Here is some of the yarn for the meatheads. I've got breathing problems I never knew about. My swift is literally bending under the weight of these things. And I am about 2/3 of the way finished with making and mailing kits. This is very good. They take a long time, and my little dream sweatshop never materialized yesterday because my 2 volunteers had to leave early. I stayed up until 2 am, astonishing and impressing the hell out of myself since I'm getting too old for that kind of thing.
I was surprised the yarn is so spun, since it is called 1/1 roving by Webs, and it looks fuzzier in their small picture. I really like it. It seems like it would be (will be) a good yarn for "My First Dyeing"-type experiments. It's actually a delightful little bulky yarn that is identical to the noodles in Campbell's Chicken Noodle soup. As I'm winding I keep thinking "mmmmm... noodles...."
Here is a close-up of the yarn, modeled by my new measuring tape - a gift from the talented and generous Emily! This is so cool. I think she made this, which impresses me even more than my staying up til 2 am winding yarn balls.
I really needed a tape measure, and I think it's pretty funny because I call my dog "Sheepy Butt" all the time. (She's the one on the left).
