“Eye of newt, and toe of frog,
Wool of bat, and tongue of dog,
Adder’s fork, and blind-worm’s sting,
Lizard’s leg, and howlet’s wing,–
For a charm of powerful trouble,
Like a hell-broth boil and bubble.”

If you have a lot of friends on Facebook, your News Feed can be an array of status updates, links and photos. 

So you’re a 7 Yaks Design fan, but Facebook won’t let you stay up to the minute on all that’s happening?

I feel your pain, instead of letting Facebook determine which friends and pages you’d most like to see first, now you can choose the pages and friends to stay at the top of your News Feed.

Hooray!

Facebook announced that the News Feed has been updated to show you content that matters to you the most by allowing users to prioritize which friends and pages are featured in their News Feed.

Here’s how to get what you want to see on Facebook:

Step 1: From the Facebook app on your smart phone, tap the More button located in the corner (it looks like 3 lines). Then, scroll to the bottom of the resulting menu and select News Feed Preferences near the bottom of the list.

From your desktop Facebook, go to your settings menu and then choose News Feed Preferences.  If you’re on the 7 Yaks Design Facebook Page, it’s even easier.  There’s a drop down menu if you mouse over the ‘Liked’ button.  Then choose ‘See First’!

Step 2: On your smart phone, tap Prioritize who to see first at the top of the resulting page and choose whose posts you don’t want to miss, whether pages or friends. Tap Done in the upper-left corner when finished to implement the changes.

It’s even easier on the desktop, just click on the photo of the page or person!

Angelina Spinning Fiber is terrific for blending with your favorite wool roving for added bling. 
A little Angelina will go a long way!  Angenlina is a great way to jazz up your handspun yarns or batts before you spin and add a little zing!

Elasticity can also be added to handspun yarns or batts with nylon fibers such as Snow Mountain or StarbrightFirestar will creates a shimmer in your yarn, similar to the addition of silk.  You will find that adding nylon will create a yarn with more memory, which is especially important when knitting socks!

All 7 Yaks Design fibers are hand dyed with professional dyes that are both lightfast and washfast for long lasting, fade resistant color.

 

Well who would have thought a small thing like my design for a fiber group project, assigned the theme of ‘Wintery Mix’, would someday find its way into Vogue Knitting!

I am excited beyond words to be a part of a magazine that I have loved for years.

I was transformed into a little girl at the grocery store when I saw the magazine on the news stand.

Much like Charlie in Willy Wonka when he revealed the gold certificate, I felt a special glow inside when I turned the pages, and saw my red snowflake gauge for the first time!

It would be hard for Christmas morning to top the childlike wonder that I felt.

Special thanks to Faith Hale, Products Editor of Vogue Knitting, for contacting me!

If you like my designs, I would be thrilled to have you as a fan on Facebook.  Please join me at 7 Yaks Design Fan Page .

A customer asked if she could get a picture of some of my roving when it is unpackaged.

She was a new customer and wanted an idea of how much roving is contained in a 1/2 oz package.
This is what the picture on my etsy site looks like.

This is what it looks like when you get it out of the package.

Anyone can see the difference.

This customer went on to buy a good amount of my roving once she was better able to see what see was getting.

This on-line business is amazing. I was able to: receive the customer’s question, take pictures, send pictures to her, receive her order, get payment, and pack up the order for shipment all in a few minutes on a Sunday afternoon and it shipped out of the country to boot!

It is also very cool to get orders and make new friend from all over the world.

This sure beats having my old “brick and mortar” store.

I am in the process of updating the listings on all of my roving, but so far sales are up and things are looking good.

 

BTW…You can learn more about me, my life and art, and upcoming sales, etc. by following me on Twitter and adding me as a friend on Facebook(Lynne Morgan, the one with the 7 Yaks logo).  I look forward to meeting you.

I want to thank Phat Fiber for highlighting my etsy shop and some of my original accessories for knitter and felters, as well as patterns and kits, plus some nice lampwork beads.

Phat Fiber is a nifty site for people interested in handmade items.

From their site…
Phat Fiber is a mystery box of awesome samples for the yarn and fiber enthusiast in us all. With a focus on the independant artisan, this box is a super grass-roots treat for the senses.

When your box arrives, chock full of samples, expect to be overwhelmed with the sight and feel of artful yarns, bits of roving, small batts, stitch markers, original patterns, valuable discount coupons and much much more.

Inside, you could find anything that yarn and fiber enthusiasts would love…even an herbal tea or two!

Phat Fiber seeks to bridge the gap between talented online artisans and consumers hungry to support the independent small business.”

If you get a chance, stop by their site… (My stuff is on their blog for Dec. 14, 2008.)

Part of their nice comments…
“Take a look at Lynne’s shop! She really has everything there! I am personally eyeing the sock blocks! No splinters or mildew from being wet like wood sometimes does! I think she even has some “blond moment” ones on clearance *grin* She has a fancy laser that she uses to cut out and engrave original designs! So, for all of you small business owners out there, get a hold of Seven Yaks and have them do some promotional gauges for you! She does wholesale her products- what a great opportunity!”

How nice. 🙂

I’ve also included a link on the left for easy access in the future.
