UUUUUUUH WEEEEEE!  It finally made it!!  I was worried that it was taken hostage also!

Freestyle & I went back & forth for a few weeks before we came up with what the mug would say.  I so cherish the one she made for me last year.

I checked out your Kaboodle list and ordered the embroidery book for you.  Noticed you also had lincoln longwool on the list and grabbed some from my stash.  While I was in the fiber room, I thought I'd spoil you with some camel down & angora (I love angora, but it doesn't love me! Someone gave me the angora not knowing I was allergic to it. I regifted it to you)

Speaking of which, since it will be some time before you'll be able to wear the shawl & scarf, feel free to regift it!

My husband made the nostepinne.  I keep an extra one in my fiber bag in case I need to wind a center pull ball from my wheel when I'm out and about spinning in public.

I had more soap packed in there for you, but I needed to keep the package under 5 lb because of postage.  (That one is Honeyed Almond using honey from my bee hives.)

I am sooo glad you like your swap box!

Oh MLF, I could never regift those beautiful knitted items! I want them all for ME!!!  Grin I am sure that ptarmic wumpus is totally spot on with her prediction.

I put your soap in my craft room and it is making the whole room smell amazing! I think I will just use it as an air freshener Grin

I was wondering if you had any suggestions for how to process the raw lincoln wool. It is so pretty, I can't wait to spin it up!

Thank you again for everything!!

You'll want to spin that with a very, very, very low twist.  The staple length is so long, it will be hard to card it.  If you have combs, you can use that to prep it. 

Since you'll be spinning at a very, very, very low twist, I'd wait to wash it until after it is spun.  Pick & fluff the fiber by hand and spin from the lock.

If you don't spin with a very, very, very low twist, it will get ropey.

Here's a few more shots of the goodies sent to Sansa:











I REALLY love the jewelry roll, too!  I have more of the same material, so I may make another with it.  I have several other IKEA fabrics that would be just as nice...we'll see what I feel like!
