Fiber Friday

A girl has to have fiber in her diet! So I followed my mother's advice, related to cooking- when you have the best ingredients- your dish is half done. Here are some excellent ingredients. As a matter of fact, they are so excellent- I am afraid to ruin them. I need to get some more practice fiber. Crown Mountain and Hello Yarn.

Nah, you can't ruin it... You can perhaps end up with something different from what you first imagined, but the only way to bring your vision and your spinning into coexistence is to practice - and practicing on bad fiber will only yield bad yarn...
Do you need any more justifications? As my huband is fond of saying, "I'm sure that in a crazy urge to turn a profit, they made more than one of those..."
Go spin it up! Can't wait to see!

Thanks for the fiber eye candy. I can't even afford to go anywhere near those sites. Their fiber is truly addictive.

Those fibers sure look interesting! I'm curious to see how they spin up.

Cathy said...

Loribird is right - they make more and you will become a better spinner using better fiber.

Oops my cordless keyboard needs a new battery and keeps cutting out.

They all look wonderful I look forward to seeing them spun and then knit.
