It was great to see you all and I had a truly fantastic time.
The far left is a Friend’s Folly Farm Pounder and the other little bags are Alpaca/merino/Bamboo blends from Flaggy Meadow Fiberworks. I’m having a real hard time deciding what to spin first. I want to push that pound of FFF fiber ahead of everything else. I’m still not sure what I want to do with the Flaggy Meadow stuff but I knew I had to have it. I also placed a special order with Kim of The Woolen Rabbit and I’ll blog that when it comes.
I got it before SPA and I love it to pieces. Why?
1. Holds a ton of books
2. Easy to carry around and light
3. I can spin or knit while I read which isn’t easy to do with a book.
4. It can hold patterns – you can make notes and whatnot
5. It has a reading function
6. It will hold music or audio books
7. Lots of books I like are cheap or free
8. Did I mention it’s easy to transport
9. I can get my newspaper on it.
10. It’s not back lit. Computers make my eyes hurt in a short amount of time, this doesn’t.
I could go on and on and on. And I have but I’ll leave it for now.
Sherie is the sweetest.
She made me these. I’m a very lucky Boogie. It’s an absolutely sweet blend. I can’t wait to dig in. When I got this, I wanted it to jump just in front of the FFF stuff or maybe spin it at the same time since I can do more than one project at once. I may need more bobbins.
I took a braid to do a shop sample. It’s Light BFL in “Capricorn”. The spindle is a Lady Barbara from Greensleeves in Bois de Rose and Redwood Burl. I should be putting up a new batch of her spindles this week.
I don’t blog about every bag I get. I have a great love for bags. Judy didn’t have a very tough job of convincing me that this bag at SPA is the one I HAD to have.
I got it from Unique One and I love it. I haven’t even filled up all the pockets yet. That’s right, I didn’t find enough junk to fill in the pockets. Don’t worry though, I’ll find stuff eventually.
Someone that shall remain nameless kept telling me that I needed to get the Argyle sheep up on Cafepress. So I did.
Here’s the Cafepress Store.
I didn’t put a mark up on anything so it’s all base price. I haven’t spent a lot of time on there and may not. I mostly wanted them for me but I figure you all can have some too if you want. I love my little argyle sheep. He looks so manic.
