I have not had the most productive week...between taking my computer to be fixed and my car to be fixed and putting up with my husband home all day....but...

yarn and stuff

what a week...sales are going sloooooooooooooooooooooooooooowly. BUT I have a performance this weekend in Vermillion. You should come and see me...we'll have corned beef and cabbage and soda bread and potatoes and such....it'll be fun! I can't wait to see people...

I have spun an interesting sort of greeny-blue color that Amanda (my 12 year old) dyed. I'm going to do one more skein and then put it out. Berry Blue is going up for auction very soon. I now have two skeins and they are pretty...Eastery, springy colors.

so check in on my auctions if your interested. we have lots of d&d stuff up too....

Plus check out my website at

I got a couple requests for more spindles...so here they are...everything from one big one that weighs 44 grams (my favorite) to some tiny lace weight ones that weigh less than 10 grams. they are all for sale... email if your interested. (rita@celticharpanddrum.com).

Lots of cool new yarn...I'm trying a new style of picture...what do you think? I love the "warm fire" there is more of the "berry blue" coming...anyway...
