Its all true, the boogie girl is real, and you've found her. She knits, sews, spins, does pottery and writes it all down in this blog.

Toot toot toot
Oh, my. Things happen fast over here. Woosh! so I have a few announcements I want to share with you all. Most of it is business related but since my business is also knitting and my passion, it's worth mentioning here.
1Do you recognize this wheel?
If not, it's a Schacht matchless single treadle. You might know the double treadle better. Well, the Matchless wheels, the Schacht-Reese Saxony wheels, the spindles, the little flip looms and more are coming to Spunky Eclectic! You can see them HERE
The looms and one wheel will be here for the SPA show. The rest will follow shortly. I can't wait to get these all set up in the shop. I only have one Fricke and my Louet set up for display but once the Schachts get here, I'll have the little showroom all set up pretty. The argyle cow is almost here, I can feel it.
2Project Spectrum is about to start again!
You probably all knew this already though, didn't you?
The club will work within the color ideas posed for project spectrum. Funny thing, I have colors planned out until May and they already fit in well with the ideas posed for spectrum. I'm excited to be starting this again.
I also have another little thing. I'm doing to try and do a new kit for each section of spectrum. The patterns are all drawn up, I just need to dye all the various yarns and get them test knit.
3Tomorrow there is an update and a sale will start on the yarn. I know I'm telling you a day early, but I've been forgetting to blog about my updates so I'm telling you now. Spend $40 on yarn and get a free 200 yard sampler of the Skinny sock. It's a $9 value. Each $40 spent on yarn gets you a sampler. With the samplers I usually make a pair of 4 inch ankle socks for myself. The sale will run until the 17th or until I run out of samplers.
Ok, that's it. There is more going on over here but for some reason the brain is stuck. Too much work and not enough rest. I figure once the shop is up and going good, I'll rest then, right?
