Remember my roving? Course you do, it was like two days ago. Well today it was dry and I got pictures before the daylight ran out. And noooooow, they are in my etsy shop!!! I'm very excited about it. Here are the pictures that I took today as well.

Apple Crisp- 4 ounces of merinoAutumn Roses- 4 ounces of merino
Jack Frost- 4.25 ounces of superwash merino tencel, 50/50 blend.
So that's what I have been doing for the last hour or two. I am anxious to dye again and this time, blend and mix more.

I also mailed out my secret pal's package today. It's the second gift for her, and I hope that she likes it! With that I mailed some kidsilk I'm trading, some roving to melissa for being fabulous ( ;D ) and to my sister the baby sweater, matching hat, and gloves that she commissioned me to make for her. The gloves are the same one in this post. And here are pics of the hat and sweater. They came out sooo cute I didn't want to give them away!
It just came out so darn cute. I know that they will love it. I don't have much else in the way of news. So I'll leave you with that!


Found out about a contest from Melissa's blog. It's being held for those of use who couldn't make it to the infamous Rhinebeck. You are supposed to take a pic of some of your stash, and post it like it's what you got there. I grabbed a few of my favorite yarns that I haven't used yet.

They are:
Top: lotus sock yarn
Middle left to right: shibui sock, handmaiden sea silk, socks that rock lightweight, fleece artist sock, lornas shepherd sock
Bottom: snitches sock

Those rovings look great! I feel your pain! But think of it this way. Christmas is coming up, so you can have everyone buy yarn for you! Love the pic from your stash. I didn't make it to Rhinebeck either, I can only imagine how much I would be toting home with me if I had gone. And..what would my husband have said? :D

I need to learn how to ply and spin darnit! I love the first one, it looks utterly lickable. -=giggle=- Of course you did a fantastic job on every single one though! =)

What a cute set! Your sister is going to love them!

Thanks for the post about the contest! -=runs to look over her stash=-

Hi, I came here via the Randomizer. I wanted to tell you how CUTE that sweater and hat are, especially the sweater. :-)

(I have no idea what a roving is.. that tells you how crafty I am)
