Handspinning goodies

by Aimee on January 28, 2008

Awhile back I donated to Spin Out. I did it because it is a good thing to do – as a bonus I won one of the prizes! They got here this weekend!

Funky Carolina Falkland – 4 oz – and colorway Eep Ork! I have been coveting her fiber for awhile and this is my first. I want to spin it RIGHT NOW!! (Forgive my laziness of not taking this out of the package – busy busy day!)

Beth provided this beautiful superwash merino in crap I forgot what the colorway name is and I am again too lazy to go over there!

As you can see I already started spinning that pink goodness on my new Don’t Drop Spindle. This thing is LIGHT! I am so glad I got that Bosworth last week so that I had some idea that I could in fact spin…you can see my progress as I got used to it.

This prize is FANTASTIC and what I would like the Lupus Walk prizes to someday be – bigger, better and more FANTASTIC (if you are wondering, I have almost all of them sent out – I spent something like $25 on shipping last week and need to wait until the next pay check to do the rest – hopefully I can get the rest out in the next go!)

What a beautiful drop spindle! I have to learn to use one! The yarn looks pretty spiffy too.

Oh, man, I saw those spindles at MDS&W. They are gorgeous. I’d be too afraid to use it. I’d end up hanging it up somewhere. :D

Lovely prizes!!!

Congratulations! I finally used all my soak on the hubby weasley sweater. I will definitely be buying some more!!

This is the lady that has
lupus also. It doesn’t seem
fair that you would have to foot
the bill for the postage on the
prizes. I would be glad to help
you out, but I haven’t worked since
l989 and I don’t have a signicant
other. Can’t some of your advertisers help you?

The spindle is lovely. And the fiber is drool. Nice package!
