Friends of Rocket Yarn

A couple of my friends (and fellow fiber artists) started Etsy shops recently so I thought I would share them with you. They are both amazingly talented fiber artists and you should snag up some of their great yarn and fiber before it gets away. :)

Dana's Shop: Goble Warming
Dana is an amazing spinner. We met back at the Birth Center of Gainesville in 2004 when I was pregnant with my first child and she had just given birth to her first child. We were obviously meant to cross paths as we both found our way to knitting as well and ended up at the same knitting group. Then about a year ago we took our first spinning class together. I'm still amazed every time I see her yarn. She can out spin me by a long shot. Amazing consistency in her spinning and I love her color choices.

Tessa's Shop: Fluffalicious
Tessa is a very talented artist and a great spinner as well. She sells art yarn and spinning fiber as well as other knitting related goodies. She teaches knitting and yarn dyeing classes at Hanks Yarn & Fiber in Gainesville. She also has an etsy shop How to Use Art where she sells screenprinted clothing, bags, prints and more. You can read more about her art education and experience here.
