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!
