daily dose of fiber

I was so busy this weekend prepping for my tax meeting on Monday -- I'm sure a lot of you can sympathize! One thing I hate about taxes is that when you're self-employed, you get screwed pretty royally -- I always end up owing the government instead of getting money back, and this year is no different. Luckily, I have a great accountant who is helping me make sure it doesn't happen again next year (or as close as we can get, anyway!)

Because it was such a bummer of a day, I couldn't have been happier to get a little bit of colorful, squishy, fluffy fiber in the mail. I managed by some miracle to score not one, but four bumps of amazing Hello Yarn fiber in the most recent update. I'm excited not just because the fiber is delicious, but also because this is going to be one of my last yarn or fiber purchases for awhile -- I am going on a self-imposed yarn diet so that I can save up money for a few trips this summer, pay off some personal debts (taxes too) and work some of my stash down to make sure it's not unmoveably large in the future.

Let me introduce you to some of these pretty fibers. Adrian is great about naming them all sorts of delightful names, too.

Stilt Walkers, on Rambouillet wool

The Old Heave Ho on Falkland wool

Dragon Business on Rambouillet wool

Colliding Galaxies on Organic Polworth wool

Now, the only question left is -- which one do I spin first?!
