I've got a...

...giveaway for you! I haven't done one in a long time I thought it would be fun! Up for grabs is a drop spindle, 2 types of fiber, 1 batt and 1 combed top coming in at 1.6 oz total. A scissors on a necklace and a knitted bag for your spindle and fiber. (I did not make the bag in case you are wondering.)

So, visit my shop, leave me a comment and let me know how I'm doing. What you like about it and what I could improve on.

Thank you; I learn the most from you! Winner will be drawn by on Monday!

Finally, off the...

...needles!! I had second glove syndrome with these! They are my Mom's popover gloves. She will be sporting them at Shepherd's Harvest to keep her hands warm when she is helping me at my booth. It is usually cold and we are in a non-heated fair-grounds building. She's the awesome checkout lady :)

It's my own design, but someone beat me to publishing it. I will have the cable pattern on my project page soon. I used AFLoY's Opulence (merino/cashmere/nylon) in Lover's Island.

I'm a little late... the party, but here I am anyhow. The kids and I have been busy making these cookies!
I’m also anxiously awaiting the arrival of my Cherry Matchless spinning wheel due to arrive any minute now!

Here is where I found the recipe. Although I’m not impressed with the dough, it’s way too dry for rolling. I would leave out 3T of flour, since you add 3T of cocoa powder….filling is good!

How about some lovely fiber or yarn; 30% off just for you with coupon code: LOVE12 Expires at 8am tomorrow morning!

Happy Valentine’s Day!

I completed...

...this last fall and forgot to post it! I started with 2 batts, each 4 ounces. I made the lighter colored one and bought the other. I needed more to make the complete set for my daughter so I decided to spin them together! I love the results.

This is the best photo I could get of her, not very cooperative! I was going to make mittens, but as I was doing the cuff I just though I think this coat needs gloves! They are perfect and she loves them! The entire set sparkles in the sun! I made my son a set, too and will post it soon, it's really cute!
