Coopworth, photography assistant

This weekend I was taking photos for my newish little Etsy shop and Coopworth decided he wanted to help. His contribution was jumping into my homemade light box and dispersing little black hairs all over the white background.

So helpful.

He also felt the need to distract me...

...with cuteness.

PS, I've got a few project bags and sets of stitch markers in my shop. If I have been to a landmark occasion in your life (that is to say if you are a close friend or family), do. not. buy. anything. If you see something you like, send me a note and wait for a holiday/birthday/random Tuesday. You can't disguise your name on the internet, and I know how to refund money.

Mardi Gras yarn!

Does your winter landscape need some color? Today seems like a good day to celebrate vibrant things. I spun this yarn from little nubbins of unrelated fiber - it was a mix of colors and sheep breeds. So many colors is way outside my comfort zone, but I'm rather in love with the result.

I split the nubbins into a warm pile and a cool pile and then spun each pile as a single, then plied them together.

So bright!!
