LOVE LOVE LOVE your scarf!

Ive done both dyed roving and spun up wool....like dyeing the wool in roving form. I find you get more versitiliy in color since your going to be stretching it out while drafting/spinning.  Ive had the bad experience too of spending a whole bunch of hours spinning undyed wool than dyed it and hated the color (which sucked after all that work)

Love your use of buttons, they are adorable and your color-lot is very nice too

I sent out my yarn this morning as soon as the post opened (feb 20th)  I Hope she gets it in time by the 1st of March *nervously biting nails*

I sent a plied boucle style wildly colored 80 yard skein that I named "Happenstance"
Im going to have to now get a facebook page so I can follow this (swore I would never do facebook hmm)

Wow nesse!   Your corespuns are amazing, actually all your yarns are!
I have to give corespinning a try
I dont like taking picks of "mohairy things" either...the halo kinda blurs the pic.  That with sparkly fibers too, really hard to photo

cheyenne looking good for your 4th try, when i first started off on the drop spindle I didnt park so much and my 1st couple skeins were way overtwisted

Happy ff!!

hey Jaded Jen
I use a dremel tool
but be careful...I did get some breakage and the shells get really hot.  A big downside is that as your drilling the smell of burning hair fills the room
