Today, I changed the name of my Etsy shop from MonetsGardenArtYarns to www.PurpleLamb.Etsy.com. This small change has been quite a while in coming. I love Monet. I love all the images of his garden, and I find inspiration in both for my handspun yarns.
Nonetheless, it was too long, too hard to remember, and it didn't reflect the whimsy in my work, so PurpleLamb it is! Purple because that is my favorite color and the color I use more than any other. Lamb because I work in merino wool most of all, and everyone knows lambies are soft. If it isn't soft, I don't use it.
I'll be using this blog to post ideas and realities in my work as a fiber artist. I hope it will become a place for conversation with other fiber artists and fellow Etsians. Enjoy!
