Spinning at the Festival

I went back to the Sheep and Wool festival today to help with the sheep to shawl demonstration.

Here is MY Trusty wheel and I unloading some low twist singles for weaving.

And here be the weaver:

I went to the Fleece show and sale area and while most of the better fleeces were all ready taken, I did find a 10 lb bag of Rambouielette (sp??) for $10 that was marked for commercial. That just means it was not as skirted as it could have been. It's oober soft like targhee and merino. Then I found 2 lbs of wonderful Shetland, skirted for handspinning. Here it all is all bagged up. I gotta tell yeah, I think I will save all my spendings for fleece for the festival because I can see, touch, and smell the fleeces before I buy them. And they are priced right with no shipping to pay. The closet is now officially overflowing with bags of fleece....must resist purchasing anymore for another year! I think I cought someone's cold...or maybe it was the exposure to so many allergens there at the fairgrounds but now I have the beginnings of something in my head. Stuffed up sinuses...the beginnings of a sore throat...blah. All worth it though. I had fun and now I am exhausted...just in time for the new work-week to begin. Yay.

The Stash:

And I designed a nice page for journaling my fiber stash. Click the photo to be taken to where you can download the word document for your own stash management needs.

Until next time...

  1. Hey, did the birds come on the Louett, or did you put them on there? They look great on that wheel!

    Have you heard of Spin Out?


    I think there's an event in NYC coming up, but there's plenty of online opportunity for donations and stuff. Check it out.

  2. Hey there! Nope, I put them on there. They are Wallies Wallpaper cutouts. I found them at Hobby Lobby for half off on clearance. Joanns has a lot of the wallies and so does Micheals. I am eventually gonna put on some Onestroke flowers between them too. I just need a bit more practice with the Onestroke before I go attacking the wheel with paint!!

  3. i'd liked be there too!!!

    i'm cray about this fleece!!!!


Thanks for the feedback! Most comments will be published right away except for you pathetic spammers who's messages will never see the light of day. If you are offended by having to fill one a "prove you are not a robot" form, my goodness...chill out! It takes two seconds to do and saves me a ton spam to have to filter through and it takes two seconds, MAX. If you are that easily offended, maybe you should simply not comment, and seek some counseling.
