I just won some BEAUTIFUL roving on eBay!
I'm so excited to find this beautiful roving! I got it for a great price too!

I'm getting 16 ounces of the green, and 32 ounces of the bayberry.


Here is a link to the farm that sold me the roving:

Oh, wow, that bayberry is GORGEOUS... I want to pet it... or roll in it... or something. The green is pretty too, but I'm a blue person.

Love the blue too. May have to try this stuff

I haven't looked at fiber much since SAFF. Plus, I've suddenly met people willing to *give* me animal fleeces. My uncle will send his sheep and goat fiber and new to the knit group is a lady who owns several llama So I think I'll be having a fun time preparing fleeces soon.

The lady at the farm is SO NICE. She sent me an email when I won the auction, and I replied, telling her how nice the roving is. Then, she replied again telling me more about her farm.

We ended up sending messages back and forth about 6 times!
