Tea party is amazing! I have been spinning, but I haven't set the twist or photographed much, so nothing to show from me this week.

where did you find bamboo to dye?  is there a website i can go to?  I love the vibrant colors it had, and the one before it... I LOVED LOVED LOVED the strand of pearls intertwined.  Absolutely amazing.

Hi, punkmandi!  Here are some links to get bamboo fiber:

Woolery:  http://www.woolery.com/Pages/fibers.html#exotic

Paradise Fibers:  http://www.paradisefibers.net/Bamboo-Spinning-Fiber-s/358.htm

You have to dye it with cellulose dyes (Procion MX) instead of acid dyes, which don't work at all.  It's more of a pain in the butt to dye, but completely worth it, because the colors are amazing! 

And thanks about the other yarn, too - a friend came over with all sorts of fun goodies (and a Pat Green drum carder), so all sorts of fun stuff (like the faux pearls and sequins, etc) wound up in the batts.

YOu guys are awesome!!!  Smiley  I hope to get some photos up soon of the measley 4 skiens I've spun this month..  stoopid painting, packing and moving..  but the unpacking is going faster than the packing, so we hope to be done by this weekend!!  YAY!!

Is it bad to say I can't wait until the wedding is over and life goes back to normal?  FOURTEEN DAYS!!!
