Best Month Ever! and Big News!

So, I know I've said it before, but I've got to say it again - THANK YOU to all of my wonderful customers!!! Thanks to you all, May has been my best month *ever*!?!?! I am so grateful and appreciate you choosing my yarns for your wonderful projects!

I know I've been a slacker when it comes to the blog, but it's been a busy month! I've spun about 7 pounds of bamboo up in the past couple of weeks, and worked on some custom orders. I've got more bamboo coming any day now, and new art yarns in the planning stages . . . and, of course, some great new custom spins lined up! I hope June will be another great month!

Before I get to my "big news", here are some pictures of a few new things that are now available -

Spike's Moonlight - Batt-tacular! bulky yarn

A smaller skein of FunctionArt yarn -

LoopCoilyPuff/CoilySpun Super Coils Skein! Spun from 4 Loop "babycakes"

And, one more bamboo skein -

Now, for my "news" . . .

Back in January I found out the project I've been working on will be "complete" by the end of June. This basically means that my "day job" is ending. Ever since I found this out, I've been trying to figure out what to do - get another library job, try and find a part-time job, or try and make Kitty Grrlz full time. Well, the way the past few months have gone, it is very very likely that . . . I will be making KITTY GRRLZ my full-time gig!!!! I am so excited, and anxious, but really look forward to being able to devote myself to spinning and knitting full time. The past couple of months have given me hope that I can make it work. I will still be "keeping an eye out" for a good library job, or maybe a part time job, but right now, my "plan" is to make Kitty Grrlz full time through the end of the year.

The prospect of doing this is so scary. But exhilarating. I have flip-flopped on my decision countless times over the past few months, but . . . I think I'm ready to make it official! I will be Kitty Grrlz full-time as of July 1!!
