Ok, you got me!  I ordered a couple of pounds (and I'm not even a spinner/weaver/felter)!  I figured it might be fun to try felting with my nieces and nephews - they always want to do "a craft" when they come over so I'm always looking for things little hands can do.  It should be fun!  Thanks for yet another addiction (and I'm not trying to be funny), I do appreciate it!!!

Support your local animal shelters and be a responsible pet owner by spaying or neutering your pet.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome is waaaay more than being tired - imagine having the flu every day, quadruple that, and that's me on a good day!  No, I did not stay up too late last night either.....

I know where my next paycheck is going...just four more days to wait, too!  I love the browns/whites and blacks/whites.  So, technically, if you dye some of that, only the white would catch the dye and the brown or black would stay that color?

Thanks for the link!

tapedonwings: yeah, that's what would happen if you dyed the black/white roving. I saw some that had been dyed online with a pink dye and it turned out to be black/pink. AWESOME! I don't know what would happen if you overdyed the brown though. It might mix with the color.

Kelly green and black...mmmm...

Actually, depending on how dark the brown is, I think the color is just muted.  Three more days left!

I couldn't resist...I hope they have enough to go around after we all get through with them!  I have a couple of pounds on the way.  Does anyone know how long the shipping takes?

Oh man, if I had found this place before I first bought roving, I could've had almost 11 lbs instead of 4 lbs for $90 (after shipping). That would be so mind-bogglingly cool.....   Hmm...   I have a paycheck coming in next week....   >.>
