Fiber Love!

So I've been promising you a spinning post for awhile....and while spinning has been slow lately (as is indicated by the many finished objects you've been seeing) I did score some awesome fiber over Christmas that you must see!

First by SIL (and brother, but we know my SIL is really the one to score these lovelies for me!)
This is 8 oz of undyed Corredaile (sp?)!   I'm enjoying dreaming about what this should be!

and 8 + oz of Merino in lovely pink!  (Knox wanted in on the fun...I think she heard a bird outside too)  Oh to live where fiber was so easily accessible....oh no then my fiber stash would be even worse!

And 8 oz of merino in blue that I bought at the Yarn Barn!

And last, but definitely not least was what Santa left in my stocking!!!!  (boy I must have been good this year...thanks Mom!)  50/50 Bamboo/Merino blend by Creatively Dyed!  I love looking at this and dreaming of the possibilities!
I am so eager to spin...but am feeling the need to make lots of warm socks right now....the spinning time will come!  

On the math front:  It was an awesome week last week.  My work has been verified by my advisor and I was right...WOOHOO!  so now I get to figure out what follows from what I figured out! (I could give you details, but I don't think you really want them) :)

Oh, these are sure pretty, Leah, especially the pink one. Can't wait to see them spun. Your kitty is so cute and reminds me of of one of mine from long ago, Eloise. Is she a calico or a torti? Good job on the math front...not sure we'd understand the details either!

Leah, these look fantastic!!!!

Where do you get your rovings? I'm still playing with the idea of getting a wheel. It's not like I have enough yarn, knitting, or stuff to keep me busy for a lifetime or anything!!!

It's good to build up a stash of fiber. It's all lovely.

Sounds like you're on the brink of an exciting discovery in math. Good luck with it.

I can honeslty say the spinning bug has NOT bitten me yet, thank God. But I love watching what comes out of these rovings. Have fun.

Love the corredale. I don't know how to spell it and I'm too tired to check. :) I am so excitd that the math is working. I'm pretty sure my head would explode if you told me but that's why God gave you this gift! To figure awesome stuff out.

Wowzers - you are a lucky girl!

YAY for a productive (and accurate) math week!! Loved your SIL comment. :) Can't wait to see what you do with all your Christmas fiber! There was the cutest dog in the fiber store when we picked out your present. Practically had to drag your brother out of Village Wools!
