Yeah, I love FF!!  Everything looks awesome so far.  I especially love Blue Planet, Raspberry Latte and Igloo.  But all of them ROCK!!!!   Shocked

Here is my one lonely contribution this week.  I really need to find more spinning time.  Smiley

Taste the Rainbow--122 yards of handspun, plied with a varigated cotton crochet thread in pastel rainbow colors like the yarn.  Made from the October Batts from Traveling Rhino's Club.  Contains BFL, Superwash Merino, Domestic and Targhee Wools with Nylon & Angelina sparklies.

I love how this one came out!  It will stripe with wide non-repeating stripes!

I got my amazing package from TAOJ today!!!!!!!!  Thank you so very much, it rocks!!!!!

An amazing handmade sock sack with some hand-dyed wool yarn!  The sack is so great, perfect for knitting on the go, with a grommet on the top to lead the yarn through.  I LOVE THE FABRIC!!!!!  So awesome!

And an awesome matching needle roll!!!!!!  It is so nicely made, I love the stitching on it.  I will be the envy of everyone at my SnB meeting next week for sure.

Thank you so much TAOJ for angeling for me!!!  It was so worth the wait!!

Everything is fantastic as usual.  I haven't been here in a while and haven't done much spinning, but here are my two latest!!

Circus Parade---144 yards of dk to worsted weight Corriedale, handspun.  From 2oz of roving from the Traveling Rhinos October deluxe monthly club, Rainbow Connections.

Freak Show---68 yards and 4.2 whopping oz of crazy handspun goodness. A huge and chunky yarn!  There is wool, bamboo, mohair and tons of bling and glitz.  This was spun from an awesome "oh hell" batt from the talented HollyEQQ!

Freak Show was totally outside of my usual box and a really fun spin!  Smiley

Well I sent 3 skeins of handspun to Zero Cool for her wish.  Here is a photo of the main one. 

Sherbet, 270 yards fingering weight.  Fresian & Shetland

The two others were smaller art skeins, I can't find the photos.

And I sent mlsocci74 the same sort of package as kaissa, I haven't heard from her, but know she has gotten it from the tracking numbers.  I hope you are enjoying it.

I never did receive any other packages, just one of the three I should have.  Shame on those that flaked, at least you could do is let poor kitschween know you couldn't do it.  Sorry it just makes me sad that people shirk like that.  So much for the Christmas spirit.  Sad
