The Palouse Fiber Fest was a huge deal. It's been a few years since I've seen the 1912 building full of spinners. Classes were fun looking! From Fair Isle knitting, to indigo dyeing with Sarah Swett there was stuff going on. I bought a bunch of amazing yarn, and some sweet springy Targhee. I dyed it a deep royal blue. Lovely stuff! Jacey Boggs cancelled at the last minute-too bad she would have fit right in :)
Moscow, a real fiber destination. Excited to go again next year!
I am lucky as I have a great local source for fleece. My friend Cheryl runs Little Canyon Lavender & Wool Farm nearby. She keeps Rambouillet, Merino, and Blue Faced Leicester sheep. We visited on a sunny day late in April. What a great place! I bought three fine fleeces. I test washed the curliest one. Angel hair! Soft and super curly, guaranteed to add wonderful texture to my batts.
More happy fun news:
Remember this sweet cardigan I knitted for the kid? It's been featured in the neatest place!
Jacquard Products has used a closeup of the rainbow cardigan for their new acid dye set! How sweet is that? A big win for all handspinners everywhere. Anytime handspun yarn is featured, it's all good!
