A New Spinning Magazine, a Spinning Winner and Presents for Myself

Have you seen the new spinning magazine out of England?

YarnMaker Issue 1

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.

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:

Boatload of Boogie

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.

*Spread the joy!*

    YUM The magazine looks delish, albeit a bit pricey. sigh That is what happens when the dollar falls down the rabbit hole.
    You are so wise to give yourself presents, too. I figured that was why I hit the wall with Christmas Knitting… Nothing on the needles for ME! Oh, well, after the first of the year, I’ll be spending some time weaving. YAY.

    The magazine looks amazing, much better than any I have seen in the USA.I just have to figure out the exchange rate so I will know how much a subscription will cost me!
