I love you guys.

Some really great yarns this week. My favorites so far are Casmir's blue yarn, Zombie Queen's seafoam, and Antsy's romney. I want them all, please! Thank you!

Ha ha. Here are my contributions:
I took the dirty and noils from the fleece I've been combing and Navajo plied these short 44 yards. I could very easily have gotten more but as I was spinning little bits of dust and dirt were floating into my sinuses. I think I'm going to use them for stuffing from now on, as my husband suggested.


And now that Grand Canyon Frost I told you about! I love it! I spun it really thin (that seems to be all I can do for singles anymore) and got about 2 bobbins full. Then I Navajo plied it. I didn't know how it would come out, and was almost regretting it while plying because it seems since I learned how to Navajo it's all I want to do, but while I was winding it onto my Niddy Noddy  I decided I really like it. I got about 75 yards from 1 bobbin and 115 yards from the other.


I should also mention that today was so nice, I sat outside to ply it. First sunburn of the year!

I just got finished spinning my latest spinning the seasons from Knit on Etsy. It's called Grand Canyon Frost, very interesting roving. I'm thinking about Navajo plying it today so maybe I'll post pics later. I have another to share, too, but I think I wanna finish Grand Canyon Frost first. You should all be shivering with anticipation!

Holy crap! You're picture there makes me want more fiber. "I don't have nearly a bed full, even a baby bed full, I must be missing out..."

heh. the sad thing is that's not even everything...  Roll Eyes  I think the problem is that I'm still buying as if I'm still spinning all the time, but I've hardly been spinning at all recently...  Cheesy

I'm willing to bet I'm not the only addict person on these boards who would be willing to take some of that off your hands. I mean, if you really wanted us in your CAL, you would be offering a batt/roving to every participant (which it looks like you could afford to).

I'm just messing with you. I am a FF regular (now) so I will totally be following along, even if I don't spin for uber-stash busting.
 
So it turns out a friend of mine knows about a sheep farm near me.... Dorset he say's.  ZOMGOSH!  Not the best wool ever, but I could likely go shear a sheep myself!!! COOOOL.  must call them!!
Oh, yeah, I still have most of a fleece to comb. maybe I can do that for this CAL? I am getting 3 more in May! Overload, maybe, but I think it will be fun, especially since I have learned so much cleaning/combing/spinning this one!

I was sitting in traffic this morning thinking about this swap and the best idea popped into my head for Jexxican Smiley. I'll keep it to myself for now just in case we end up getting partnered together.
Damn, now I have to sign up! You were thinking about me in traffic? I feel so special.

I am Bronchosaurus Jex today and yes, I have been making really bad jokes in my sleep deprived, sinus congested delirium all day. Well, for a few days now. I will survive, and my chest pains are lessening. Thanks for all of your kind words. Sounds like Yarn or Fabric and bluepaisan are both in lots of pain too. I don't like being sick. My husband wouldn't even let me make dinner. And he keeps telling me to shut up because my voice is so bad.

I did start my large a bit last night, but decided to stop before said delirium ruined it irreversibly.

I am finito!  Th is was THE most enjoyable swap I have ever done.
You can't be done yet! I am barely starting! I've been trying to but I was really busy trying to get ready for my first event (as in I was supposed to have a booth at the Baby Boomer Expo at our Civic Center, lot sof $ and time in prep work) and then I got sick, had to cancel it and ended up in the ER this morning. So I have barely started yours! You can't be done yet!

really getting started on my large today!
At least, I hope it will count as a large.
Also, I think I have at least one small thought up, but will it work?
