Wall 'o Color

A dear friend of mine always talks about her "wall o' yarn"!  I have never seen it, but since our relationship started out as customer/shop owner, I sort of have an idea of what her wall might look like.  As I contemplate the best way to display the beautiful hand dyed roving from the folks over at Lorna's Laces, she pops into my head.
I like roving to be braided.  It does a couple of things for the visual palate.  First, it's neat.  It's sort of like long hair.  It can look ruffled or bunched together or one can take the time to do a nice french braid.  I'd be the one who would have to beg a friend to braid for me.  And so it goes at Renaissance Yarns!  Our beautiful roving arrives in two boxes.  I know what you're thinking, but let's face it; variety is the spice of life!  Luckily, Lexi knows how to braid (and it she did not in the beginning, by the time she's done she is a pro).  She begins the task of braiding ALL of our newly arrived roving.  Here is the fruit of our labor and what we fondly refer to as our "wall o' color".  Thanks, Dianne, for the inspiration!
