Picked up a 1/2 case of 1/2 gallon Ball jars the other day in an attempt to organize my craft crap a bit. This is what I ended up with:
one jar each of ROYGBIV yarn scraps and other dribs and drabs that can be carded in (when I get a drum carder - soon!) with fiber to make happy batts for spinning, a la those used by all the wonderful artyarn spinners out there. Got the jar idea from Yarnpunk. Now all I've gotta do is organize the room they go in...
Finally got in quick enough to score a round of roving from Michelle at Fun with Yarn before it was all sold out. This 4oz. bump of baby alpaca called 'Slither' is gonna be mine, all mine!
I haven't spun alpaca yet, and am excited to try a new fiber. Her stuff is gorgeous; check it out if you are in the market for some new handspun or fiber.
Picked up this scale a few weeks ago so I can weigh my handspun. Here it is with the bowl full of brown wool ready for the wheel. It'll come in handy tomorrow when I weigh out the goodies I'm sending
out for the Buggin'-Out Fiber Swap. I'll take pics of my contribution tomorrow.
Off to prepare for tonight's Purl 'n Hurl. Ta!
