Day Four--We're Still Going Strong.......

One of favorite parts of the day is show and tell.
it is a chance for anyone to flaunt their talents.

Since the theme was "Go Green in 17", we had several
who took advantage of the color to give us a true showing.
Here we see a handspun vest and hat 

How about a project that took a couple of years?
Hurray!  All done and lovely to look at and wear

How about this handspun natural colored fleece--
oh, WOW!

Rosemary is always energetic and shows off her finished
handspun shawl 

This is not handspun, but one of her favorite patterns to knit

afghan!  Can you believe?  Ready to wear over body or
around body


Ruth loves to do colorwork--she knit the sweater she was wearing
plus the two hats that are really warm

Kim is very knowledgeable about antique spinning distaffs.
She has made her distaffs from 3D printer--definitely true to
ancient designs.  Kim is known around the world for her
distaffs--she recently was asked to give lecture at Italian conference.

Here is the shawl she knit from her handspun alpaca/silk fiber
that was spun from her distaff

Here we have her first handspun silk, which
she wove into this beaded bag

Handspun wool woven on her loom gave her
