Thank you for being such an awesome, thoughtful partner Smiley I can't wait to play with the locks. I haven't decided whether I'll pick them apart a bit or card them/

huzzah!  So happy you liked it!
I've picked the locks and spun them with okay results.  I haven't tried to card them yet, I'm afraid my 72tpi hand cards aren't fine enough.... But I suppose I could just try and see if they eat it.... Can't wait to see what you come up with!

Here's a good shot of the color of the yarn Smiley

Here are pics of what I send EdenKitty. The fiber pics aren't so great, but hope you can see them okay enough.

This is everything I sent... Starting with the large white ball in the lower left: 2 oz. (guessed) of cotton roving. Not sure if it's usable or not, but I had found a 2 lb bag of it in a 2nd hand store. I've not tried spinning with cotton before and don't know what it's like. Next 2 bags are merino top... I forget the color names (2 oz each). 3rd is a bit of some merino / silk that I had purchased myself. 4th (blues and purples) is another merino I think, but the colors are the same as she sent me. also 2 oz.  Then there are 2 crocheted plastic bag dish scrubbies, because I'm trying to find homes for the excess I made. and 2 knitting needles that I found on clearance while fiber shopping.... Edenkitty knits. In the center there are some fiber tools and a lucet, made out of fimo clay. The lucet "works" but is a little bendy due to the properties of fimo clay.

And I have a close up of the fiber tools in the middle:


it's an orifice hook, a threader, and ... I forget what the heart with holes in it is called.

I received a very nice package from our organizer DesignVigilante on Friday last week, so I took it outside and photographed it on a handwoven bread towel.

First was the hand dyed roving in a nifty rust inspired colorway.


Then my companion piece - a kit to start dying roving myself - 2 oz of the softest BFL wool & Magenta and Turquoise acid dyes


Finally, a pair of hand knit yoga socks that match my headband.  These are the coolest thing ever and are a big help for me because the studio gets so cold in the winter that I find it really hard to dance - my feet ache from the cold floor.  I've already worn them to the studio twice this week and they are fantastic.  Enough toe and heel poke out for me to have traction and to be able to spin & Dance.


Thank you so much for a very thoughtful and lovely package.

I wanted to share with you ladies what I made with the fiber Zombie_Queen sent me.  I didn't take pics of the skein (oops!)  but here are the finished objects!





yup you bet, a terrible photobooth photo that is pretty much my neck and chest.   Roll Eyes  forgive me?
