Speaking of Christmas, I also got to use my new
Tinkertoy Fiddlestix set as a yarn swift:
I'm not certain I like the vertical orientation yet, but that's the beauty of the set -- I can just reconfigure it into a horizontal swift if I want. Hooray for flexible tools!
Finally, it may be winter, but the alpacas are nesting already.
These are actually wee little nests of alpaca roving that I carded with my fancy dog brushes and dizzed with that big button up there. I bought the alpaca fiber from The Fuchsia Fleece and I'm very happy with it -- it cards up well even on my ~80 TPI brushes. The little nests spin up nicely -- who knew a button could make so much difference?
