Giveaway Winner! Plus Some Two Tails News

Thanks again to everyone who entered the blog giveaway! I think I need to try some Targhee, since so many of you had such good things to say about it.

Without further ado, the winner of my 100th Post Giveaway—chosen by random.org—is The Painted Sheep! Her favorite fiber to spin is BFL, and her favorite to knit is merino/silk blend.

Congratulations!

So, this giveaway was such a success, that I’m totally planning another. My Official Third Blog-o-Versary is in September…plenty of time to think up something equally fabulous…stay tuned for that!

Finally, I gave test spins to four new Two Tails spindles this morning. The lovely divas will get their photo shoots this weekend…and then make their way into the Etsy shop! Yup, Mark’s almost ready for his shop opening! That’ll be happening some time next week, so keep your eyes open for updates on the Two Tails Rav Board.

And so this isn’t a completely photo-less post, here’s the custom spindle Mark and I designed, which made its way into Allison‘s hands last weekend as her going-away present:

Three-inch cocobolo/Macassar ebony laminate, on a matching ebony shaft

Yup, Mark’s playing with his own home-made laminates now, and I think it’s safe to say he’s having some success. So far, this is one-of-a-kind, but there’s plans for more laminates—including more cocobolo—in the future.
