Tuesday's Temptation

I have a yarn holder that I really love.  It is a lazy susan style that makes it so much easier to control my yarn as I work on my project.

Recently, while exploring on Facebook, I found an unread message that had been sent to me.  I don't know how it got missed, but it was a very nice message that complimented my blog and then told me about his yarn holders.  I very much wish I had seen it back when he sent it because first, I dislike that I inadvertently ignored him and second, his designs are amazing!

Yarn Lazy Susan has a Facebook page and once you see the pictures of his yarn holders you will want one.  I just know it!  His designs are able to manage multiple skeins which would be fabulous for colorwork projects.  He makes the holders with 1 to 4 posts and they are very reasonably priced.  He takes orders through his facebook page which I linked to above, so please click on over and check out the amazing workmanship and the colors available.  You won't be sorry!

Stay yarn crazy my friends!

Tuesday's Temptation!

I recently discovered Knitting Loom Holders.  I am not a loom knitter, but I have several friends who make lovely items on knitting looms and I think they will be very interested in these items.
The Etsy shop Loom Knitting Gadgets carries the above pictured model as well as a few other configurations.  They are adjustable and I think they are reasonably priced.  To learn more about them, check out their Facebook page, Loom Knitting Holders.

Stay yarn crazy my friends!

Spinning Wheel For Sale ****SOLD*****

For Sale: Ashford Traditional Spinning Wheel. In great condition and spins like a dream. I am selling it because my back prevents me from being able to spin on it for very long so I want to sell it and get an espinner.
I purchased it about 4 years ago on Ravelry and the seller said she had purchased it used, so I have no idea how old it is.
Comes with both single and double treadle set up, regular flyer with 3 bobbins plus a jumbo flyer with 3 bobbins and lazy kate. Must be able to come pick it up in Maine as I have no idea how to ship such an object, but I am willing to meet someone part way if it is a reasonable distance. $450.
I can take more pictures if desired.  If you are interested please contact me through Ravelry.  I am BevIsYarnCrazy on .

Spa, Knit & Spin 2015 - Market Place Tour

I spent way too much on this weekend, but once you see all the amazing things that the vendors had for sale, you will understand why.  The lovely face saying hi to Melody is Heather (boutrosbabe) Kinne, of the Fiberista Files fame and proprietor of Highland Handmades.  I was fortunate to purchase one of the spindles that her husband, Paul Kinne, produces and I love it!  

I will do one more post about the "Spa" showing what I purchased in a few days, I hope.  Until then, please enjoy a view of the market place via my phone camera.  

Let's all stay yarn crazy!

Spa, Knit & Spin 2015

I went, I saw, and I spent! Yes, I love to stimulate the fiber community economy.

My sister, my sister-in-law and her friend joined me in Freeport, Maine for the thirteenth annual Spa, Knit & Spin.  It was great to be able to share this wonderful experience with my companions and with the new people that I met.  I was even able to help someone get started with her new supported spindle.  I am really looking forward to attending next year!

While we were in the area, we did make an excursion to Bath, Maine to explore Halcyon Yarns.  This store always fills me with wonder.  There is so much to see and learn about and never enough money!  Since, I love this place so much, I decided to share it with you.  Unfortunately the sound quality was terrible, so I dubbed over it with music.  Please enjoy the eye candy and forgive my shaky hands.
