I went a little batty...

Yep, I sure did. I went a little batty & I'm soooo glad that I did! Just look at these gorgeous batts that I received from Blue Mountain Handcrafts yesterday!
I got my Flower Fairy Spin-A-Long package. Narcissus. It's HUGE & it's beautiful! If you spin you should check the SAL out, Beth has some gorgeous batts listed. I promise that you won't be disappointed. :)
And since I didn't need my own marker shipped back to me, Katie made me a purple flower goblin, isn't he adorable?!

I also picked up one of her Pinks Flower Fairy Batts, I couldn't resist!
I also received my last shippment of the Random Beauty Batt Club. LOVE the batt, & check out the great buttons she included. As well as a notebook & a good sized fiber sample. I'm sad though, I'll miss getting these lovely batts every month.

I totally forgot to post my latest yarns. I finally finished up my beaded yarn. I started this on my visit to Chan's last fall. I ran out of beads mid-way through & had to get more, it ended up sitting on the bobbin for a while. I like how it turned out though. I ended up with 200 yards of worsted weight yarn.
Next up, my first "art" yarn. I'm not much on art yarn, it's pretty but I wouldn't know what to do with most of it other than look at it. But I decided that one of my Random Beauty batts deserved some fancy spinning. Actually this is a pretty normal thick/thin yarn, it just has about 10 or 12 silk flowers plied in there. Turned out pretty I think. It'll make a nice scarf or cowl. I ended up with 240 yards of heavy worsted weight, super soft yarn.

Hopefully I'll have time tomorrow or this weekend to start on one of those new batts! And maybe one of these days I'll have some actual knitting to show you. :)

Like you, I'm not sure what to do with those art batt/skeins. But they sure are purdy:).
