I dyed 5 pounds of corriedale roving with sunny yellows, peachy pinks, spun it all together and plued it with a fine yellow cotton yarn. soft and squishy.

February 1st!!! spring is close. here in NE Washington/n Idaho spring is in the air. Robins are back, day light is coming back, the sun is peeking out a bit more, more rain than snow is falling, you can just feel spring is in the air. I think back to our nearly 30 years in Minnesota, where February was still the depths of winter, no relief from the bitter cold and heavy snow till April. It was hard, yet we enjoyed the benefits of this winter wonder land. skiing at mt Frontenac, x-c skiing at a friends place and on the lake, sledding at Clear Lake park, one Valentines day we launched our hot air balloon from and flew to another frozen lake at 7 below ! 

Now I snow shoe around our 5 acres and dye lots of wool with sunny YELLOWS! 

this is my new yarn Sunny Dreams.

November 8, 2017

well i need to refigure that pic. She makes cute dolls, love the doll hair with my yarn.

this week i am spinning more red yarn. I will have it listed in my etsy shop as "Crimson".

i am also considering listing bundles of yarn. assorted small lengths. maybe several 10 to 20 yard skeins. i have had them in my booth all summer and find minis to be very popular. but to list them online when i am set up at the market twice a week is crazy upkeep. In 2005 I started putting my yarns up in 105 yard skeins because i was writting patterns and 105 yards seemed to be a nice amount for a scarf or several small shawl patterns i have. also more than enough for a hat or mittens. and it is the length of a foot ball field. this has nothing to do with anything. but several times a year someone will tell me this. and its what i can fit on my bobbin when i really pack it. LOL    so now i have this 105 yard skein thing and my mini skeins are really popular. so look for some mini bundles to be listed in my etsy shop.
