Check out my shop

Woohoo, I'm planning a move for my shop soon. I'm actually going to be a dot com business.
I will be at
The site isn't actually set up yet, but it will be soon. Right now it heads you back toward my Etsy shop.

Setting up a website is not as easy as it sounds but I'm looking forward to the challenge of setting up a workable site and letting my Hubby do the tech work. :-)

This afternoon and evening I spent some serious time spinning (about 6 hours). I've got four more skeins ready to be photographed and listed on the shop site. And I've got three more skeins that have been ready to be listed for a while, but I haven't had the time to list them. I think I'll list this group next weekend, hopefully I'll have time then.

Recently, I've been tracking the time spent in purchasing/handling/prepping/spinning/dyeing the yarn and have realized it takes more time than I originally thought it would. My prices now reflect the time it takes to make it and I encourage other people who sell their own hand spun to list it at a realistic price.

Making hand spun is not a process you start and then walk away from and let it run on its own. You literally have to have your hands on it at all times (even for a lot of the dyeing). I may try to get a series of photos showing the process. It really is fascinating.

It is late now and I need to get to bed to be up to teach tomorrow.
