Today my sweet sheep order finally got here and it was WELL worth waiting for. Here are pics and details. Each one is 4 ounces of superwash merino tencel, and sooooo soft and shiny.
Ivy:Body Electric:And my personal favorite: Weeping CherryI can't wait to spin one up. I have quite enough roving don't you think?
I also got this yarn from another ravelry transaction. STR lightweight in Apple Vallely Rd.
Man I really love good mail days...
My last bit of news is something exciting. For me at least. I bought a wheel! I know I know I have one, but as good as I've got at spinning on it, it's helped me realize all the little things that are annoying and that make me want a new one. So I've posted it on craigslist and hopefully I'll be able to get rid of it.
Here's a link if you wanna check it out. My wheel is slightly famous! And no that's not why I bought it, just a little perk. See here, the one on the home page? That's mine.Oh yes, what kind of wheel is it you say?
It's a Majacraft Little Gem, a tiny little wheel that's easy to take with you, which is one of the things I wanted in a wheel. It's double treadle, also something I wanted. The bobbins are bigger too! I know I wanted a Rose and I'm sure I'll get one, but for now this one actually seems more fitting. Plus when I get the Rose, I'll be able to share bobbins and won't have to buy all separate stuff. All in all, she's selling it for a deal too good to pass up, and this was the second wheel I wanted to buy. So I'm just getting it first instead. When we have more money and space I will get my Rose.
I've also promised hubby that in getting the wheel that I will not buy yarn or roving for six months. I'm gonna put a counter on my page lol. The only yarn and roving I can buy is the stuff to dye for etsy, when I get that going. So hard to find the time to dye! Anyway, it's a good thing I've stocked up the last month or two. I've got enough in my stash to keep me occupied.
Ok so besides the few random things in the mail for me already, I am not buying yarn! Or roving!
Who wants to send me gifts??? ;)
