Well, apparently, I’m not just one crazy (addicted) knitter who’ll drive an hour in the cold rain to buy some yarn but a spinner as well.
At Sedalia I took the spinning with a drop spindle class. Apparently, I’m also a spinner. I’m not a GREAT spinner but I made yarn. Some of it was even decently even yarn.
The black roving is alpaca and the white a wool.
Robin (who I met there with her very brave and nice hubby) suggested I try some Cottswold as beginner roving. I got a big ball (bigger than a softball) but I don’t think it’s enough!! And in hindsite, it was just 3 1/2 oz but it looked like a lot! Really…
When I first got there I met up with Robin and Dianne and some of her friends (I”m sorry I can’t remember their names!)
Knitnana was there with her bags (you really should go check them out!).
After class and around lunch time I ran into Nancy, Laura and Tanya. Fortunately, the rain had tapered off and it wasn’t all bad all day. I did hit rain on the way home but it wasn’t too awful bad.
I had an absolutely wonderful time! Oh, I did buy a few other things too… (see, I had such a good time, I forgot about my other purchases!)
Two little sheep, one for me and one for Mom:
Some beautiful alpaca (50% off no less!) for a scarf for a friend:
some sock yarn and needles:
When I got home Bartholamew and Pepper were most excited to check out all this weird smelling stuff:
A good day overall.
