I have 3 big projects to work on before the festival...
First and foremost, I need to SPIN like crazy! I do have quite an inventory (at least by my standards, maybe 60 skeins), but more is always better. I've been pretty good though, trying to spin at least a skein or two each week.
|Handspun yarn that I've finished in the last 2-3 weeks.|
Second is figuring out and building a display. I brainstormed ideas for a display with my mother, and we decided that something like an a-frame spool rack (typically used for winding rug warps) would be perfect. I can display 2 rows of yarn on both sides, and the yarn can in a loose skein rather than twisted up. I'm secretly hoping my uncle is going to make it for me...not sure if it is something I could figure out on my own.
|This is originally what I wanted (metal grid panels), but they are EXPENSIVE!!|
|This is what we are thinking of now, with dowels on both sides.|
And last but not least is writing more patterns for my handspun yarn! I really need to get motivated with this, I wrote my last pattern more than a month ago. I still need patterns for DK, Aran, Bulky, and art yarns. I'd greatly appreciate suggestions if you have them!
