The spinning fixation is starting to get very real around here. I joined two Fiber Clubs so I may be assured of a regular dose of fuel for the wheel and spindle. The first shipment arrived yesterday. The second club comes all the way from Australia so it may take a couple of weeks.
All week long I raced home to see if the box arrived. When it got here, I was so thrilled I could barely open the box, my hands were moving too fast. Oh! What a squeal of delight to see this inside! I can't tell you how completely giddy I was, wish you were here to see it.
This fiber is Corriedale Wool Top, hand dyed by Adrian of Hello Yarn. It's called Thrive. And these colors are just beyond wonderful. They are vibrant, rich, explosive, joyous. Which is how I feel when I look at it.
I can't wait to get this stuff spun up. And being a beginner, this fiber is pure motivation to become better. Stay tuned, I promise to show you the results.
