Yay! I am glad you like the batts!

I have one of those mini sock blockers on my keychain, and when I have left over bits of sock yarns or handspun, I knit them up to show them off to the world!

Have fun spinning!

You're welcome maiziemama-so happy you like it!
My poor bunny really needed a trim. It's been so hot that he runs into the room when you turn on the AC!

I received from macreede!
Here is the first beauty:


And here is the best roving ever (in my opinion  Wink):

I love grey and green together and the green is a wonderful bright green!

Those rovings are so beautiful, I have to try to take better photos that show off the wonderful colours.
Thank you so much macreede!  Grin

The top 2 pics are what I received from LizzieMcGuire and they are totally awesome.  Can't decide which I like best.  The other 2 pics are what I sent to her.  She asked me to post them again to see if I could get the colors to show up any brighter.

It is comming your way! I'm guessing it's flying over the ocean now as we speak.

I haven't decided yet if I'll be spinning of felting the beautiful wool you sent me.
I just bought the lovely book "Intertwined" to help me out in my spinning.
What a shock to see my etsy store referenced!

Intertwined is like the spinning Bible.  I LOVE it!!  And congrats on your shop being in there!

I got your package the other day and it is one of the most gorgeous batts I have ever seen!

I was actually speechless when I pulled it out!  Now will I have the guts to spin it?!  I almost just want to frame it and put it on my wall!
I'm really excited to spin these and watch all the colors swirl together! Sooo soft.


Thanks so much!!!

I had fun putting the batt together for you.
I don't have a carding drum, so used a technique I use to prepare felting to hand make the batt. The colours I picked are ones I've always wanted to spin (but haven't yet. Hopefully my next project). They make me think "cute & french"

Enjoy!  Smiley
