Frustration and some yarn

I have been trying to get my newsletter out but alas the computer gods are not smiling on me. First I had   formatting problems so I gave it up for another day. Now today the program keep crashing when I try to edit it. It looks like the newsletter won't be out till next week now. Grrr.

Remember I showed the carding machine I was using. Well its gone back to it home in Utah but while it was here I carded 160 batts.  This is what my kitchen table looks like.

I just love looking at all the colors. These are all wool batts rolled into balls. Some of them are natural shades and the rest of them I dyed myself.

I also blended some silks and mohair with some of the wool.  I can't wait to make some of the purples into some gorgeous yarn.

These are some of the silk blended batts, don't the colors just look luscious.

and here are some of the yarns I have spun so far.
