Alpacas, sheep and knitting, oh my..

Last weekend I made a journey to a fiber festival. Lots of fun.

I found some things to buy, tried out some wheels. My favorite wheel was a Lendrum. But I discovered something funny about myself. I went to, of course buy fiber and yarn, but I also was shopping for a wheel. I sat and tried quite a few. Everyone was so nice and helpful. I decided I liked the Lendrum best.

But......right now, I think I like spinning with a spindle. I am always trying to slow down. My job is so fast paced, and as I started trying to spin on a wheel, I just thought about how fast I could go.

Then I started looking at spindles and trying them out and it felt good and right. I discovered that I want a wheel, but right now, what I need is to spin on a spindle.

With that said check out my booty:

Yes, as you will notice, no yarn, so I better get busy with my spindle, giggles.

May your needles fly as fast as dragonflies...

    I was given a spindle about two and a half years ago, and I've yet to give it a try. Spinning my own yarn sounds like a lot of fun...but I fear that I might like it too much and find myself inundated with a fiber stash. :)

  2. You better put that roving under lock and key because I'm fixin' to stalk you and steal your stash!!!

    It's great!

  3. Well, you answered my question about the wheels. I think I'll stick with a spindle too. It really is very relaxing.

    I love all the fiber you came home with. It's gorgeous!
