knitting blog, handspun yarn tips
So I find that the fiber community is pretty evenly split between folks who love the internet and technology and those who are most likely using dial up. I even ended up being the " web person" for my local spinners guild because no one else wanted to do it. I feel that this is to be expected because if you enjoy passing your time with yarn and spinning wheels you may not be into all things technology. As a result I've gotten a good many questions about the website ravelry.
Ravelry is an online search engine and community for fiber artist. I personally have sort of mixed feelings on it. It absolutely can't be beat for pattern searching and finding new designers. I personally prefer Instagram or Facebook for socializing and sharing projects just because I find the sites more user friendly and updated. Here are some videos I made to give sort of a run down on the site and how useful I find it for finding the perfect pattern to incorporate some handspun or art yarn. Please comment if you have any questions and I'll be here to help.

Greetings Fellow Yarnies and Fiber Friends,
It's been a busy spring so far, We've been working hard on our new additions to our signature line featuring rustic solids and small farm fibers as well as getting ready for some great pop up shops at smart and Becker gallery and the Retropolitan Craft fair. The fair was today and we had a great turn out. I was joined by one of our featured artist from Black berry patch homestead ( hint hint there will be more of her yarns that sold out in record time hitting our site soon) and we were busy spinning and talking to people all day. This really was a great event. Here are some highlights and some of my favorite yarn and textile artist I got to hang out with there. Enjoy
