First and foremost, I got a NY sales tax license! I still have a few more things to figure out in terms of sales tax and other NY rules, but I'm hoping to figure that out in the coming weeks.
I also placed part of my handspun yarn on consignment at a local yarn store! Cornucopia Yarns in Endwell, NY (outside of Binghamton) has agreed to try and sell some of my yarns, and I couldn't be more excited! Now I need to spin like crazy so I can try and get yarn ready to sell at another yarn store, this time in Ithaca!

Speaking of, I finished spinning the singles for my newest handspun yarn today. It is a beautiful blend of merino wool and yak from Abstract Fiber!

And last but not least, I just ordered a bunch of mill end roving from the Sheep Shed in WY! I bought white roving, brown blends, black blends, and random colors. I may order a pound of their dyed Cotswold locks later, but they were sold out. Now I just need to find some dyed shiny stuff (silk, tencel, bamboo, etc.) to blend, and maybe some curls/locks, and I'm all set to start blending with the drum carder. Then spinning!
Oh, and I finished my sweater! Just need to block and seam the back panel and it is finally all done!
