Yesterday I mentioned mailing some parcels while I was down in the land of cheap postage rates. One of the packages I mailed was to my blog friend Anett. I am not going to show you what was in the parcel because I don't want to ruin the surprise, but I can show you what she sent me last month.
Isn't it beautiful? Anett is a very talented hand dyer from Hungary. This is 100% merino, and should spin up into some lovely yarn. If you are a spinner interested in adding some great fibre to your stash, there is a link to her online shop on the side bar of Anett's blog, The Crafty Side of Life. I haven't done any spinning since I got Fergus, but I think he is almost civilized enough now for me to bring my wheel out again. Hopefully he is past the stage he was in a couple months ago when he decided to use the treadle on my wheel as a chew toy. It now looks a bit like The Wheel of Misfortune.
Here is today's movie suggestion. Do not go to a movie about things going wrong on an airplane if you are afraid of flying. It turns out this is a very bad idea. I know this because my mom and I went to the movie Flight last Sunday. Without giving away the plot I think it is safe to say things go wrong on the plane. Very wrong. I did mention to my mom before we went that I wasn't sure it was a good pick for me. She told me I could just cover my eyes. It didn't work.
