Yarn Yarn Yarn and more YARN

 I've continued to be on a spinning streak, I sold quite a few yarns in October, which provided the funds for more fiber and the need to restock my cubbies at Stash and the shop as well.  The first one up, is a batt from Inglenook Fibers.  The lady whose shop this is, is a Greek Orthodox nun who lives in a convent.  I thought that was interesting.
Next up is an extreme thick and thin yarn from a continuing favorite of mine, Woolgatherings, and she is from Washington..maybe a good choice for Stash? 
 And this one is also from Woolgatherings, Polwarth latest favorite roving blend.
 This one is Sugar and Spice, from Unwind Yarn Company, another favorite shop of mine.
 And this one is from a batt I made from some of that Shetland I bought and washed and dyed and carded with some merino and silk noil.  I called it Grape Juice and Cheddar (wine and cheese for tots).
 And this one isn't a great photo, but the yarn is fabulous, corespun from a Bohoknitterchic batt.  I love it, it has pretty yellow mohair locks fluttering off of the main strand.
There've also been some knitted objects finished in the last couple of months, but I'll save those for the next post.  This one's getting a bit long with all of the pictures.  But I'm sending a big THANK YOU out to all of you who've supported my little business.  You help make it possible for me to keep spinning, and spinning helps me retain sanity in this stressful time in my life!
