I wanted to display my hand-spun yarn on something other than a nail hammered into the wall. So, my husband and I went to John Campbell Folk School in Brasstown NC to participate in the blacksmith class. You can see tools of the trade in the photos. The anvil, the forge, the tongs holding a hook. There I am, as hot as the fire to bend iron. Got it hot, hit it hard and ready to display my hand-spun yarn.
