Shop update!

Really, I have no idea if anyone but my mom reads my blog. And I am not even sure she does!

Anyway, we are having a small stocking at Tiny Lady Cooperative on Tuesday. What do I have for sale? How does sock yarn sound? Two oversized skeins of Louet Gems sock yarn, a skein of lovely silk and superwash merino laceweight yarn (a whopping 1000 yards of loveliness) and another new sock yarn that is 75% superwash wool and 25% nylon. Great yardage, wonderful durability!

I love plying. It really is magical to re-handle all that yarn that you spun and see if become something lovely and useable.

I don't have much in the way of stats yet: So far, I have spun and plied 5 ounces and have 338 yards, I think. I would love to cast on for the shawl, but I have been so busy dyeing. No time for projects for me.

OK -- must go wash out the latest yarn. And the BFL I dyed last night -- yummy, yummy fiber! Oh -- got the Socks of Doom off the needles too. And have started a Pi Shawl for my mom. Many, many posts to catch up on.
