First is from Lunabudknits minus the flax top that I picked up and some dyes, is not 1 but 3 colors of glitz, 2 oz of random colors of silk noil, a Lunabud Batt and some purple merino (that Stephanie handed me on the way out, isn't she sweet?)
Second I have here 4, 5oz balls of Donna Jo's fantastic roving blends
Third is some of Kathleen's dreamy washed Lincoln lamb locks.
And Forth is some super Shetland roving from George and Theresa. A dark brown and a creamy oatmeal white with little dark fibers throughout.
While I did buy a few other things I think I'll save the rest for another blog post!
I just got back from the SIFAF(see header ) yesterday. And boy was it a blast!!!!!
I spent the whole day Saturday there getting lots of fiber goodies and tools and dye and ... inspiration. I also did it again, I don't for the life of me why I can Never remember to take any photos!!! :-/ but I plan to take a few of some of the things that I got a the fest. I think that some of the venders that I was inspired by this year were Stephanie from lunabudknits ,Donna Jo from Breezy Manor , Lynne from Blue Acorn ,Victoria from Follow the star studio , Kathleen from B&G Farms, George and Theresa from Buerer's Sheep farm and Barb from The Weavers Loft to name a few that I know among many great others. I also got to try a book charkha thanks to Andrea aka DigitalDurga on Ravelry, thanks So much for being such an enabler, now I have one more thing on my list of things to look for. :-D
Happy spinning y'all
Whew having company is a blast! And having 4 people at one time is different too. First my Aunt and her granddaughter got here and we talked and chatted then my grandparents got here and amid more talking we ate dinner,afterwords to my surprise my cousin wanted to learn how to knit, which I was happy to teach her. She is amazing, after an hour or two of learning what to do she took off and was knitting like a pro.
The next day we went shopping in a town about 60 min away stopping in various shops. With my cousin knitting on the way there and back , and of course I had a spindle spinning as we went, as well. By the next morning before my Aunt and cousin has to go she had time to finish up knitting a change purse and left with some yarn and needles. So here is a big cheer for my cousin (who shall remain nameless) WooHoo! Happy Knitting! Well I'd better go and get back to our other guests.
