I used something like 10 packs of kool-aid for each color. lol It was fun! I had blue hands for a few days though, some got into my gloves. Glad you like it!

I got my 2 packages today with lots of goodies! From Loves2Experiment I got this pretty bit of fiber- Merino silk blend and a little extra bump off the side of some more pretty fiber because the bigger was only 3.5 oz. What a spoiler! I loved the inspiration picture too. Under the Sea

the next yum bunch was from Dragonflyducky and she really put together some more great stuff! I got merino and a side portion of bamboo, some lovely shiney angelina stuffs to match. Plus way cool stitch markers that matched my fiber.

Also a very awesome picture to go off of.
Thanks so very much to my wonderful swap pals! I love every bit of my pretty fiber! Now to keep my friends out of it.... Grin

That turquoise/brown combo is so pretty!  I can't wait to see the yarn you spin with that roving Smiley

Ready for more fiber?  I received a fab package from dragonflyducky this evening!  The colours she selected for my roving is totally perfect for me!  This is one roving that I'm gonna hoard for a bit before spinning Smiley  She also threw in extras - delectable bamboo, glitz in colours that will go well with the roving she sent, and awesome stitch markers!!  dragonflyducky, thanks so much for swapping with me!  Kiss

dragonflyducky, you were spot on with the inspiration photo you selected!  I'm impressed that you were able to replicate the colours for the fiber!  I really do love what you dyed for me!  Hopefully, my batch of dyed fiber will get to you quickly!!

I received my 2nd dyed fiber this evening...from Thenutmeg2000 Cheesy 

She did an excellent job on dyeing the fiber...the colours totally match the picture of the mythical creature she chose for inspiration!  I love the combination of purples, blues and in-between shades Smiley



Thanks Thenutmeg2000!! Kiss

I'm glad you like it, I was a bit worried because the fiber looked roughed up, but was still super soft!

(grr... I had a whole post written and hit cmd+q by accident. RESET)

I'm so so sorry my fiber friends that I've been MIA.  I've been dealing with chronic pelvic pain (we think it's attributed to endometriosis but aren't sure yet.) that make me not want to move, let alone use my gorgeous wheel!  I love everyone's fiber!  We should do another challenge, it was fun and I think everyone really rose to the occasion!

I love the fiber I received from freestyle and .:dollface:., thank you!!

from freestyle:

my mom totally swiped this right away to feel it and cuddle!  it's so soft and gllittery!

and from .:dollface:. :

organic cotton is my FAVORITE fiber to touch (I haven't tried spinning it yet, but I LOVE how it feels)

THANK YOU!
