Happy One Year Blog-iversary!

WOW! One year on blogger already... Well, since I'm in the celebrating mood- leave a comment/reply to this post by September 30th and I'll enter you in a drawing for a cool prizer! I'll announce the winner October 1st. The winner will then have 1 week to get in touch with their mailing addy or give up their prize to the next runner-up. No anonymous posters- you must have a screen name that I can write down and put into a hat.

Art Yarn Spinner's Magic Yarn Ball Swap

Ok- I just had to steal the magic yarn ball swap idea and give it a new twist!

This swap is for spinners who's primary passion is spinning funky, unusual, wild and over the edge handspun art yarns.

As you all may or may not know, the idea is to wind up trinkets, treats and other cool stuff into a yarn ball and send it to your swap partner. For this swap we will be using our own unique handspun yarns. Try to include items that could potentially be spun into yarn along with sweets, cool stickers, charms, badges, buttons and other crafty little items. Use and stretch your imagination!

Sign-up deadline is November 1st and the swap dealine is November 30th. For more details or to join this swap:

This yarn was created for a pirate swap I'm participating in. One item in the swap has to be handmade. I'm going to knit this into a skinny scarf (there isn't much yardage) and embellish it with some booty in the fringe. I've got some old looking coins and plastic kitchey skulls and funky beads and stuff. It has me inspired- so keep yer eye open for my line of punk yarns coming to a website near you!

Weeekend in a Whirl

Here's a little peek at what I've been up to this weekend- spinning up that last skein on the right and setting the twist. Wait till you see the pirate yarn!

Mohair & wool blend spun with novelty eyelash snippets. Plied with mini-sequins on purple thread. YUM!

Stormy Seas

Yeah, I know, its been awhile since I've posted yarn picks. This yarn sat for a week on my wheel before I finally got around to finishing it. Its a gorgeous blend of mohair, angora, silk and wool spun with novelty yarn snippets plied with dark blue mohair locks and pompom thread. I'm having trouble getting in to a routine since I got back from my trip- getting up in the early a.m. for school is a killer. I am NOT a morning person. Thought I was done with that crap- it never dawned on me when I had kids that I'd have to do it all over again. SUCK!!!

New Listing on Etsy

This fiber pack contains an assortment of fibers that can be spun in to art yarns or used for other fiber art projects. To view the details of what all is in this assortment, please visit my etsy shop:

Seriously Folks...

Proof positive of my fiber addiction- no more living in denial. I found these bits of felt stashed in an unused tea cup in my kitchen cupboard. I had no idea they were even in there! Waste not want not- I'm going to work these little strays into some wearable art- I found more bits to match- I'm thinking a little beadwork on the felt bead, some additional felt and wire...
