Rapunzel, Finally!

Jen here!

Here in the studio, on the road, and at the shows, we love our racks!  They hold lots of lovely yarn, and they give us flexibility.  I'm not sure why it took us so long to figure a way to configure the racks to hold braided fiber, but we finally have, and we love it!!!  So many dyers display their fibers this way, and it's easy to see why...  Sometimes it's hard to stop working long enough to look and see a solution.  We've been braiding our butts off, and we'll be working to get new pictures up onto the website.  Here are a few lovelies in their new do's...

The towels were freed from their icy captivity, but we are back in the clutches of winter.  It IS January after all.

Yesterday we were talking about Stitches West and how green the hills surrounding Santa Clara are in late February.  We were lucky to fly in clear weather last year.  We flew over gray and brown and black and all manner of shades of those in between... and then we landed in CA and saw the Spring Green we were craving, and are craving now!  I've changed all the color options on my computer over to green, and have even switched my current knitting project over to something green!  Babs will tell ya, me finding something green to wear or knit isn't a stretch!  I've even put some green streaks in my hair!

They say, that snow attracts snow.  We've been having a real winter this year with snow and snowdays, wind and frost and ice.  We have more snow in the forecast and that means there won't be a loaf of bread or a gallon of milk anywhere to be found!  If the predicted snow comes to visit us this weekend....We'll still be craving the Green while we eat french toast and braid lots of  fiber...What else can we do with all that bread and milk?!?
