We have a YARNO winner!!

Congratulations to Cindy M of Florida!  She is our new YARNO winner.

So, clear your YARNO boards.  We’ll start again tomorrow morning.

We are on Facebook!

Yes, I caved.  That’s all I can say.  I have been told many, MANY times that we need to be on Facebook, so I gave in and did it.  I still have no idea what I am doing, and there is a huge learning curve going on, but if you could be so kind and to friend us on Facebook, then I can figure out how to friend you back and you can keep up with all of the stuff we are doing there as well as on the Dyed in the Wool site, maybe more.  I’m not sure as I really have no idea what I am doing – yet.

How is that for vague and convoluted?

Here is where we are.  Thank you!

Other uses for Fiber Binder Club yarn

Look at what Cindy of Delighted Hands is doing with the extra yarn spun from the Fiber Binder Club.  I can hardly wait to see what it looks like when it is done and blocked out.

YARNO

YARNO will pick up at noon on Monday the 30th.  I have food poisoning and am pretty sick.  I’m sorry.

Dyed in the Wool on the Yarnspinners Tales’ Podcast

The June 25th episode (110) of the Yarnspinners Tales’ podcast is a review of the Kentucky Sheep and Fiber Festival and she talks about all of the vendors that were there as well as the festival itself.

The part where Cindy Williams talks about our Dyed in the Wool booth is beginning at the 26:00 mark, but please listen to all of it.  She covers the festival pretty well (you can tell she loved the shearing and animal area and seeing it all through her little grandson’s eyes).

This is a new-to-me podcast, but I’m going to make it part of my regular listening.  And I am going to have to go back and listen to her catalog and get caught up – since this is her 110th episode, this will keep me entertained for quite a long time.

And thank you to Cindy from Delighted Hands for pointing this out to me so I could hear it.
