A little while back, I announced that my little shop would soon reach its 1000th order, and to the customer of the thousandth order would go a fantabulous fibery prize! It took a little while, but reach it it did, and in the first week of November it was placed by Terri from Texas. A big Congrats from me to Terri!
I had bounced around a few ideas as to what to do for my Thousandth Customer. It had to be something special. A one of a kind special. Something a devoted sock knitter would lovelovelove!
Finally I decided. It would take time, but I knew it would so be worth it, and besides, a Thousandth Order only comes around once. So, to Terri, would go my handspun sock yarn. Just like the yarn I dyed, spun, and knit these Fab socks from. Dyed to her color preferences, of course!
Sundays I usually take off from my work from home business, and I use it to play, to knit all day in my jamas if I want to, to dye my own personal yarn or rovings, or, like last Sunday, to spinspinspin! (oh, and watch the Steelers games too!) I filled the first bobbin,
and started the second,
I promised to have it ready by Christmas, and it should be done well before then! It’s nice to sit down and spin away, usually I spin a little here, and a little there, so it seems to take forever to finish a skein or two. I’m so excited to ply this and see the finished yarn! Terri, I hope you like it!!
