Fiber Combination to Die For

I have always loved boucle yarn. A boucle is the style yarn that has the little loops in it. The first hand painted yarn I ever saw was a boucle and it has been close to my heart ever since. Painfully so, to spin a boucle is just not going to happen. Leaving each little loop out would take ages to do. Digging around in my fiber closet, I realized I had some boucle left that was not dyed. I took a single ply handspun yarn and then spun it together with the boucle. Here's a picture of it. Yum!

For those of you who have visited us at the different markets and shows this is nothing new to you, but here's a picture of a few Hand Felted Soap we sell. Next time I have one with a design, I'll be sure to take a pic before it sells.
In digging through the same fiber closet...I found some Kid Mohair and some Angora fiber. The two alone are both divine. But I started thinking...what if I combine the two. Can you say heaven??? Oh my! This fiber combination is to die for. Really, I may have to keep it in a safe cause people will be breaking down the doors for it. Once I get some spun up, I'll be sure to show it off. Just wish there was a way to let you feel it....hum, wonder if Bill Gates is working on a touch through the net program.
We have a new Patchwork Quilt Spun Yarn:

Here's what's on the drying rack all ready for our debut appearance at the newly relocated Conway's Downtown Farmers Market. That's tomorrow, by the way!

And lastly, non-fiber related news...I have to give a shout out to the Birthday Boy! Austin turned 7 on Wednesday! We had a blast going and seeing G-Force in 3-D and are having a big party for him on Sunday.
Gotta love that goofy boy! Have a wonderful week and as always happy crafting!!! ♥

It's Summer and We're Everywhere

Summertime brings warm memories of watermelons, fun hot nights with good friends and good times. Here is some watermelon roving soon to be spun into a summertime fun yarn.

I have been busy, busy, busy! Each Tuesday, I have been setting up at The River Market's Farmer's Market, in Little Rock. Be sure to look for our booth. The Market is open from 7:00 AM to around 2:00 PM. Stop by and see all the new yarn and other fiber creations including the ever popular felted soap.

Every Saturday, I am at the brand new Argenta Farmer's Market and Art and Crafts Market. It is located in the heart of North Little Rock's Argenta area. The Market is right on Main street and is right on the trolley path. Just look for the tracks and it will lead you right to the market.

Here are a few pics of new yarn:


Here's some of the new yarn laid out to dry:
Last Saturday, at the Argenta Market, a really nice man stopped by the booth and snapped an amazing shot of my wheel in action:
This was one of the daily photos for a really cool blog called 365Argenta be sure to check it out when you get a chance.

Lastly, Sunday's through Tuesday, some yarn is still listed on Conway's Locally Grown. The market is online and you pick up your purchases in Conway, Arkansas.

In facebook news...we have a Brand New Fan Page set up. Be sure to check it out and become a fan.
