And the Winners are...............

Helen W and Angela J!!! 
Congratulations ladies!!! 
I have contacted you individually via email and am waiting for address information to be able to send you your prizes.



I have been spinning with the Malabrigo NUBE roving myself and I have to say I really enjoy the color that is coming from it and spinning with it. Drafting it in the places that are colored pretty dark is a bit difficult but I'm new to spinning and that might be normal. I like to draft the roving well before sitting down at the wheel. I have not finished the 4oz roving to actually ply it to make a yarn so that I will leave for another post with pretty photos but I have finished more than half of it and on the wheel it goes pretty quickly. Spinning almost 2 oz in an evening. I think pre drafting it is what takes up most of my time. 

I am so sorry for the delay. I meant to announce the winners last week. I meant to blog about all kinds of things last week but grief has got the better of me. My days roll by one after the other and so fast. I'm sort of lost through the day. Also with that said I have been busy. My oldest is starting kindergarten tomorrow and I had a job interview yesterday. So with getting school uniforms and having to make some purchases for myself to be updated for the interview I have been a little busy.

What have you been up to? Please distract me with your comments.

  1. I'm so excited that I won! Thank you so much. I am so sorry about your mother. My husband lost his mother 18 months ago and it's still painful (I had known her for 35 years). The days get easier, and I will be thinking about you.

  2. I saw some of this roving in my LYS just yesterday! I haven't started spinning yet, but I keep thinking about it. I really need just one more hobby, don't I? I don't know what drafting is, but I guess since you haven't ply-ed it yet, that isn't the finished yarn in the photo above - can't wait to see the final product.

    1. That is what I thought before I started spinning. But I started cheap. I bought the cheap spindle from KnitPicks and some natural roving and started that way. Now I'm borrowing a wheel because I can't afford to buy one at the moment.
