Into the Whirled Fiber Club

Wahooo!!!!  My Into the Whirled Fiber has arrived!  If you follow me on Facebook, you may remember back in December when I was debating joining this fiber of the month club.  I requested to join the club on 12/20/2012, shortly after I received my spinning wheel for my 29th birthday.  I chose this club because in addition to fantastic colorways, there is a different kind of fiber used each month.  For a novice spinner like myself, this is PERFECT since it allows me to try out different types of fiber.  It took almost a year for me to get off of the waiting list.  I heard that I was off a day before my 30th birthday. 

First bag of fiber arrived 1/22/14

Why did I hesitate to join the club? Since I've had Lucky, there has been less time for spinning.  I have other fiber that I have not yet spun in my ever growing stash and I don't want to waste money.  However, I realized that this would make me happy and that I should try it out for at least a few months. 

Second bag of fiber arrived 2/24/14
I made a promise to myself that if I didn't keep up with the arriving fiber then I would cancel the fiber club... and here I am with two months worth not yet spun.  I got behind with the spinning because I had some very important deadlines to hit in February.  I wanted to complete a hat for Lucky's Fairy Godmother and a Woobie for Indy's Dog Godparents baby due VERY SOON!    However, now that I don't have any impending deadlines on the horizon I can start spinning again.  What to spin, oh what to spin?   Stay tuned to find out, those will be their own posts, but I had to share the exciting colorways with you right away. 

Each month comes with some fiber tags, to help me keep track of the yarn that I spin.  Awesome!
