Great Mail Day!

Lookie at the goodies that I got in the mail today from Beth at Blue Mountain Handcrafts!

This pretty superwash roving in the Concert T-Shirt colorway...
The most beautiful, sparkly batts that I've ever seen! These are called The Pharoh's Main Squeeze, Beth has a way with naming her fibers. he he
I can't wait to get these on the wheel, I plan on spinning them into singles & plying with a gold thread. That's the plan anyway. :)

And I have a small finished project to show. This cute little soap bag was knit with some yummy cotton by Jabo, that I got from A Row of Purls Too. I must have more of this yarn!! The pattern is the Pluie Soapholder, free on the Berroco website.

Another goodie that I got in the mail to come, just have to get some good photos of it.  Hope everyone is having a good week!

I came across your blog in search for blogs to read :) and I wanted to say that the roving is so pretty and will probably look awesome when it's spun. I'm new to spinning but I keep trying, lol. I just love the blue sparkly yarn too, sooo pretty. I am more of a crocheter, but know the basics of knitting as well. Right now I've been getting hooked to swapbot. You'll have to check it out, if you like swaps for any knitted item. Anyhoo, love you blog :)

Love, love, love. But you already knew that, thanks to Ravelry.

I think I'm going to spin this evening when I get home. Something pink, for Sherrie. AH! That bag of PANK/blue/toxic green... that's practically tie-dyed, right?
