Okay, so National Spinning and Weaving Week has come and gone. Doesn't really matter to spinners or weavers. We can celebrate our craft any day of the week! Tuesday was such a day when our group of spinners gathered to spin our tales and our fibers. We had a variety of wheels in operation.
There was also a presentation of fibers and yarns created in the past few months. The basket contains dyed fibers, some with kool-aide, some with natural dyes. The other plastic bags contain BFL (Blue Faced Leicester breed) dyed with natural dyes (purchased in Michigan). The red and blue skeins are 60% wool/40% linen. The other skeins are WINNERS! Yes, the spinner won first place on these skeins at a local spinning fair and exhibit.
As usual, any day spinning is a good day!
