This one's for my homies

Speaking of the Bellingham Farmers Market, I must give a shout out to the amazing women of Spincycle Yarns. I have been drooling over their yarns since I first glimpsed them last spring. I bought this beautiful skein for my mother's birthday; it's called "fallen leaves". All the yarns are hand-dyed, hand-spun, all-natural, mostly-local fibers. This enterprising duo bring pep and spunk to an age-old art. This ain't your grandma's yarn store. Not that her store isn't cool too. I mean, you can't go wrong with wool. I'm just saying, they bring a young, hipster sensibility to the craft. Check out their website ( for more woolly wonders to behold. Support independent artists!
