i will DIE of envy if you go to Taos without me. *pouts*

i'm very happy for you, regarding the ribbons. you'll keep it up, eh?

crochet project #1, with the Zesty, is about 75% complete. Storm has already claimed this scarf for her own, sadly for me.

still trying to decide how best to use the blue beaded yarn. i have a bunch of complementary blue cotton yarn to use with it, and i was thinking of a hat/scarf set maybe, or a lightweight poncho maybe. your beaded prettiness will be trim for whatever i make.

I probably wont get to *go* to Taos (it would involve plane tickets and rental cars and hotel rooms), but I'm definitely going to send down a bunch (hopefully like a dozen, which means I have to get cracking) of skeins for the handspun competition. If I win the lotto I'll send you a plane ticket ;)

I'm also thinking of sending some skeins back east for the BigE fair too. Easy enough (tho a bit time consuming) to spin up 2 skeins of each thing instead of only 1 *smile* Unfortunately both evens are during the same time period, but having 2 sets of competition skeins wouldn't be the end of the world.

I'm glad Storm lie the scarf *smile* BTW - did you ever test out those other fibers I sent you for itchiness?

i tested them, yes, and didn't notice anything but a very occasional prickly feeling. i hope that means that they won't bug me. hopehopehope.

Good! The bra test is the most accurate one because that's pretty much as sensitive of skin as you can find on polite portions of one's anatomy *smile*

Just for the record the blue tuft is superfine merino and the brown tuft is alpaca. Usually people's sensitivity has to o with the fineness of the fiber - http://www.alpacas.com/AlpacaLibrary/AlpacaFiberTextile.aspx

So, since I'm taking a 2 day dyeing workshop this weekend you'll now have to tell me what your favorite colors are :)
