Fibery Goodness

Yea, I stole my title from a great podcaster, Meghan from Stitch-It, she has a fantastic podcast and you should check it out. She is also the inspiration/instigator for my container garden and my Artisan bread obsession.

I went to my first fiber event yesterday the 5th of June. I went with a knitter friend and we had a blast. I bought yarn for a shawl project and some fiber and a spindle from a horrible enabler, Highland Handmades. They offered me a slight deal to encourage me to try the spinning thing. We'll see about that. It is hard and I'm trying to get my legs(or hands) under me and I figure out the process. Here is what I saw!!


He is a pretty pretty beast!!


Very cute!

Are you kidding me? That looks AWESOME for a beginner spindler.

and the Evil Enabler says you do fine work, too.

Thanks for the shout outs and happy spinning!
