I’m enjoying demonstrating this spindle. I look forward to having this thing going all weekend. The other cool thing is that they each come with a velvety pouch and instructions. Plus the makers are really sweet. I almost had a booth next to them at MASW but I decided a corner was best. I usually have a few friends stopping by so having a little extra elbow room (so I don’t poke my neighbors) is a good thing. Now I know why SPA put me in the corner, it was a good call.
Then an order of Greensleeves arrived. The Pink Ivory Mjolinor makes my heart beat fast. The way the wood looks is just incredible. And so I just had to have it. Yes, I had to buy it from the shop, I couldn’t help it. I explained to Abby yesterday that me owning a fiber store is like an alcoholic owning a bar. It’s all research…..
I’m working on carding up some fiber to mimic the colors. Of course I’ll be spinning it on her. I have part of it done already. I’ll be plying 2 different colors and 2 different fiber blends together.
The yellow is BFL, Sparkle, Silk, and Mohair.
Speaking of carding I’m working up tons of batts. It looks as though we may finally get some sun today so I can get photos for you. I’m planning on having several big baskets of carded “doughnuts” for the frolic.
