*gasp* no Fiber Friday?? I guess everyone was busy "celebrating" 4/20, hm? Wink Kidding... haha.
Anyway, here's all I have... I will have some more finished stuff for next week, though!


100% merino wool
approx 60 yards
super bulky, 5-6 wpi

Spun it for the April birthday swap. Smiley

I love it!  Those are colors that I just adore!

I suppose I should get my drop spindle back out and try again.  The first batch (as with most spinners I'm sure) was pretty horrible.  lol

that's really lovely!!  I've just gotten back on my wheel (after knitting for a while, no it's not done yet... I needed a break!)  and only have 1.5 bobbins full.  Hopefully by next week it will be complete Cheesy

And I just want to let everyone who looks that the Tour de Fleece challenge (for those joining the team) for this week has been posted.  Here's the link, so you don't have to go hunting!

Thanks everyone! I just ordered 5 pounds of fiber... haha. So I'll definitely be busy dyeing and spinning... probably more dyeing so I have stuff prepared for Tour de Fleece. I also have two more pounds of alpaca fleece coming my way soon! It'll be my first time preparing raw fiber... yikes.
