Garn Studio Baby Ull

Does anyone have a source for Garn Studio Baby Ull? I've got a sweater nearly done, but need one additional skein. Unfortunately I threw out the label, and the color card on Garn Studio's website is wrong. I can say it's a deep red (not burgundy, definitely red). Don't care what dye lot it is as long as I can get the color. Any help anyone can provide would be most appreciated.

What Was I Thinking??

About a year ago, during a monthly meeting of the Outer Banks Fiber Guild, we were planning the workshops for the next 12 months. I was wanting to learn how to spin using a drop spindle, so made the suggestion of the workshop and offered to make a drop spindle for each of the participants as my contribution to the workshop.

The workshop is this Saturday. We have an excellent instructor lined up, and as promised, each person will get their very own drop spindle to use and take home. The pic shows 10 of the 20 being made. In retrospect, it turned out to be a bigger project than I at first thought. One of the bigger decisions was to make eithera top whorl or low whorl spindle. I finally chose to make the low whorl. I'll let you know how the workshop turns out. Either we will have some nicely spun yarn . . . or a nice bonfire and weener roast!
