I met Briar Rose Chris.
There, I said it. And it was such a drool fest that I had to use both arms up to my elbows (and the back of Patti's shirt) just to keep from drooling all over the Pretties!
There were bags of lambs wool,
Buffalo hair Roving,
Suri Alpaca unshorn, ......................and shorn
and Llama and Silk and Bambo.
There was even Pocket Art from a Cigarette Machine
See? There it is! In Chris' very hands!
See? That's me failing miserably at
NOT FREAKING OUT cuz I'm standing next to Chris of Briar Rose!
See? On the right? That's her blond hair!
Well after that the day is a blur. When we got home this is what we had.
Patti bought an entire sheep fleece for spinning! It's gorgeous!
She bought yarn for dying, buffalo roving for spinning
and yarn for knitting.
I bought some sock yarn from Plain & Fancy Sheep & Wool Co. and promised to actually finish a pair!
60% Superwash Merino
I can't wait to start working with it!
After dinner (cooked by Patti's Awesome DH!) she gave me my First Spinning Lesson on her Louet!
I sort of got the hang of it. It's kinda like playing the drums or patting your head and rubbing your tummy while singing Twinkle Twinkle Little Star.
Maybe I should have waited to start drinking until after the lesson.
(Them are some hunka-hunka legs!)
Look! Look! My First Spinning!
Whew! I might be rested up by October.
Just in time for SAFF!
