For those of you wondering

what a "spenorah" looks like, this is the one we made.


From my maternal grandmother's sewing basket, which I inherited, came wooden thread spools. She had rewound some kind of awful thick stuff around them (not sure if it was thick thread or some kind of weird embroidery floss) but I kept the spools and they are perfect candle holders. We glued them onto two blocks leftover from the building block days, and spraypainted it all gold.



In other news, just updated the BBF website with more Silk Sock -- 50% silk, 50% superwash merino, 100% luscious!


Night Owl (has deep green and purple tones, very subtle)



Green Day

Grackle


Foreplay


Carrot Juice (even brighter in real life, Jen H!)

Love your grackle colorway! I just captures the iridescence of this underappreciated bird.

the yarn is beautiful... makes me want to run my finger across it and taste it... they all look so yummy!! but what brought me here was the picture of the young boy and the "spenorah" he is holding... what a beautiful memory to hand down through your family!
