A couple of interesting packages arrived in the mail. First up, two lbs of corriedale top from the Fibre Garden in a light grey streaked with bits of black. This is headed for the spinning wheel and, eventually, a Zora cardigan for me. Yesterday afternoon I spun the first 50g (I know, I know, I'm switching back and forth from metric to imperial measurements) and I'm very pleased with the result.
WEBS, sold at a huge discount, for a test knit of my upcoming Petrova jacket. Get some of this while you still can; it's an amazing blend of wool, silk, and cashmere and so soft it's perfect for a cowl-necked garment.
Kingston Handloom Spinners and Weavers Guild. They have the second floor of the old townhall in Portsmouth, opposite the Olympic Harbour. Here's Alison plying some cotton she had earlier spun on a spindle. We had a potluck lunch and I learned a lot.
The Guild will have a booth at the upcoming Wolfe Island Fibre Festival. Hope to see you there.
