I got my package from Tristitia! It is a lovely package with fun colours. The roving is a lovely merino dyed in two colour ways. One is a sort of neutral way and the other is a blue/wine tone colourway. Gosh I suck at describing colours. She also sent a lovely skein of fingering weight from knitpicks (100% Peruvian Wool) and I look forward to dyeing it.


Now I just need to finish mine. I dyed it yesterday (and today) but I don't know if I'm satisfied yet.

Okay, I finally bite the bullet and sent my package. Should be there in just a few days.

Here are the pictures of chipper's wonderful roving and surprise:

a closeup:


and my surprise goodies:

(when I press the bags, I'll retake and repost the picture better.)

these are hand-dyed, silk made into drawstring bags.

Thank you so much chipper! I love my roving. This weekend will take with me to mom's and begin to spin it. Then I'll post those pictures!
