Squooshy Goodness...

I came home to an over-sized envelope sticking out of the mailbox today...


And envelope full of squooshy, hand-spun goodness from Kate at Lazy Kate Creates...


Hand-spun goodness that made we want to first grab my camera and then roll around in the softness...


(I refrained from the later impulse.)

Thanks Kate for hosting your lovely give-away! (Thanks Random Number Generator for picking me.) While I'm trying to decide what each of these little treasures will become, I think I'll just enjoy petting them for a while.

On a different, but related note, I fully blame Kate's blog for sparking my now growing interest in spinning. And then Allison at Alaskan Purl had to go and have a great first experience with drop spindling. You ladies are bad influences. That's all I'm going to say at this point...


peace

Need some Iowa sources for roving??
It's a lot of fun and so satisfying to spin your own! Have fun!
