i'm sorry i didn't take more photos of the house and spinning circle. guess i was just too busy! but trust me.... lots of happy spinners and lots of wheels!
the market was great! probably less shoppers this year because of the rain and the lack of motel rooms in eugene.
this is one of Kate's fibers... BFL, called Starling that she did for a special online spin-along. these colors just sing and of course, BFL is one of my most favorite fibers.
and from Rollie at Fox Hollow this ultra bright bag o' fiber that i knew i needed to buy because there was one left when i made my last round of the market. this is cormo/mohair/angora. and the colors are spectacular!
from Beacon Bend Alpacas... this batt felt so lusciously soft and silky, that i needed to have it! it has alpaca, mohair, silk, silk noil and something else that i can't remember, but i can hardly wait to spin it.
i haven't spun flax in a very long time and i love the color and it's soft and shiny (for flax), so it was an impulse buy and i'm not sorry!
|kiss me! or at least feed me.|
|i wish i could have this!|
