each month the fibre group on etsy (etsyfast team) participate in a thematic challenge. october was candy. november is "big ticket" item (giving us all an excuse to make a higher priced item to list in our shops). december is about sharing. we will make an item that somehow involves one or more etsyfast members. robyn at weeballyarns will spin some yarn for me to knit up and i will spin some for her to knit. this week i received some exquisite bfl roving from annie at coloressence. i spun it up with some other roving (reds and pinks and purple, added some commercial novelty yarns and some mohair fibre locks and knit up a pair of fingerless gloves called "kissed"). i love how it turned out so last night i spun up the rest and will send it to robyn.
