Plan B: Fiberganza! The destash of the decade!

Remember that grant I applied for that would have allowed me to buy a bigger house with a much larger studio space? I didn’t get it. So, I wallowed in self pity for about 3 seconds, and then started forming Plan B. Plan B is making more space in the studio I have. There’s a …

My Sheep Tattoo

Last night I did something I’ve been meaning to do for the last few years. I got a tattoo of a sheep on my left arm. A Cotswold hogget to be precise. Doesn’t she have a sweet face? (At least I think it’s a she.) I’m so happy! For the curious, the tattooist was Zera …

Two new cowl patterns!

It’s cold and dreary here, the kind of weather that makes you want to wrap yourself in wool. Lucky for you, we have two new cowl patterns! Angelia Robinson‘s Jasper Cowl is our first crochet pattern! This cowl is designed using controlled pooling. Angelia shows you how to work with hand dyed yarn to plan …

An Interview with Riin

Want to read an interview with me? Penny Shima Glanz posted an interview with me on Little Acorn Creations. You can read the interview here.     Speaking of interviews, we’re soon going to start a series of interviews with LYS owners who carry Happy Fuzzy Yarn. Watch this space!  

Thank you and a Sale!

Did you have a good Thanksgiving? I meant to write this yesterday, but I found myself knitting and watching 6 episodes of Game of Thrones, so today will have to do! Each Thanksgiving I like to take time to reflect on what I’m grateful for. This year, I am grateful for Rob, my customers, my …

What’s new?

I thought I should post an update of what’s new around here. First of all, I got enough votes to move to the next round of the Mission Main Street Grants Program. Thanks to all who voted for me! They will announce 20 winners in January, so I just have to wait until then. Keep …

It’s Fiber Expo time!

6,652 yards

I spun 6,652 yards during Spinzilla. That’s 3.78 miles. I spun 5.14 pounds of fiber. Merino, yak, BFL, tussah silk, Polwarth, Falkland, alpaca, Corriedale, Romney, and I’m not even sure what else. I spun enough yardage to get to Ypsilanti. No wonder I’m tired.  

Spinzilla Day 6

Yesterday was Day 6. I plied two bobbins of the happy happy fun yarn of happiness. It was way past my bedtime by the time I finished, so no post yesterday. This past week has wreaked havoc with my sleep schedule, so next year I won’t try to post photos at night. I’ll wait till …
