Thank you Rodelphia.   Drum carders are a ton of fun.  It took me 3 years to finally save up enough to get myself one.  It was well worth the wait.

I worked up my Self Portrait yarn! I used the 100 yard dash broomstick lace pattern but did 2 rows of the broomstick instead of just one. It's about 6 foot long and I still have about 34 yards left over.

Jexxican, I love what you've done with it. It looks so delicate and fluffy at the same time!

I'm getting ready for market this summer and I've made a bunch of kerchiefs from my handspun to sell. It's mostly yarn I didn't think anyone else would buy. I did this partly to have something other than yarn at my table and partly so when people ask "What can you do with it?" I can say "Well, I make things with it! See?"


Trouble is, I don't know what else I can make out of yarn that might sell at our hot farmer's market so I've made a bunch of these! What what if they don't like them? What if nobody buys them? What else can I make?

Oh, and I posted one of these I made a couple years ago here. There is an action shot there.

ETA: Pattern found here.

I think those are really cute.

As for other things to make,  what about some kind of reusable shopping bag?  I know I am always forgetting mine when I go to the market.
