I got in touch with Amanda from LoneStarArts who I "know" through twopeasinabucket and ravelry. I wanted to see if she could dye some BFL for me, and lucky for me, she happened to have 8 oz hanging around ready to dye. (It was a sign, I swear...I HAD to buy it right?)
after looking through her colors, I chose 'Carnival'. She had it dyed and mailed to me within a week I think, it was fast and I was thrilled. ...and it was soft and squishy, and it smelled good. (Yup, I smelled it. Part habit, and part 'I've received some smoky things in the mail before'. This just smelled fresh and clean. Awesome)
I spun most of this on 'my' spindle. ('my' as in 'its in my possession at the moment', it is not MINE)
nothing like spun singles on toilet paper rolls *sigh*
that's a nickel buried in there, to give you some size reference. Isn't it purty?
---------------Right about here...is where I ordered my spinning wheel---------------
More of that later...
