Make In The New Year!

Make In The New Year!

New Year's Eve is upon us friends!

Will you be getting dressed up in your fanciest clothes and painting the town red with all of your bestest friends?


Will you be like me, and put the children to bed, kiss your husband good night and blissfully spend the night making your heart out (re: knitting, crochet, weaving, sewing, spinning, darning- whatever!) in front of a warm fire with a cup of tea and thinking fondly about the past year?

Ahhhh it bed time yet?

If you will be choosing the second scenario, then you are cordially invited to spend your evening with me, not in my home of course, but virtually on my Facebook Fan Page ontheroundfiberart! I am hosting a super fun event starting tonight at 7 pm, EST until sometime after midnight. There will be giveaways, funny meme's, great discussions, and a fun community of other creative people who are staying in and being cozy this holiday night.

All you have to do it like my page and join the event (link below) from there event posts should start popping up in your facebook feed or you can click back on the event at any time during the night to see whats going on!

All attire is welcome- BYOB, please make responsibly!

If you have any questions, please post them here or in the event page and I will answer them as quickly as possible.

I hope to see you tonight!

WIP Featuring OTR Hand Dyed Maine Yarn

Yes, it is true, I have started yet ANOTHER project. This really is so unlike me, typically I prefer to work on only one project at a time, but for heaven's sake there is so much pretty yarn in my house! I can't stop myself! I'm not sure when I am going to finish all these projects, but every morning I am very optimistic about it. That counts for something.... right?
