It's acronym day at Velma's World! Thought I'd do a "What's on my Bobbin?" Wednesday post. Here you are seeing skein #3 of 4 of LoopyDoopy Minis in 'Spent Blossoms'. Destined for sale at Black Sheep Gathering in June, it's supercoils in merino. (Yeah, I know; I'm sick of supercoils too. Something new soon, I promise.)
Speaking of BSG, I know I've alluded to it several times here, but I don't think I've made a formal declaration about my attendance. I'm here to change that; I *am* going to BSG in June, as a VENDOR! I'm very excited, but nervous too. This will be my first time at a big fiber festival, AND my first time as a vendor anywhere. I hope COLORBOMB and I are up to it!
I've been spinning like mad, stepping up my production as much as I can. I'm a fairly slow spinner, but I've already got 11 skeins of LoopyDoopy and LoopyDoopy Minis ready to go. My goal is to have at least 50 skeins of yarn to bring, plus some fiber. But it's been suggested that maybe I'm concentrating on the wrong audience, and that I should really be focusing on spinners, not knitters/crocheters, and should bring mostly fiber. So after my new carder gets here, I'm going to start cranking out the BOMBatts. With 2 different carders, I'll be able to make both smooth, well-blended batts (on my Strauch Finest), and lumpy-bumpy art batts (on my Fricke coarse). I'm calling them Plain Jane BOMBatts and Artsy Fartsy BOMBatts, respectively. Oh, and I'll be making some smooth batts with sparkle, called Bada Bling BOMBatts. Hope to have some pics soon to share. I should have some Wads o' Wool and Felty Balls, and some BOMBits art yarn ingredient kits, too. More details to follow as they emerge.
