Yarn along......in which there is an overload of fibery things!

7:16 AM

I have had the most amazing weekend! Full of fiber and friends and fun! A jam packed weekend that I am now trying to recover from! But so glad I got it all in!

Friday found me at our monthly Spinning Guild Meeting The North Country Spinners. Where Nelda Davis gave a workshop on identifying fibers and we talked about our Guild Retreat which is happening in 2 weeks.....Fiber Fallout 2014! (another weekend of fiber fun! Woo Hoo!!)

Then on Saturday I headed up to the Pa Endless Mountains Fiber Festival. My 3 daughters came along for more fun and we really enjoyed the day even though it was extremely hot and humid, it never rained and we were thankful for that. A special treat was seeing Karen of  the famous Pumpkin Sunrise blog who was there with her daughter. We chatted in between buying skeins of lace weight......hmmmm.....I wonder what shawl she is thinking of for that?!?!  It was great to meet an internet friend in real life!

Sunday had me heading in the other direction and going to the Garden State Sheep Breeders Festival. Our guild runs the skein competition and holds demos all day. I had entered 2 skeins for the first time and actually placed with both of them! So fun!! We spun all day and taught drop spindling classes.....the weather was just gorgeous cool and breezy! I also got to meet an internet friend today! Lexi is the owner of Queen Bee Fibers. Where she and her husband raise bees and dye beautiful fiber! I picked up a few braids of fiber and their famous bee cream.....it's amazing!!

Whew! What a weekend! Not a lot of knitting got done but I did do a lot of spinning! I bought this adorable little drop spindle on Saturday and can not stop spinning with it! I am spinning some shetland roving.

So now it is back to reality......but I am already gearing up for another big weekend of fiber fun! Only two weeks till Fiber Fallout 2014! Happy knitting everyone!!
