One of the best Christmas gifts ever!

I was very happy with the yarn that I made from some beautiful roving purchased at out Spin-In last spring.

When I was looking at the web site for Sunset Fibers in Olympia WA, I noticed that they had a Roving of the Month Club. Now doesn't that sound like fun?

For $150 a year (or you can purchase one month up to 12- there are incremental savings the more months that you purchase) you get 4 ounces of either their Corriedale or Superwashed Merino roving. My mind immediately thought about Christmas and three sisters who always ask me "What do you want for Christmas?"

I decided this year what I REALLY wanted was the "Roving of the Month Club" My sisters were nice enough to contribute $150 and I decided to put in $150 of my own plus a nominal amount for shipping (after all, what can you crochet with 4 ounces of yarn - not much...) so I will get 8 ounces of roving each month - and the above picture was "Miss January" - is that not cool or what!?!? Now I can add to my stash with out even having to go out of the house!

So if you know that hard to buy for spinner (or are one yourself) - give the gals at Sunset Fibers a try - I don't think you'll be disappointed!

P.S. I've already gotten the February roving - it is beautiful tulip colors - pink, yellow & green - 8 ounces of soft fluffy Corriedale!

Good for you for getting exactly what you want! And you still get surprised every month; how fun is that? Those colors are PERFECT for January; post a photo of your February colors, too!
