...when you offer your feedback on my new spinning tutorial video! Yep, I've entered the YouTube era. I started the COLORBOMB Creations channel yesterday, and this is my *virginal* video. COLORBOMB Creations is going viral! First one out of the chute: Corespinning. The production value is pretty low (*really* low; you can hear the traffic on the other side of the fence & Canada geese flying overhead), but (hopefully) I've put some good info on how to create yarn like my WoolyBear™ & WoolyBearCub™ handspun. Be sure to leave a comment with your thoughts.
Props to my personal marketing guru, CraftyCoach, for his gentle prodding to get me to dip my treadle into the video pool. Thanks, Norm!
Want to buy the yarn spun in the video? It's for sale in my Etsy shop: 'Have a Heart' is a ginormic skein, 34 yards of carmine Cormo/merino blend squooshy wonderment, with silk threads & just enough sparkle to make it POP! Doesn't sound like much, yardage-wise, but this ~3WPI super-bulky wonder-skein should be *plenty* for a small project like a hat, or pair it with a complementary commercial yarn to create something bigger. Get it while it's hot, just in time to whip up something for your valentine!
In other video news, my friend Jacey Boggs, Queen Boognish of Insubordiknit, has made a REAL spinning video! Her Sit and Spin DVD, chock-full of techniques for spinning art yarns, is IN as of today! Go, quick like bunny, and get your hands on a copy before they're all gone! And when you do get a chance to view it, be sure to keep your eyes out for my freeform-crochet Babies in a Blender hat (made with Jacey's handspun art yarn + doll arms I added) and The Fez (a crocheted fez made with 'Blood Fever', my own COLORBOMB Creations WoolyBear yarn), modeled by members of the backing band.
