My birthday present came!

The Boy had wanted to get me some new work gloves for a birthday present, but he and The Reluctant Farmer could not find any (I wear fingerless carpetners' gloves, in a size small ... they're hard to come by). He asked me for suggestions of a good alternative, and so I sent him to etsy.com to find some pretty rovings. It's so nice to have dyed commercially prepared rovings sometimes for a treat.

So ... these arrived today:

One is Merino, one is Ramboulliet. I've spun a little bit of Merino before, and it was buttery soft, and I've heard nice things about Ramboulliet. They look like fun!

I'll let you know what they turn into.
