Fiber Fairy

Yup, you read that right.  In addition to the binky fairy, and the yarn fairy, I also have a fiber fairy.

I signed up for Hush Hush Handspun Hootinany awhile back.  I’ve been really looking forward to this swap, and it has been all that I expected!

Today, out of the blue and such a surprise, I received my package!  It couldn’t have come at a better time, it has been enormously busy this week and getting that package absolutely made my morning!

Maiziemama was my secret pal, and she did spoil me!  I got a lovely 5 oz. skein of ramboullet, silk, and anjelina blend.   At 380 yards, I am really hoping to make it into a montego bay scarf.  I really want to show off the lovelyness of the handspun.  She also sent a WPI gauge (wraps per inch for the uninitiated).  I’ve wanted one for a long time but hadn’t gotten around to picking one up!

Isn’t it gorgeous?!?!

She send some red roibus chai tea as well, but I can’t show you that, I drank it at work.  Hey!  I said it was a stressful day!

And then she sent 4oz batts, merino, sea cell, and angelina blend.  Love it!  I have never worked with batts, or sea cell, or angelina.  It is all I can do to not stop all I am doing and give them a try right now!

I am so sad about the pictures.  I got the package at work and couldn’t wait to get home, take them outside and take beautiful photographs, but by the time I got home it was storming.  So I took them outside anyhow, but had to use the flash.  Can you see the green in there?  I love it!  Batts are deceiving, there are more colors in there than expected.  A little bit of mystery!

Thank you so much Maiziemama, I appreciate how thoughtfully you put my package together.

Also, thank you to Bockstarckknits for putting together such an awesome swap, I can imagine it is a lot of hard work and stress for the coordinator.  You are doing a wonderful job!
