USA Haul: CCSmile Fiber

So I got a new spindle while I was over in the US, but I also needed some fiber. That's where my good friend Kathryn, or CCSmile2006, comes in.

I ordered two items from her - a merino/tencel braid and a drumcarded batt.

The braid is called 'Happy, Oh So Happy' and I first fell in love with it actually when it was in her Ravelry stash. I messaged her about it, and she agreed to sell it to me. I love these colors, and I've spun her merino/tencel roving before - it's very smooth, and fairly even-blended. Plus, the dye saturation is great.

The batt is part of her Peter Pan-themed spinalong, and this batt is Tinkerbell. It's a brighter green than in my photos, and contains a dizzying number of fibers! I've done a Disney-themed spinalong with Kathryn before, Beauty and the Beast - I knit my Belle Bow from that yarn. This, I'm thinking of spinning into coils.

  1. These are some really nice colors, but I have to admit, I like the green one the best.

    Very nice!

  2. I love it too! It's got so many different goodies in it, and it's smooth and sparkly. I've just started spinning it, and it's so much fun.
