I forgot a post!

All I can say is that I've been sick & posting these photos that I took this weekend, pre-sickness, has just slipped my mind. Sorry Chan! I really have been scattered the past couple of days, I consider it a minor miracle that I've actually shown up for work the past two days! I'm not really sure how much good I'm doing there anyway, maybe I should have just stayed home....
Anyway... rambling here, excuse me. :)

My wonderful, thoughtful, partner in crime, Chan sent me this beautiful fiber this past weekend. Unfortunately the photo doesn't show the true colors, the one that looks blue is actually another pretty shade of purple! Darn camera! It seems as if we have gone fiber-wild now that we have been turned loose in the world of spinning. And we're having tons of fun with it! :) I've already started spinning the camel color with my spindle.... I was hoping to get more practice before I jump into the purple ones so I can maybe use it for knitting up something wonderful! I lourves me some purple!!

Hopefully I will be feeling better soon so I can try my hand at plying the pink & cream fiber that I've already spun into my very first singles, yeah!

Thanks to all of my spinner friends & my learning also spinner friends for encouraging me to give this a try, I'm really enjoying myself with it. Even if I am having a hard time making myself pay for the previously bought laptop vs. buying a new spinning wheel! LOL
And thanks again Chan for the beautiful fiber, you're the best! :)

Gorgeous colors! Chan rocks! Can't wait to see what you make...and I'm getting a little feeling that I might want to learn to spin. Oh dear.
