~Yesterday was one of those “three appointments” and lots-of-chores days. I figure it’s better to get all of the odds-and-ends over with in one day. On returning home around 4:15 pm, I pulled a “we-tried-to-deliver-a-package-but-where-the-heck-were-you” card from the mailbox. The date for picking up the package was listed as July 7 after 9 am. Hah, hah. Little did the PO know that after 30+ years at the same address, I know our carrier is usually back at the PO by 3:30 – 4:00 pm. Off we went to the PO where I picked up my package from Woolgatherings. Months ago, one of my blogger friends recommended Woolgatherings 24 Breed Fiber Sampler. Quickly undoing the package I was treated to this eye candy. 2013 is the year I’m trying to spin a wide variety of fiber so the sample pack is perfect. The BFL red-orange fiber is for a scarf, I actually meant to purchase 2 enough to make a shawl. The Superwash BFL is in Charger-looking colors, blue and yellow, to make something for the newest grandson. His parents are uber Charger fans.
24 Breed Fiber Sampler, 1 oz samples:
- Blue Faced Leicester
- Brown Manx Loaghtan
- Dorset Horn
My fingers are itching to spin. My fiber notebook is ready to go. What’s the hold up? The darn tendonitis in my left elbow from that stupid spinning ergonomics mistake I made a month ago. One of the chores yesterday was to purchase one of those bands that wraps around the arm below the elbow. Hopefully it will work so I can get back to spinning. Mariah is calling to me.
