Edit: OMG... I totally forgot to flash my fiber stash earlier today.. why did I think I had till the 15th? Sorry.. the pics are a bit cheezy.. but here's my fiber stash.
from top left: 2 oz Angora (it had to stay in the bag, the cats were way too interested), 8 oz handdyed blue wool. Second row: 8 oz Corriedale, unknown purple stuff that I'm assuming is wool, 4 oz brown/red alpaca. Squished in the middle.. 2 oz 70/30 merino/tussah blend in two different colours with 4 oz of black alpaca in the middle (I'm voting for suri alpaca.. it's much different than any other alpaca I've seen) Bottom row: 8oz Romney, 4oz merino and ? amount of Grafton's Fibers handdye. All of it is sitting on the remainder of the three fleeces a friend obtained for me at the start of the summer.
A few more pics.. closeups taken prior to my crazy and hectic week..
Close up of the multi-wool handpaint
I love this one... it reminds me of a meandering stream.. I can't wait to see how it spins up!
Okay.. this one isn't in my stash.. but I wanted the sheep it was attached to.. I thought I'd throw it in for fun. (for those who know what I look like.. this sheep and I share the same hair type)
A close up of the Grafton Fibers batt.. didn't quite catch the purple..
First.. let me congratulate Ikkinlala. Her name of Oliver won the Name my Wheel Contest.
I got two packages this week while I wasn't at home...
First one from my CASP Pinched Penny. First you see what I did when I opened the package.. very creative! Next picture is of the box itself once I took off the first layer of paper. Inside were spiders, pencils, candy, a finger puppet and a skein of Galway that I'm hiding till Friday.. since I think it will be my yarn pr0n. I will say I've never seen a skein of Galway that isn't a solid colour.
Second Package, from Queen Cat on Caffiene, my Spooky SP. There's going to be a lot of felting in my future. She sent a pattern for a pumpkin treat bag.. though since it's now past Halloween.. the yarn may become something else.. Two skeins of solid green and one handpaint of Knit Picks Bulky WotA (these might need to become slippers.... I have to think on this). Nerds (yummy), chocolate (yummier), a cute kitty card deck (okay, it's a bit creepy), a witches hat votive holder and some sticky notes.
Bonus package.. a swap from England, compliments of LittleMy. Complete with some interesting chocolate... hmm... must not eat all the candy in one day.
