Pluckyfluff's new book coming!

Just this morning, I happened to see the announcement on Amazon for Lexi Boeger's (Pluckyfluff) new book "Handspun" soon to be released. This is her third wonderful book concerning her unique approach to contemporary artistic yarn spinning. There will be lots of new things to delight the eye in this offering.

One of the things I am excited about is that she chose to include an artist profile about my work and designs using my handspuns and fibers and I can't wait to see it. Just the idea that she felt my creations were worthy of inclusion thrills me. Additionally, she will be doing a profile on my friend Natalie Redding (Namaste Farms) who is an amazing shepherdess in Temecula, CA as well as a wonderfully innovative spinner.

Currently, I am spinning tons of textured yarns and am working on a Shaman Coat which will be featured in a gallery show in 2012. Lately, I have been drawn to more wild organic looks in terms of garments. Therefore, I've been experimenting with some unusual wool fleeces that have that look. It should be interesting to see where all of this leads.
