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!

This weekend is Fiber Expo, so if you’re anywhere near Ann Arbor, come on out! There are over 80 vendors, including Happy Fuzzy Yarn. I’ll have some new colorways. This is Neptune. I’ll also have the yarn I spun during Spinzilla. And this may be your last chance to pick up some yarn from my …

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 …

Spinzilla Day 5

I’m still working on the happy happy fun yarn of happiness. When the darker bobbin is full, I’ll ply the two together. I’ve got enough fiber to make about 2 pounds of this yarn, and I’ll use it for a sweater for yours truly. It seems like I used to be able to spin more …

Spinzilla Day 4

Today I finished the Kandinsky merino/yak skein I started yesterday. Stuart was kind enough to hold it for the photo. In the evening I started spinning the happy happy fun yarn of happiness!  

Spinzilla Day 3

Today was Merino/Yak Day. I spun 2oz of Purple Kale and 2oz of mumble-mumble-something-or-other (I’ll have to look that one up) and plied them together, then spun another 2oz of Kandinsky. Tomorrow I’ll spin the second 2oz of Kandinsky and ply those together. I wanted to finish that skein tonight, but my hand is feeling …

Spinzilla Day 2

Today I plied the 8oz of BFL/silk in Anodized I spun yesterday, and spun and plied 4oz of Polwarth in Papaya.
