The Payoff

This time last week, I was already soaked to the bone, and had just started exploring NHSW with Cheryl. I had a moderate budget, and like many there, brought the cash I could spend and when it was gone it was gone. I had some goals - 1. Do not purchase another fleece. 2. Get some non-wool fiber to spin and 3. Get a teeny niddy-noddy. Despite having visited the fleece barn first (danger! danger) I managed to achieve all three of my goals. I am very pleased with what I came home with:Clockwise starting with big white bag `o fiber: Cormo/Silk from Foxfire, Silk/Cashmere also from Foxfire (I have urges to stuff this in my bra it is so soft), a mini Ashford Niddy Noddy, 2 silk hankies from The Spinners Hill Shop, a ball of Trekking which I'm pretty sure came from The Elegant Ewe, 2 hanks of merino 2-ply from Nick's Meadow Farm, a neon-blue silk cap and red Tussah silk top from The Spinning Studio, and finally, a 3 oz bump of "black magic" polwarth/mohair/silk from The Spinning Bunny. I am a happy girl. Now I just need more spinning time!

I'm so excited you got that black magic. I love nancy's stuff, and that sweater sha had in the demo building was unreal. Of course, that one took 13 oz.
