About a walk around Penny's studio--hanging at her windows are hand woven panels--couldn't ask for a better view
She is threading her loom with wool for commissioned blanket.
And look at these fibers--a new way to present wool fibers--punis, used most often with cotton
and a wonderful basket of dyed mohair locks
And look at this assortment of handspun yarns, all from the hands of Penny for her sales.
Let's begin our show and tell portion of the gathering..............
First up is Rosemary, showing off her hand ginned colored cotton
some cotton bolls are still intact
Rosemary also bought this selection of wool punis at Michigan fiber event this summer
She has decided to ply these two fibers together for a future woven item
Some sparkle in the red one
Kate had taken a felting workshop recently and presented her book covers
She plans to make individual books for her grandkids--lucky kids!
Louise was showing off her fancy hand knit socks--although not handspun, they are definitely made of fiber!
She was spinning this luscious yummy wool blend--she likes it so much, she had to buy more from Penny's stash!
Lovely bobbins of singles
Penny had purchased this hemp product earlier in the summer--it certainly has an earthy smell
It will take a little more processing before it is spin able--all fibers are good--even if more processing is involved.
Fibers are OUR main stay of life!
