Attention all Spin Along members! We are doing a Virtual Spin-in beginning May 18, 2012 at 12 noon your local time until May 20, 2012 12 midnight your local time.
During this Spin-in, we are going to have a spinning swap. It is not required to participate in the swap in order to participate in the Spin-in. If you wish to participate in the swap, please send me a Personal Message with your mailing address. DO NOT POST ANY PERSONAL INFORMATION HERE. KP IS VERY GOOD ABOUT KEEPING OUR PRIVATE INFORMATION PRIVATE. Every time we have a new member I have sent you a friend request. So if you have accepted my friend invitation, you can PM me with no problems. If you haven't accepted my friend invitation, just go to your friends list in the upper right hand side of the page and then click on Requests. Just accept my request and we should be good to go to send PMs to each other. IF YOU WANT TO PARTICIPATE IN THE SWAY, WHOEVER YOU ARE MATCHED WITH WILL BE GIVEN YOUR MAILING ADDRESS. The swap will be for one skein of your handspun yarn. It does not have to be the yarn you spin during the Spin-in. And if you wish to send your swap partner anything else, that is up to you but not necessary. Please note that any international members are welcome to participate so there could be international shipping charges which you could incur. IF YOU WANT TO PARTICIPATE IN THE SWAP, PLEASE SEND ME A PM BY MAY 12th SO I CAN MATCH PEOPLE UP FOR THE SWAP. Everyone who participates name will go into a hat. I will make a list of those participating, listing people as they send me a PM. I will draw names and list them to those participating in the order you notified me. This way it maybe that you have to send a skein of your homespun from someone different you receive a skein from. That way, I don't have to worry about an odd number of people participating.
I suggest if you participate in the Spin-in, let us know what you plan to spin and on what kind of wheel or spindle, how much you plan to spin, any new technique or new fiber you plan to use. This is not a contest and there will be no prizes. This is just a way to encourage you to keep a record for yourself.
Any questions? Post them here. Remember, the only stupid question is the one not asked. And remember, this is for fun and to help you improve your spinning skills. You set your own goals and no harm if you don't meet your own goals.
Well, I think I have every thing together. We have sent it to the audit representative and just have to wait to hear what he thinks. Then to wait to hear from the auditor what the damage will be. Although it was a surprise, at least it got us to get everything together.
I least you were able to pull everything together and get it to them in time. Nothing like a surprise like this one.
Yes, we had mentioned to the audit representative that we were going out of town and he thought there would be no problem. Oh, well, he now has the documents and he is reviewing them. We will probably talk to him on Thursday or Friday.
So the really hard part is finished... that IS good.
Well, I may still have to come up with more information, but at least the basics is done.
Glad it got there and sorry for the wait. Yes, I did make the soap, it's unscented goatsmilk soap.
It looks great. It is so sweet looking, I almost don't want to ruin it by using it. I can't wait to get to spin the fibers. I haven't tried Romney and Rambouillet so it wil be nice to give it a spin. But first I have to prove all my deductions to Uncle Sam. So fibery goodness is on hold for a bit.
Wow! All of it is so beau-tee-full!!
Cheryl (and Julie). that handspun is gorgeoous! And the rest of your swap package is lovely as well...combed Rambouillet, Angora...squeeeeeeee!
I can't wait to get my hands on it!
