What does one do with a one-pound grab bag of dyed fiber from Left Hand Pinkie?
dumped carefully arranged it in my chair to show it
off. It is bits and pieces of hand dyed roving plus a couple of mini
batts (orange with sparkles in lower left corner and white mohair(?) in
upper right corner.
Only one thing to do. Take it all to Brooke's for a spinning gathering!
Left: Kate (having just put away her felted house-to-be knitting, but notice her lovely felted bag), Kate (spinning some beautiful natural brown wool).
Middle: Linda (drop spindling something - oops forgot to ask :-/), Liz (also spinning some unknown-to-me fiber, perhaps some of their very own bunny's angora), Isabella (daughter of Liz, they share the wheel, had been spinning angora).
Right: Isabella again (sunbathing), Sonya (spinning baby alpaca, or cashmere, or polwarth locks, she got a lot of spinning done). Yes, that is an open front door behind Sonya. Gotta love our Mediterranean climate. Not pictured is Erika. She had to get home to her little one before I had a chance to snap a picture. Click on the link to see the gorgeous quilts she has made.
Here is Brooke holding her dog, Taz. He had just jumped up on her lap through the roving she was splitting in half. She was spinning some beautiful BFL roving that was naturally dyed. Read more about it on her blog here.
Socks! Yes, I am that predictable.
I also joined The Silverado Handweavers Guild (Kate, Kate, and Brooke are all members). That will be oodles of fun. They meet in Napa (city not auto parts). My FIL lives there, so I'll probably take Sammie and let him play with his buddy Pancho while I get crafty.
Thank you Brooke for a wonderful time! It was so much fun seeing old friends and meeting new friends.
