.... You just mysteriously FOUND roving while cleaning? Wish I could do that! I do occasionally find things, but not roving. I seem to be mysteriously running out of roving... Im pretty sure my wheel eats half of it when Im not looking.

Hi guys - sadly, I've been packing boxes for my upcoming move so I haven't been able to spin at all for over a week (aka: too dang long) and I haven't taken pictures of what I do have finished. But I did get Pluckyfluff's "Handspun Revolution" for my birthday and now I'm dying to get some time with my wheel! I hope to join in next week again.

This week's Fiber Friday was amazing - I'd point out my favorites, but there's no point, every single one is absolutely stunning! I love how colorful everything is, and all the lovely textures! Oops, I've starting drooling again. Smiley

lol Exactly the feeling I was going for. One day I was looking at this wool I had dyed...hanging there drying and for some reason all these memories of Lisa Frank came to me. lol I bet I still have stickers and stationary back at my parents house left over from elementary school. lol  Thanks again!

this is a first time for me. My wheel does seem to eat a lot of my roving, kind of like the sock monster that lives in the dryer.

Make blog also has a good tutorial for a light box. I just made one using it so I could actually photograph my yarn well.

makes a huge difference, doesn't it? I'm so excited, I had a HUGE yarn/fiber photo shoot all willy nilly right after I finished mine. (which consisted of slapping the pieces together. I didn't use the screws, or glue)

Everything just seems to have better color and shape without using the flash. And dude, digital cameras rock since you can take a million pix and just keep the best ones! =0)
