A Fiber Fun Weekend with Friends

What a great weekend! On Friday, we found out The Twisted Purl beat Daisy Outdoor Products in the Battle of the Brands. We still need you help! Please vote for The Twisted Purl in Bracket 3 at http://arksourcelink.com/brands

This week we are up against Mountain Valley Spring Water.  That’s another BIG BRAND!  I am still just in shock and amazement my little ole company of one has made it this far in the competition.  We could not have done this without you.  Here are a few funny meme photos fans have made for us:

Spastic Spinning Saturday

Yesterday was a very productive day! I completed four skeins of handspun yarn plus got in some solar dyeing. Below are the pics from the spastic spinning day.

Above it the fiber soaking in the dye in the hot, humid Arkansas sun.  Yesterday it reached 103!
