Spinning Sunday – Tour Special

Happy Tour de Fleece 2012!!!!!

Here’s a quick photo update for Days 1 and 2 of the tour.

Day One: WIP. Mohiar/Wool/Angelina. Finished spinning 2.5oz in about 2.5 hours. Also did a little drop spindling in the car!

 

Plyed the singles from yesterday. Slightly under spun because I watched TV instead of my wheel. Started some Silk/Merino from Fleece Artist.

 

Happy spinning!!!

That last picture is the newest colorway, Mermaid. It’s not up on the site yet, but email her and she will totally get you some!!! It’s probably my FAVORITE colorway she has.

I’ve spun around 205 yd of my Merino top that I got from Stony Mountain Fiber’s booth at the Montpelier Fiber Fest in Oct.

Speaking of Fiber Fests…anyone in the Pittsburgh area??? Who’s going to the Pittsburgh Knit and Crochet Festival in February?? I AM!!! Woot! I’m going with UPP (Unplanned Peacock) to work her booth!! COME SAY HI!!!!!

I’m super excited to be “working” for Natasha. I really want to learn more about dying and I’m thrilled to get to help out in her studio and travel with her! And did I mention I’m paid in YARN!?!?!?!

OH OH OH!! Also!?!? Totally sold another one of my necklaces at my LYS.

I’m also going to be selling my KOPT necklaces and earrings in the UPP booth at Pittsburgh so YAY that!!!! SQUEE!!!

It’s been a few weeks of yarny goodness. ALSO!!! My best friend got me a gift certificate to The Loopy Ewe and I got MORE sock yarn!!! I got T-Boheme by Sweet Georgia. SQUEE!!! I mean HOW PRETTY IS THAT?!?!?!

Terribly exciting stuff. Plus my very best friend is coming in TOMORROW and we will be going on a small yarn crawl down to Greensboro NC! She’s not much of a knitter, but she loves me enough to follow me in to the yarny depths. I’ll bring her to the dark side yet…*evil grin*

Well that’s all I have for now…going to go download some patterns from Rav…and watch NBC’s Thursday Night lineup. Gotta love it!
