Fundraiser for Amanda and book stocking at Serenity Tree

This is the first stocking we have at Serenity Tree that has some theme.. This time the stocking is moved to Monday at 1PM EST. I'm very excited to get inspiration from books and I had a lot of fun.. I haven't gotten a chance to reskein the yarns and I still have 2 to do today but this time I have multiple listing for several colorway so you can choose the yarn you want and have more chance to get it. There will be one handspun yarn as well but it might be the last one I'll be stocking in the next couple months. I'll be busy finishining up custom spinning and preparing for a major stocking in July for birthday bash. I also will be collaberating with Susan to present a handspun you can't resist.

I also would like to mentione that a dear DS member has befallen a tragic incident in her her family life, though I didn't know her personally but I have been in contact with her in the past. For her benefits, I'll be participating in a few auctions in Vin Thi Design store ( 2 of the listing is not up yet but for an eye candy, here's one that I hope will help with her final expenses and living cost.

Free handspun yarn for Diaper Swappers or Hyenacart forum chatters

For you, Diaperswappers and Hyenacart readers/chatters, to celebrate my 1 year anniversary spinning (with wheel), I'd like to offer free handspun yarns (roving dyed by me, approximately 4oz) to someone who really wants or needs the yarn but may not have the extra money in the budget to get one, or someone who needs some pick me up. (And hopefully someone that will love the yarn enough to make a finished product from it.)

How this works is, nominate someone (other than you) that meets that condition by leaving in the comment section:
1. The nominee's exact user name (and which forum).
If you know that the nominee is a member of both forums, please list both of his/her username and their respective forum.
2. The reason why you are nominating her/him
3. Your user name. You can only make one nomination.
You are only eligible to nominate someone if you are a registered user of Diaperswappers or Hyenacart as of yesterday (February 9).

I will take the top 5 most nominated person and use to pick the winner. I will have this open until (March 15th) March 31st and announce the winner by (March 20th) April 3rd. The winner will be able to choose a yarn from one of the finished yarns that will be posted as the contest's end is nearing.

To make it easier, copy and paste (and fill in the blank)
1. Who I nominate: ... from ... (DS or HC)
2. Why I nominate that person: ...
3. Who I am: ... from ... (DS or HC)

The closing date is delayed. I've just finished dyeing the roving. Here're the two choices. The winner can choose which one she likes/prefer to have.

Finally... here's the yarn to be won. The winner can choose between these 2 yarns.

Stocking Tuesday at Serenity Tree

I will have a medium size stocking tomorrow and I'm looking forward to this. I managed to whip out 3 handdyed yarns and 1 handspun yarns. I think I've spin faster this year. I managed to spin 3 pounds of yarn for January. WOW! I think it's a lot. Of course it depends on the fibers and if they're not compacted or felted, they're easier to draft and it goes faster (and of course nicer because there's less bumps)

Here's BRIGHT SUSHI. I've dyed the roving a few months ago and just haven't have a chance to spin it up. Though it's brighter (even brighter than the roving), it turned out quite nice. I'm hoping to spin some roving for the next GG stocking but I'm not sure if I can make it.
