but I was there to check out the spinning fibre. You see, I want to spin some laceweight so that eventually I can knit a Wheatsheaves Scarf entirely from handspun. I'll use a small drop spindle for the project. I don't have the skills to spin such a fine yarn on the wheel, and it will be more enjoyable to have something portable. This will be a long-term goal. Here's what I found...
|Alpaca knitting yarn from Silver Cloud Alpacas.|
|More of same--spun at Wellington Fibres in Elora, ON.|
|Kool-aid dyed roving from Cornerstone Fibres.|
Tomorrow is the Sheep to Shawl competition, with 3 teams in the running. Our Guild won last year.
Here's wishing them good luck this time out.
