A little yarn candy....we all need it, right?
Welcome, come right in!
Blueball Mountain Spindle & Needleworks, the Yarn and Fiber Shop in Historic Downtown Elizabethtown KY, has become the focus of the activities of All One Farms. The Farm, itself is still where the Sheep are raised, Gardens are kept and large dyeing and processing takes place. We continue to live simply, still seek to be self sustaining and remain conscious of our role in the universe. Every day is an adventure and it doesn't always take me where I plan. Come journey with me and share my experiences as I continue evolving my dream. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Not being a techie literate person, I dread going into codes and languages that are not Roman based. So I took Sister Diane's Blog Tune Up Workshop ( http://www.craftypod.com/2010/01/06/its-coming-the-next-craft-blog-tune-up-class/ )to get a little hand holding while I revamped the old blog. Remember that was one of my major goals for the Year and part of my Craft or Bust Pledge too. I think I've burned my retinas out by looking at a gazillion blogs, websites and tutorials but I was gently led through the process by the incredible group also in the class. Being the careful (read obsessive) person that I am, I've changed things so many times that I missed the deadline. I'm one day late but here at last is the new header...for now. There are still halfa gazillion tweeks left to do on it but I thought I would aire out to the public. Another great concept from Sister Di is The Power of 1.0. This will be revised. But for now....it's out there. I would love opinions and ideas! Share!

This week I was able to keep my pledge to Craft or Bust: I started a new yarn with the help of this wonderful COLORBombIts Kit custom made by the ever colorful Ms Velma. Now I am also a COLORBOMBer in the Ravelympics, an annual fun event on Ravelry. My challenge is to spin a fabulous yarn from all these gorgeous goodies combined with my own hand dyed cormo and firestar roving. Yesterday, I spun a thick and thin single with the cormo roving. Another single will be made with the goodies wrapped and coiled around it. These will then be plied to create a bulky yarn that will be knit up into a thick cowl during the Olympics. Fun!
