I just returned from another short trip to India. The spinners there have slowly gotten the hang of how to make all of our yarns. I've been working around the clock to check every yarn they've finished to make sure the quality is top notch to sell. Exhausting but rewarding! We took some pics last Monday of the entire team. Take a peak below!
How boring is my outfit compared with theirs?!

Rolling Stone- New Yarns!
So I kinda had the best week ever, spinning new yarns inspired by all the goodies I collected on my last trip to India. I am working a new line of yarn, called Rolling Stone, to launch at the January TNNA tradeshow in Long Beach, CA. It's been heavenly to think about new things while I have the time and space to and don't feel the intense pressure of a looming deadline. Here are pics of what I've working on so far. If you have ideas of yarn names, let me know!
