Goodies in the Mail

4 samples of Shetland rovings in different colors.Isn't that scrumptious? These heavenly Shetland samples arrived in the mail the other day from Sharon. It's exciting because three of them, the white, brown, and light fawn are from her own Shetlands. The gray is from Sharon's neighbor Mim (who recently started her own blog). I am very pleased to have these additions for my Shetland Sampler Cardigan.

The light fawn comes from Sharon's Nevada State Fair Reserve Grand Champion. That will give my cardigan a little more brag factor, don't you think? The fact is, with the all the lovely samples from blogging friends, this cardigan will be really special to me.

At the moment, these are nestled in a basket where I can admire and pet them while I finish spinning samples of various preparations with the Polwarth. But I should be able to start spinning them soon.

  1. Actually the gray is Mim's - another proof that my handwriting sucks. Our state fair has a Made in Nevada category, so I'm trying to spin enough to weave a lap robe. My favorite? I've discovered that my favorite is whomever I'm spinning at the moment. I say I'd never wear a sweater but your samples are really calling to me.

  2. OH! Not your handwriting, just my assumption. I've changed it now, so all is well. :)

  5. Oh, those are simply gorgeous. What I'd really like to see is the back side of your knitting to see what it looks like. T.
