lucky


Oh, how I love good mail! This amazing pack of cards was printed by Kaija of Paperiaarre, and I actually won them in a giveaway she had on her blog. I am so happy that I won, because I am typically not a very lucky person! I really love her work...I have had my eye on this journal of hers on etsy for months now, and wish that I could justify the expense. I also love her bird-in-a-circle motif and was so happy that the tag she attached to the cards I won had this image on it. Imagine a coptic-bound journal with the bird-in-circle motif printed on front...hmmm...that would be amazing. Maybe someday!


I guess this mail is lucky too, but I had to pay for this bit of luck! Not quite as good as winning something...but Pigeonroof Studios' rovings are so hard to come by that it still feels lucky when I manage to get my hands on them. These two are 80% merino, 20% tussah silk...the inner braid is colorway "bitter orange," and the outer braid is colorway "bark." I love how the two different colorways coordinate with each other, and I can't wait to spin them! I've been doing a lot of spinning lately, so I'll be posting some of my handspun yarn soon...

Wow! So the winning wasn't a scam? How pretty...
Also pretty is that bitter orange color, very striking, I'll be excited to see something knit with it.

No scams around here :)

I'm so glad to read this after finally getting back to my blog. I'll keep in mind that journal idea of yours. If only I had more time... but a girl has got to eat too!

Those rovings look absolutely lovely, but I'm even more amazed with the yarn you spun out of them. Spinning is a pretty much complete mystery to me!

I agree, the bird in a circle would look great on a journal or something. I was pretty happy to win a set too! :o)

My mother-in-law could spin and I have even seen her spin, but I always thought it was a skill of the past and nver even tried to learn. And now you can see merino wool and silk and other fibers just waiting for spinners! Where did you learn?
