|The only thing that I spun on this day was the alpaca yarn in the upper right hand corner.|
I would have spun more, but I had to attend a huge fiber sale!
A local fiber artist is moving and Greenberry House in Meadows of Dan, Virginia is
having a big sale this weekend and next weekend to sell lots of items.
I purchased quite a bit of fiber and a few small pieces of equipment.
Here are my purchases:
a Lincoln sheep fleece, a Cotswold sheep fleece, Turkish Spindle, Flick Carder, apron,
a weaving book, a small drop spindle, thrown silk waste, silk roving,
cochineal dyed Angora, silk hankies, a recycled blue jean cotton/flax roving,
mohair top, recycled denim.white & brown cotton roving,
cream colored cotton roving, more silk roving, gold Tussah silk, blue silk noil,
merino/silk/cashmere roving, superfine Merino top, a cone of turquoise yarn,
Icelandic wool roving, brown/cream/black roving, 8 oz white wool roving,
10 oz white Lincoln wool locks, a handmade wool basket, and a couple of bags of
assorted wools which includes some beautiful long Lincoln wool locks dyed green.
|This was my first project using my new blending board!|
The dyed roving used in this project is what I dyed last weekend.
The new Meadows of Dan Elementary School is under construction and it is looking fabulous so far. I can't wait to see what it looks like when it is completed.
