Fiber Goody Bag

I didn't realize that I haven't posted since Sunday(!) Now that the Computer Design Workshop is getting ready to enter the official wrapping up stage (making way for an Online Guild Crochet Technique Workshop next month), I've been on a knitting spree, with Shetland sheepies on the needles for the right front of my Rare Breed Sweater.

But! If Christmas comes in January somewhere in the universe, then I'm there! Judy sent me a scrumptious fiber goody package. I am very excited because they are all from breeds I've never worked with before.

Starting at the top and working clockwise: Falkland (white), Black Welsh, Texel (white), Cheviot (light grey), Norwegian (white), and Massam (grey). These are tops which are beautifully prepared and just beg to jump right to the wheel.

Currently on the wheel is nothing, so how will I be able to resist? In preparation for the wheel, is the black Rambouillet, which fortunately survived Rascal's infatuation. It has been washed and is becoming luciously soft rolags.

I love having several projects going on at the same time. I firmly believe in taking frequent breaks to rest my eyes and change my position and posture. What better way to take a break than to switch to the next project! ;)

What a lovely goody box! I'm still envious of your new dishtowels. :-) T.

That's a really nice display of roving. I haven't done any spinning in a few months. Maybe coming here will inspire me to start spinning again!

Very nice bundles of fibre! Just looking at them makes me all goosebumpy! I could hardly imagine what spinning them would be like. You must spin soon so that we can have a report!

All your posts have been wonderful! I have enjoyed them and been inspired! I am getting my loom all set up I just have to figure out what I want to weave, if I have the materials to do what I want (Isn't it always that you're inspired to do something, but don't have that warp, weft, fiber in your stash to do it with?)

Thank you so much, Kathy! I would love to know what you come up with. Inspiration is the best part of the process.
