I'll start with the old one. I've had this baby spun up forever, but I've been pretty busy lately. I now have the time to actually post it. I don't have a name for it.

Here's the ball of fiber when I bought it:

and when I spun it, I wound up with two big balls (hold your jokes Wink )

I am way more excited about the fiber I spun this morning. My boyfriend and I took a trip across Missouri to KC to see Nine Inch Nails. In the middle of our roadtrip, I saw a BILLBOARD for a FIBER STUDIO! I freaked out and noted that we'd have to stop by. This place had more fiber than any other place I've been in personally (sans fiber festivals, of course)! I didn't have much cash, so I had to be cheap. I picked up a mix bag of 6 different shades of this soft cotton fiber. It is the softest fiber I have ever spun with! What a dream!

Here is the bag after I used a little of the fiber:

and I spun up half of it this morning:

I can't express in writing HOW SOFT this stuff is. I'm definetely making a hat out of it. Soft, lightweight...perfect for spring!

The next fiber I will be spinning was bought back in November. I just haven't touched it, yet, because I'm bad like that.

Here she be:

Anybody suggest anything fancy? hehe

I find myself leaning over in my bed just to feel the cotton. It's so soft. I actually found it a lot easier to spin than most of the wool I get. Strange! I guess I just looooove soft things.

The concert was amazing, by the way!
