends many hours each day, surveying the forest and watching for invader animals like birds, rabbits, squirrels, chipmunks, and the occasional coyote. Oh...and last, but not least, a photo of Bob, watching his world.
I hope you all have a safe and fun weekend! ---Martie
