...he would totally droll over this doughnut of fiber I just received:


My Ashland Bay order came today! I just got done taking photographs of most of it for the store, and I *hope* to have them up for sale by Monday.



Here's the first batch of awesome batts from my most recent round of Ravelry swapping. Luckily I'll have these to spin while I'm waiting for my giant roving order to come in, because I spun myself out of merino today.


Most of the recently blogged-about yarns are up for sale in the store now. Check 'em out:

I want candy


Here's a candy striped cable-esque yarn that I am much more happy with. It's got the pizzazz the other one lacked. I want to eat it. Tomorrow I'm going to spin a companion skein to go with it, since this one only gave me about 7 yards.

News you can use: as soon as this year's tax refund arrives, I'm going to place a big roving order with Ashland Bay, so I'll have lots of high-quality, un-dyed spinning fibers in the store "soon", in addition to the batts & locks currently for sale. (I use the word "soon" loosely because I have no idea how long it will take the IRS to ship me my money, or A.B. to ship me my order.)



This was my first attempt making a "cabled yarn", basically taking two 2-ply yarns and plying them together. I'm not very impressed with it, but I think that's mostly because I'm tired of working with this colorway. It's a bit on the stiff side; I think I may have gone overboard with the twist.
