The linkiest post yet

In five days, this little beauty will be in my hands.

Oh how I love a good tax return!
In preparation, I've ordered a sampling of every raw fleece that the Spinning Loft has for sale on their site that I don't all ready have. Slowly but surely I'm building my fleece library.
I'm nearly as excited about Deborah Robson's new book 'The Fleece and Fiber Sourcebook: More Than 200 Fibers, from Animal to Spun Yarn' that I've had on pre-order since January. I don't think I can wait until it comes out before I spin all this new fiber though. I'll just have to learn from my mistakes once I read it.
Until then I'll be counting down the days until my wheel arrives.

Cha Cha ChaCha Changes...queue Bowie

When I bought a bunch of
these, in different jewel tones, I had plans for a felting project.
Instead, those, became
colorful rug yarn to use as accent with the silvery coopworth.
