Spinning SP 2 is here!

And I cant get over my very own Fibergodmother that I've received! She's Spinningforajastoy on the Knittyboards. And Wow! Spinning SP just started last week Monday and I came home tonite to find package #2 waiting for me!

Firstly,, the first package! It arrived last Thursday. In it was a note (that I forgot to take a pic of)

and this,,



Cashmere Top! It is so soft,, I've been petting it on a daily basis!

Next is this,,



Bamboo Top! The color came out much brighter due to the flash,,,but this too is soooo incredibly soft and silky!

Next up.



Beautiful white Mulberry Silk!

And last but not least,,



Mohair! Straight and unadulterated!

Hows all this for Fiber Crack. Dumbfounded I tell ya! I am simply dumbfounded!


Then tonight. My son let me know when I spoke to him earlier in the day that a package arrived for me. I had placed an order for something but that wasnt coming till the end of this week so I was puzzled. Flew home as fast as I could, thru the rain,, with standing still in 40 minutes worth of traffic,,, and upon arriving home and after racing to the bathroom (a girl has to do what a girl has to do you know!)I checked my package out.



North Carolina? Completely befuddled. My SP had stated that she sent out another little package but I had no idea I would get anything this quick!

I tore into it, thank heavens for strategically placed exacto knives! This is what was inside!


and the closeup!


Isnt it beautiful! Black Lipped Mother of Pearl! And it sure as hell beats the spice jar top and an old CD to use as a Diz. I think I have to try making the DIY Hackle this weekend to really put this gorgeous Diz to the test!

Thank you Spinningforajastoy! After this weekend alone, with my hormonally volatile son turning 15 years old Sunday, and putting me thru a weekend of hell, you've just knocked me on my butt with this surprise.

Its been a rough past week thats for sure. Too much to get into now. I am just exhausted! Friday was the lead in tho. Nothing like being on your bus in traffic trying to negotiate and it taking over an 1.5 hours to move 6 blocks! But it had its own little story, for the good in it. That'll be the next post.

So I leave now with showing off my Spinning SP goodies, and my finally washed and skeined yarn that I spun up and showed off on the noddy in my last post. My 470 yards of goodness!

Its sooo pretty!

Skeined up and ready to go!


A better closeup!
