On the eve of the first Fluff'N'Stuff box...

Ok. I admit it. I want one. Very very very badly. The stuff in that box is so awesome that I can barely wait. I will have to bring my laptop to work with me tomorrow and take an early lunch so I can be online at noon when it comes up for sale. I'll have to. Unless I call in sick it worth it? YES!

Check out the links below to see for yourself!
Oh, and wear natural fibers; hug your cats!

UPDATE: I GOT ONE!!! I'll post when I get it so you all can see the goodies I got!

Fairs & Fibery Goodies

Can you all see me patting myself on the back? I'm going to have my fingerless mitts on display at Rhinebeck! Me...I keep pinching myself. I'm going to be a part of the CVM Conservancy display as my mitts were made entirely from a CVM fleece that I purchased from a Conservancy member; I washed the wool, dyed it with Wilton's food colors in a crock pot, spun the yarn, and knit the mitts from a pattern I got on the web. Credit for the pattern goes to Ms. Amy Ripton for her "Hedgerow Mitts" from Knitter's Review. I knit one mitt and made a minor change to the pattern to make them fit my hands more snugly, but other than that, they were a fabulous pattern and so easy to knit.

To find out more about CVM fleeces, check out this link: and to see where I got my very own CVM fleece to work on, check out Linda Hatt's site: Linda is a member of the CVM Conservancy and her fleeces and her customer service are exemplary.

If you get to wishing for some fibery goodness, check out the little note I've included below about the Fibery Co-Op. A Fluff'N'Stuff box just might be in your future....

Remember...Wear natural fibers; hug your cats!
