i dont know if i am allowed to be posting this, so if not, just remove this thread! ;)

anyways, i posted a while back about my family starting a business. we will be spinning novelty yarn.
if anyone remembers...we are starting the alpaca farm...
anyways, i was wondering if i could get a few mods to email me or some experienced knitters to email me. i wanted to see if i could send a few experienced knitters a sample of our yarn as "testers"
i would like it to be honestly critiqued. if you can help us, please email me!

thanks! :thumbsup:

its all going great! things are moving along quite nicely! we actually just went to an alpaca farm this past weekend....
alpacas are just the cutest things ever!!!

we have been selling on ebay right now (SIL has been spinning with roving she purchased) and have gotten ALL good feedback! :o)
we bought a spinning wheel, so that really helps our onine business get started....

i am working on the website this week...if we can ever decide on a name!!!

we should have land purchased by this fall, and hopefully animals shortly after, until then, we are spinning with purchased roving, not from our own animals...

very satisfied with our progress! i am very excited!! :D

You sure you don't want any novice knitters testing?? I mean... see about ease of use or something?

possibly! can anyone interested email me and let me know if you are experienced, new to knitting, or somewhere in the middle?
thats a good idea...thanks!
