The day flew by for me and I can't wait to move on to the carder!
I am so lucky to live so close to a fiber mill that's run by a friend. I told her that some day I may even be skilled enough to help defray the cost of my own fiber processing, she laughed nervously. :D
While I was at the mill, a lovely couple stopped in that is part of the group that's holding a spinning event, and now it appears as if I will be attending the Spin In that's being held in April in Pewaukee, WI. (yes, that's a real place)
For anyone interested, here is the mill's website: www.argylefibermill.com
And if you want to attend the event in April, here's the link to their website: http://www.wispinin.org
Tsk, tsk, tsk; a fiber blogger in a fiber mill without a camera?!?ReplyDelete
I have been wanting to go to Argyle, my neighbor goes up there fairly often and loves that place!ReplyDelete
I finally got brave and washed some fleeces today-it was terrifying, I thought I was going to felt it all. Now I have to learn to spin!
Bring your camera next time silly!
Ok ladies, I'm now properly chastised. What on earth was I thinking, no camera?ReplyDelete
Glad you made it through the fleece washing without a nervous breakdown. Don't panic, the sheep are growing more for you right now. :D
Thanks for posting this! I am looking for a mill to spin batts into yarn for me, I will send her an email to see if she will do this. Exciting! One mill much closer to me is not spinning at this time, so I am happy to have this suggestion.ReplyDelete
You lucky. Don't forget your camera when you go to the spin in. - JenReplyDelete
