Fun stuff for me!

Today I mailed out my stitch markers for a swap. I think I'll pass on the next round. I am getting a little stitch markered out. Plus they were mailed late and I hate being a slacker. Lol.

Anyway that meant I had to go to the post office, and I wasn't expecting anything to be there yet. I've ordered an insane amount of roving. (Trust me you don't want to know) So I forgot that I had yarn coming that I traded for. I traded 4 skeins of merino style and my two skeins of sherbert lornas for a skein of sea silk. I really didn't want to trade the lornas but I can get more. And I really wanted the sea silk lol. So that came today. I have no idea what color it is...it doesn't say on the label, but it's very pretty. Emerald, burgundy, gold, and a few other patches of colors. She even wrapped it up all pretty!I also got some of the roving I ordered. I got this first one off of etsy from Flawful Fibers. I bought it mainly because I'm seriously in love with the colors, but also because I wanted to touch bfl. It's called Amore and I think the name is very appropriate because I love it.I also got two rovings from the Yarn Wench. They are merino and so very soft and gorgeous. The blue green one is called Skydancer 2 and is 4.2 ounces. The other one is 3.8 ounces in She's Not a Shy Girl. I will DEFINITELY be ordering more from her.The rest I will tell you about when I get it. I will tell you though that it's from Funky Carolina and beyond gorgeous.

I also finished up the Ms. Marigold vest that I started not that long ago. Here's a pic. I'm really happy with how it came out. I just have to weave in the two strands from sc around the arm holes.Other than that stuff though, that's about it. Oh yeah I did finish spinning the first half of the dusty melons roving. I really need to get more bobbins to finish up spinning that and the pink stuff. I really want to finish something already so I can knit with it! I'm thinking wed or thurs this week I'll be able to go and get those. On friday I'm supposed to help my aunt with her purse business. I'll be gone all day helping my cousin actually and we have to drive to this big beauty expo thing to sell purses. I'm excited, it should be fun! They will teach me the ropes and when it gets busy, I'll be able to do the "purse parties" as she calls them, on my own. So I won't be around on Friday.

Ok so I'll be around, next time will probably be to show off more roving!

So many delightful goodies to feast my eyes upon! The sea silk is gorgeous and I love the Yarn Wench. I have several of her rovings, but I especially love the Flawful Fibers roving you purchased. What gorgeous colors. You're going to have such fun spinning all that up. Oh and your vest? It looks gorgeous on you!
