Thanks to everyone who asked about how I've been doing this week. Much better. There is even new core spun on the big Ashford wheel right now.
This core spinning is kind of addictive. The colors are mixed on a large drum carder then spun with locks of mohair and coopworth wool with some angelina thrown in for sparkle. I'll have these at the market on Saturday so please come by and say hello if you are there.
Also a reminder that the Farmer's Market will hold a special Christmas Eve market on Dec 24 from 9-1:30 in case you need any last minute gifts.
Core spun yarn! I've been playing this week in between special orders and this core spun is the result. The skeins are huge well over 100 yards and surely enough to make a scarf or trim that special project. Have you tried the huge knitting needles in size 33 or even 50? They are wonderful to show off this kind of yarn and make the project knit up very quickly. Hint: you can order the needles from Amazon for less than $10. There is a lot going on around the Market on Saturday's this time of year with people looking for that one particular Christmas gift. This Friday is the December Ramble at the Galleries downtown and the city is also hosting a Winter Wonderland where the Market usually is. Come have spiced cider and cookies with us. See you there.
