i have been nominated (twice if you can believe it!) by lola of the black sheep blog and mick of much-adored for the ‘you make my day award. i am honored! thank you both. since’ i just recently did the “makes me smile” award here… so i was going to bow out on this one… but instead i think i’ll give you some of my favorite spinnerly blogs.
dyed in the wool handmade
marion’s arts and crafts
pieces of string too small to save
sarah’s homestead blog
and i’m expecting to see much more spinning from yarnbee.
wow! i really felt as if i wouldn’t have ten, and then i did. what about you all – spinners out there – any favorite spinning blogs? i always feel there are way more knitting blogs that i read than spinning blogs and i’ve a sneaking suspicion that those of us who produce fiber often fall into the blog as ad category. my other thing is that i’m more interested in those who sometimes knit with their own handspun rather than just selling roving and yarn… but i’ll take whatever you can give me!
the yarn from this entry is some of the yarn mentioned in the previous post. i feel like i’ve been doing enough spinning to not only improve, but come to some decisions of what sort of yarns i’d like to sell. one decision down. the other decision i’m fighting with is whether or not i name the yarn? and if i ever move on to selling roving… do i name the roving? i know that knitters like colorways to be named, but i may not have the energy to do the naming of hats and yarns and roving – especially since i don’t really repeat colorways! i’m trying to stay away from tedious :) on the other hand, i’ve also asked people over on flickr what they think things should be named and that has worked rather well.
what do you all think? i think i’ll go label these pics ‘name me’ on flickr now… but for the future i’m unsure. any advice would be well taken. have a great monday!
