On Vacation

I’m all packed.

Customer-type people, in particular, please note that I’ll be away from the 5th through the 13th. I’m taking a real vacation for the first time in 6 years, which means no internet access. Boy, do I shudder to think about what my inbox will look like when I get back! I’ll start working on orders as soon as I return and wake up properly.

Fiber Club:
I’m shipping this today and tomorrow. I hope you all love it! It’s a new fiber, and delicious.

Bohus Sweater:

The chart (see above photo) is all worked out. I’ve drawn heavily from the “Red Palm” sweater in Poems of Color. “Red Palm” has the subtle color shifts I aspire to with this sweater, so hopefully the chart translates to my yarn well. We’ll see- I haven’t swatched the chart!

8 oz. of body yarn has been spun, also.

Handspun from Fantom Farm wool/alpaca mix roving.
approx. 175 yards/ just shy of 4 oz. each, worsted weight

This yarn is a medium softness with very slippery feel and gorgeous halo. This was a real pleasure to spin.

Spun from one of these. Two more to go, if necessary.

See you next week!
