No tricks here - treats for sure!
One fiber that I had never had the chance to spin was qiviut. That changed when I bought a destash spindle from Peacecat on Ravelry. She lives in Alaska and told me that she sells qiviut (free shipping to boot!) so of course it was the perfect opportunity for me to get some.
This arrived in the mail.
It's a qiviut/silk blend and I can't imagine a softer, more luxurious fiber than this!
I will be spinning it with a Tabachek spindle so that the experience is exquisitely savored.
Also a treat.....
meet Twitter's fleece. Twitter is a CVM/Romeldale who lives in Washington State and her shepherd is Joy (sheepgirl on Rav). This is a gorgeous fleece - soft with lovely long locks!
One more treat was a visit to Celtic Cast On's blog today to see pics of the cutest Little Red Riding Hood and her big but not-so-bad wolf. They win my award for best Hallowe'en costume this year for sure!
On a sadder note, my sunroom now looks like this.
Although we don't have snow yet (knock on wood), it's too cold to work there comfortably any more so all the fiber equipment has been moved indoors.
