To ply or not to ply

A lot of times I’ll be at a guild meeting or on a spinning forum and someone will show a singles they’ve spun and ask, “Should I ply this?” Each time I cringe a little bit inside. Why? Because the time to decide whether you want to ply your yarn is before you start spinning …

Good News, bad news, good news, and good news

Ok! First the good news! Corrie Sock is back in stock! Yay! Now the bad news. I’ve managed to keep most of my prices steady for a long time, absorbing my rising costs. Yeah, I can’t do that anymore. Not if I want to do frivolous things like pay the mortgage and eat. So I …
