Happy Friday!

Well, I had a post all ready to go and my browser took a dive, hmph. Ah well. Second time’s the charm, I guess!

Still working hard on my moebius thing, so I’ll take this opportunity to thank those wonderful folks who have already sponsored me for the Revlon Run/Walk. Many thanks to Lu, Michelle and Kathy! I’m up to $40 now which is very exciting 🙂

I’m now going to whet your appetites with some lovely fiber porn, hoping to entice even more of you to contribute. As I said, the winners of this raffle will get to pick the type of prize they want (spinning, knitting, books, sweet treats) – or take the ‘surprise me’ option.

Today I’m going to talk about the spinning option! When I was at Stitches West I got some great roving and a spindle, but haven’t had time to work on my spinning. It seems a shame that this fabulous roving isn’t being fondled regularly by anyone, so I’ll be happy to pass it along to a lucky winner.

The Spinning Prize will include:

(1) nice wooden drop spindle and (1) brochure with spinning instructions

(1) hank of merino/tencel roving from Deep Color. I can’t even begin to describe how incredibly yummy this stuff feels and looks. I’ve heard that it spins up just like butter and I can totally believe it. Seriously, look me straight in the eye and tell me these photos don’t start your salivary glands up.

You can pick either of the two colors I have:

or teal…

here’s the money shot with both of them

So come on! Who could possibly resist all that shimmery wool, intertwined together on the floor? Sponsor me and win some yummy roving…

I’ll leave you with some random thoughts for those folks finding me through interesting search engine searches:

For those of you searching on ‘koigu clapotis’ and ‘clapotis fingering’, let me just warn you that many a knitter has run out of steam about 2/3 of the way through when using teeny tiny yarn. On the other hand I’ve seen some incredibly beautiful ones so it’s up to you. I haven’t started mine yet…

Whoever searched on ‘SUSHI +WASHCLOTH -EAT -RICE +CUTE’ I’m pretty certain you didn’t find what you were looking for here. I hope you found your cute sushi washcloths somewhere! I’d like to see those, actually.

‘silk & seagrass drawstring box’ and ‘lantern moon drawstring box’ – yes, I have one of those!

And, strangely, someone found me by searching on ‘grumpy’. I don’t think I’m that grumpy, do you?
