Doesn't freestyle usually organize these? I wonder where she's at these days. Smiley

I'm around! Sortof.  Roll Eyes  I'm taking a swapping hiatus while things are crazy around here- new jobs, houses, parents moving, people having babies and surgeries- it's totally nuts. You guys have a blast with the next round! I pass the whimsie torch to the next organizer!  Smiley

I have those scrappy arm warmers from lapoli and can vouch that they are awesome!

Hey atsuko, we need to get together soon for spinning. And I have something for you...

LaughingLark, do you have scotch tension on your wheel? If so, you may want to try loosening the tension on the brake band. Too much tension causes the fiber to be pulled onto the bobbin too quickly.

Ok, back to washing alpaca.

freestyle, I'd love some bright and vivd roving for my mom's felting obsession  Smiley

Bright is my specialty.  Cheesy  Any color preferences?

anyone want rovings, batts, dyed yarn, or handspun?
Is that a rhetorical question, like "does anyone want to win the lottery?"  Tongue

Lol, I'll take that as "all of the above".  Cheesy
