First, my compliments. ... another great cover! This should make up nicely in a bag.
My book came today. I'll post the 2007 shows on the sidebar as soon as I can get around to it. (There's a lot going on around here!)
A couple people asked me to tell them the vendor's name that sold me the silk that bled so badly. I don't remember the vendor by name. I also haven't checked the other colors that I bought from her. Hopefully this was an isolated mistake. If not, I know where she locates each year and I may ask her about it. I've had yarn rinse clear three times in warm water, then bleed on the fourth. Go figure.
My Dad emails his comments to me. They almost always say what I wish I could, only better. Here's his comment on the woods in early spring, he is a man who knows.
There is something new and wonderful about the air of a day in a hard wood lot as it reappears from under a bank of winter snow. Sharper Image would have a red hot product if they could capture and sell it.
The Ball and Skein Electric Winder. The prototype has been fine tuned, the parts list finished and priced out. Hopefully, by Friday it will be on the site and advance orders can be taken. We have all the parts on order and are ready to go back into the shop. Pricing looks to be about $395.00. This one will be followed by a non-electric model. I love it. Why shouldn't I, it was made according to my specs, and I've tested it all the way through. It is fully adjustable to any size skein up to 2 yds. There is a counter to keep track and a storage box for scissors and tie-ups or whatever. I'll post it here, too.
Now, a question. How much yarn, in weight (ounces would be good) have you spun on your spindle at one time and on what spindle??
