New yarns & new spinning group

A brand new spinning group just started up in westminster, MD! It takes place at the westminster senior center, 6-9pm, on the 1st and 3rd fridays of every month. I attended the very first meetup on the 18th, and I'm hoping to be able to make it regularly. If you are local and interested in stopping by, there is a ravelry group called Sykesville Spinners where the meetup started.

I decided to card up some batts from my large stash of dyed fibers that got sort of out-of-control during the process of getting ready for shows in october-december so that I would have something to spin at the meetup, and I ended up carding a TON of batts. I just listed 12 new bulky art yarns in the shop, with more on the way probably by the end of the week.

I'm going to try to keep the shop stocked with yarns all the way up until show/kidding season begins (march). I'm dyeing my way through 10lbs of merino x wool in various patchwork colorways and hope to continue to conquer my stash by getting it carded and spun. It's almost shearing season, which means I need to organize my fiber and free up space for brand new wool - my own version of spring cleaning!
