Yeah, I am so glad you enjoyed it all, even I was amazed that I got that much yardage.  LOL!  I am glad to send off some of my extras to someone that will enjoy them, I have way too much here and was getting overwhelmed.  LOL!  I am off to spin my batts now!  Woohoo!

Okay, here are pictures of the lovely yarn Instar sent me. Two skeins of alpaca dyed with koolaid and rit. She sent a pattern for the branching out scarf as well.

Wow!  Shocked I 've been completly spoiled by red_willow!  THANK YOU!!  Sorry it has taken me a while to post, and unfortunately I can't upload my pictures since my home modem is dying and uploading takes forever!!  I will try and go to the library and upload this week so you all can see the gorgeous yarn and goodies.

She sent some amazing handspun merino in a gorgeous red "mojave" colorway. ( 300+ yards!!)  to make a mini clapotis plus:
-extra mojave roving
-some faux cashmere roving
-buffalo fiber
-tencel roving
-lots of german candy and tea( this might not make it for the photo shoot Wink)
-handmade soap and candles
-a lavender sachet
all together wrapped up like a magic ball inside of a handmade one skein project bag she made!!


She went over the top!

Thank you fyberduck!
I received this beautiful superwash sock yarn:

With it came some pretty needles in a size I really did not have - and my first set of coloured ones, too!

I just have to finish a pair of X-mas gift socks, and then I'm ready for some handspun beauty... Cheesy

 Grin Yay finally got mine from maziemama thanks so much. Between the postoffice sending it back, christmas and customs (they opened and resealed the box, who knew yarn could be dangerous!) I got the box and they really battered the tar out of it so I am glad there was nothing breakable. I got some lovely handspun yarn that was going to be a hat but it is so pretty that it might become a baby sweater for some good friends of ours who would love it. Some really pretty roving
Where did you get that roving I would love some more?
and some hot coco and the Holiday knits mag that I hadn't picked up yet! yay!
thanks so much!

The postman finally relinquished the yarn Snowberrylime spun for me, yesterday:

- 2 skeins "Missy Piggy" (peach/ violet Australian lambswool) - I wound 'em together so I won't lose one Grin
- 2 skeins "Waldboden" (greens wool/ silk)
- 1 hank of painted silk roving
- and some yummy chocolate that's disappearing rapidly

Thank you, Snowberrylime!

Glad you like it and everything arrived well! Chocolate has that sort of ability, I'm thinking... Tongue
