That's right...come to Mama

So I'm in the thrift store looking for a rake and lo and behold I see this beautiful beast:


"Ooooh, come to mama" I whisper to myself. A yarn swift for how much?

Maybe not as exciting as the $24.95 Bernina but very cool all the same. I have needed a yarn swift for a long time.

Also...

I kettle dyed some wool/alpaca last night for a swap I'm participating in and I am quite pleased with the results. This is my second time kettle dyeing.

Yay! That's a great find! And the yarn is beautiful, I love the colours.

P.S. I wanted to ask you - where do you get your brushed mohair? You wouldn't happen to know of any European manufacturers, by any chance? :)
