All Downhill From Here

Life is good! I just bought an Ashford Wild Card drum carder and can't stop!!! Watch out Monk! I may come at you with a brush to add a little bloom to an earth tone! Seriously, this is a very cool little machine. It makes a super deep batt and they spin so beautifully. Wow. I'll be bringing this baby to classes for sure. It's so light...what a sweet toy.

So I've been posting more yarns and also some batts on etsy. Yesterday I spent a while taking cheesecake shots of gorgeous fibers and yarns. Wish I could tell them, "Ok, lean a little to your left. Great! Now chin on a fence!" I especially love photographing the batts. Cielo looks like an ocean wave in mid break.

News flash! We've started a local spin/knit/crochet group here in Sewanee! Twisted Friends will hold their third meeting today at 4:30 PM at St Andrews Sewanee in the library of Simmons Hall! This is really marvelous, thanks to the ever supportive Claire Reishman and the functions committee at SAS. Thanks so much for providing us with such a comfortable place to bring our wheels and needles. This isn't a class, it's just an informal gathering, but there will be spinners and knitters there. We hope our ranks will grow, so if you are in the area and interested, please join us from 4:30 to 6:00 PM on Wednesday afternoons.

Not I've gotta go card and spin. Cheers.
