Episode 27 - Ode to Bad Lighting
There are a bit of show notes today because I refer to a lot of things that just are not on Ravelry or are on blogs specifically. Gotta give credit where credit is due!
Rockefeller is done! I haven't put any finished photos in Ravelry yet but the majority of the details are there. (I really need to get my projects updated on Ravelry. I've gotten really bad at that lately!)

Yes it is crochet. I'm working it on a size G with worsted weight Caron that I had laying around the stash. I'm hoping to put this in Ravelry but I haven't bothered yet. :D
Crown Mountain Farms: http://www.crownmountainfarms.com/html/animal-fiber/sw-merino.html
Yup... They have 89 colorways! I own sooo many of these and the ones I don't own I really want! (I've spun quite a few of these too) Under the Boardwalk is there and the colors are much better than any photo I could ever take! P.S. If you want an idea how the yarn looks after it's spun check out this link: http://www.crownmountainfarms.com/html/sockhop.html
Oh, and if you wanted the link for "How Sock Hop is Spun" check right here!
Think I got all of the important things! If you have never spun CMF's stuff you seriously should check them out. Making these show notes was dangerous... I made a wish list of colors I want from their superwash merino. The stuff spins like a dream!
