Just bookmarked it.

Since my partner and I sent our things on Monday, I was hoping to have them today..

Finished spinning & plying maiziemama's hand dyed targhee (gotta get me a fleece of this!).  I posted a pic on the May Gallery: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=246264.10

okay, here's my awesome swap stash from my partner, Muller's Lane!  I'm loving every single fiber tidbit Cheesy



contents include: ugly batts, CVM, BFL, some bits of merino and mohair, icelandic, and more!  I'm spinning the rainbowish batts with the little chunk of CVM and some sparkle- I'll post results later.

yay!  I hope she loves what I sent!

I tried posting this yesterday but I ended up getting drug off camping.
I got some sweet batts from Punkinpunk! There are two of them (and they look alike so I only photographed one!) It's called black magic. Wool silk, and firestar.

I love it. I think its just FANTASTIC.
Though I got this knit dragon pattern at the estes park wool market and every shiny batt I see latley looks like it would be perfect for this dragon.  Grin
THANKS!

I received my wonderful package from goldfish girl today! 

I'll apologize now about the pictures. My husband has made off with the camera, so I'm borrowing our camera from work.  I'm not used to it (and it takes bad pictures, too.. even at work!), so, I'm sorry!!!

The first set is "Fi-ya!"



.. a blend of Dorset wool from Lola, the ewe, red polyester, and Columbia wool from a mr. named "Top Flight" (LOVE the names! Smiley )

The little mini batts coordinate well with this lovely roving:



And then! "Swap Thing," a blend of Dorset wool (from Lola, also!) and brown millends from Brown Sheep:



I think the photo makes them look like little candies or something edible? Maybe those hard ribbon candies?

I can't wait to spin up everything. Thank you, goldfishgirl!

Came home last night to a wonderful bulging bag from hobbledehoy.

What color!  What sparkle!!  I'm loving these!

What is a real hoot is when Paul (DH) gets excited when he sees a fiber package  and starts coveting the fiber!! 

Merinos, bamboo, soy silk, cotton, sparkle ... what more can a spinner want??

I've not spun bamboo or cotton so this is a real treat!

I've taken pictures but left the cord at home.  I will upload tomorrow.

I'm soooo excited about spinning these!!

Thank You, Thank You, Thank You Hobbledehoy!!
