Mmmmm. Fibery goodness.

Or Stitches West, Part Deux.

I also got some gorgeous fiber at Stitches West, since I am now a confirmed fiber-holic. First up, from Karen at the Royale Hare, we have some amazingly soft (and green) superwash BFL. Just look at that color!

This is going to be a hat for my mail carrier, whose spinning wheel I have. She was so sweet; she loaned me her wheel indefinitely because she's not using it, but doesn't want to sell it to me because she'd never buy another! She likes green, too. :) I couldn't resist starting to spin it.

It is sooooooo soft.

Karen doesn't have fiber on her site yet, but I think we're going to work on it over the summer.

Next up, is some delectable merino/tencel fiber from Tactile. Yummmmm. It's naturally dyed and I cannot wait to spin this stuff! It is a lovely light springy chartreusey golden green.

And last but definitely not least, is some BFL from Lisa Souza. These are two different colorways, but I loved the way the colors coordinate. I think I may ply them together.

And yes, there is something of a greenish theme here, why do you ask? :)

I love all of the green-especially the BFL. I can't believe how you got the wheel. What a great story, and yes, it's definitely worth a hat made with homespun yarn.

I was wondering where I can get the pattern for the blue stole? It's beautiful & I wasn't at Stitches West.

Love your fiber!

Ooh, pretty. Another Evergreen shawl from "Fiber Gathering," after the hat?

Please let us know how the Lisa Souza spins up. I'm thinking of buying some of her fiber but haven't read/heard any reviews. I'm guessing it will be wonderful but some details would be nice. Congratulations on your latest fiber acquisitions.
