Second Sunday Fiber Guild

I went to a spinning guild meeting today. I met a few lovely women, all who spun so fast it was amazing (and dizzying) to watch. I didn't get to speak to them all, but some where spinning angora (rabbit and mohair both) which just looked beautiful. I can't wait to get more experienced so that I can finally start to do these fibers justice. I got a grab bag full of yummy fleece- some pencil roving, some natural colored wool and creamy dreamy cotton- which oddly enough I had my hands on in Rhinebeck, but put it down when I was told that it was difficult to spin. I won't attempt it anytime soon, but I'll keep it packed away!

Holiday knitting is in full swing. I haven't finished yet, although I'm getting closer. I'm dying to start a sweater for me, but refuse to until I finish up the stuff for others.

I also got a ton of handmade soap from my mom so if you are a local snb-er (you know who you are!) you might just be getting some. (Check out her site- Lovely Lathers. I can vouch that her stuff is beyond heavenly.)

How is everyone else's holiday knitting coming along??

You are my hero for even trying to do holiday knitting. Seriously!

Can't wait to see the finished items.

How long have you been spinning?

My holiday knitting has come to a screeching halt. I ran out of sock monkey yarn and I don't have a label because apparently Yarn Barn doesn't believe in labels! :(
