Crafty me

Went to Joann's today after work and found some great white knitting thread to make snowflake ornaments (and a hook for $0.50!). I know, Christmas is a ways off. But I figure if I work on it a little bit all year long I will have a really nice set by the time I need it for the tree.

While there, I also found Homespun in the same dye lot as the Homespun I previously bought. Now I have enough to make myself a real cardigan. Off to find the perfect pattern...

I thought you would enjoy these sites. I can't knit at all, but I love what these women do and the yarns they create
are stunning. As soon as I saw them I thought of you!

ooooh! Thank you!

Do you think you would ever try your hand at Dyeing/Spinning after seeing those yarns? I have seen them in person and you could just hang them on a hook and look at them as they are!

I have really never encountered them until recently. I don't even know what all is involved. But they sure are pretty. I may have to research...we have an alpaca farm right around the corner from us. I bet I could get some good materials to spin into yarn.
