A New Spinning Magazine, a Spinning Winner and Presents for Myself
Have you seen the new spinning magazine out of England?
It’s called YarnMaker and is a wonderful spinning resource.
I just received the first two issues and haven’t spent much time with them, but what I like so far is: lots of sheep and fleece talk, a two part round up of British spindle makers, natural dyeing, spinning and sheep people out and about, art yarns, history and quick projects.
Mostly, it’s lovely to have a different spinning point of view than our North American one. I’m ready to subscribe.
Remember Miss Babs’ special runs for the month of December. Buy 5 tops and get one free with the code SPINDEC (not to be combined with any other offer, sale, or coupon).
Presents for Me
In the midst of gift making and giving season. I always like to get a little something for myself. Look what arrived on my doorstep this week:
Amy at Spunky Eclectic had a sale and I fell down the rabbit hole. A little Targhee, a little Shetland (colorway: Morning Breath), Merino blended with cashmere and yak. I am ecstatic and will be happily spinning this gorgeousness very soon.
Jillian is the author of the best-selling spinning book Yarnitecture. She is the editor of Knittyspin and Developmental Editor for PLY and PLY Books. She kinda loves this spinning thing and wants everyone who spins to love it too, so she teaches and writes a lot. She knits, weaves, and stitches and tries to do as much of it as she can with handspun yarn. She's always cooking up all kinds of exciting and creative things combining fiber arts.
She likes her mysteries British, her walks woodsy, and to spend as much time as she can laughing.
