March 2015 Spun Right Round Club on the Hansen Mini Spinner

I'm still working on the Spun Right Round Club colourway from March 2015. A beautifully prepped Rambouillet. So close to being finished this one! I played with the colour placement by spinning a modified fractal spin. More details on Episode 94 as well as this episode.

More early morning spinning. #craft10 #spinning #spunrightround #spinnersofinstagram #hansencrafts #minispinner
The Hansen is Seeing Much More Love These Days...

I can't wait to try out my new Hansen Lace Flyer!!

Enhancing the Stash -


April's Spunky Eclectic Club arrived, and I'm loving both the colour (it reminds me of some handspun socks I made years ago), and the fiber!

This Week's Review -


This week, I take an in-depth look at one of Craftsy's newer classes, Drafting From Woolen to Worsted, by Jacey Boggs-Faulkner, which I give 2 big thumbs up!  I was not compensated for this review, and the opinions are my own.

I am a Craftsy affiliate, so if you click the link above to sign up after seeing my review (or any of the Craftsy links on this site), a little bit of cash goes into my change jar, which I will pass back to my listeners with prize draws. There's going to be a biggie coming up in June! Stay tuned!
