from new mexico to new foundland


yesterday my fleece arrived from martie in new mexico. martie's shop is taossunflowertoo. we've been "online" friends for about a year now. a few months ago we decided to do a big trade - 2 of my handknit shawls for the equivalent value in roving. and here it is! as warm and sunny and inspiring as i'd hoped. just when i need inspiration - with still too much snow outside and still too cold and with a big order of yarn to spin. all set now (as she rubs her hands together). i immediately spun up "spring grass" - martie's fleece and mohair fibre locks combined with a little white merino, some snippets of cut up novelty yarn and some luscious soysilk.
