Don't you love friends who love fiber? The above picture is some yarn that my friend from Oregon sent me. Thanks Jackie! It is the softest merino yarn that I have ever felt. It is a heavy lace weight. Incredible yardage! 950 yards to 3 1/2 ounces. She bought it on Ebay through this seller.
Another friend gave me this yarn. Thanks Cindy! It is a variegated rayon boucle. I cannot wait to warp my loom with this stuff and weave a chenille shawl. A definite yuuuuuuuummmmmmmmmm!
This is some roving that the same friend gave me as a finder fee for a spinning wheel that was looking for a new home. It was hand painted by the person that has this shop on Etsy. I am a group spinner. I like to spin with a group. It is not something that I do when I am at home by myself. I like to sit, spin, and visit. Of course, that is probably why I am not a good spinner. I do not pay close enough attention to my twist and when I am ready to ply my yarn, I discover all these little cork screws of over spinning. I tend to think I am getting better at it, until I ply! Face it, I just enjoy fellowship with other fiber friends. That is not such a bad thing!
