The swapping begins

Here is the first of the kool aid dyed handspun yarn...also the first mill end wool I have spun up. It's lightweight, plied, and part of my first swap package.

And there we go...my crafty package of fun: a set of handmade cards, felted soap, cold process citrus soap, a duct tape wallet, two skeins of handspun, and glass beads that I made in Corning...

Lookee here, I finished something!

First, big news to no one but me: my father's scarf is FINALLY finished. And only 4 months late. I used 4 skeins of alpaca and it wound up measuring around 5' long. It's nice and drapey, as can be seen on Nick above.

Next: the cheetos and blue kool-aid yarn is done. It's about 90 yards of nice, soft merino...blue plied with blue/orange/pink.
