So yummyrific Phat Fiber is also having a contest where they are giving away one batt of this fiber below and second place prize is a bagful of mini skeins. both would be wonderful but im going to keep my fingers crossed for the hyacinth. go here to enter and if you come from my blog let them know please.:-) this is a wonderful prize. i am keeping my fingers crossed on this one and am going into promotional mode lol.

the drop spindle im using is my birthday present. my mom got it for me from Zebisis Designs I love it. It spins like a dream. It is really lightweight which I really like because I have carpal tunnel and if I was using a heavier spindle my hands and wrists would hurt so bad. so there you go another reason to by Zebisis lightweight spindles. they rock and they are so nice to use an beautiful as well. well im out of here for now.
