When do I get nervous?

Ok, the wheel was only purchased in May, so how has this happened? I simply have a wool obsession, it's not just yarn, and at the rate I'm buying roving this won't get spun into yarn for a very long time...... so it is indeed an obsession. I've already forgotten that I had a bunch of it. Between fiber and yarn, I believe that I have established my retirement stash. It's so sad that work gets in the way of my hobbies. I guess as long as the checkbook can sustain it, I'll be ok, which unfortunately means I have to keep working.

spin, spin, spin

I can't believe an entire month has gone by since my last post. The school year wrapped up, I spent an eventful weekend in Kansas City with my relatives, and I've had almost two weeks of vacation. I guess that sums up a month for me. I do have some lovely treats to show for my time however:
This is some top I picked up at the fiber fair for Web's annual tent sale. It was really fun to spin. I picked the orange/red one up at the New Hampshire Sheep and Wool festival, I spun some up before, but this little bit is better!

The orange/purple is from End of the World Farm also from the NHSWF! Mom helped pick this out.
The blue/purple is Romney from the Spunky Eclectic, thunderstorm color and below is some BFL in the Tie Dye color! I love how that came out.
