Believe it or not, it is possible to make a yarn--perhaps not your finest yarn, but a yarn nonetheless.
Now just how long did you think you could draw that fiber, perhaps it went across the street?
Nothing like a few games to humble a person. What a jolly time was had by all.
We do have lots of plans for the upcoming months. In February, it will be back to the English Breeds and we'll will dig into some lovely English Jacob. I'm really looking forward to this one! In March it will be the Beth Smith workshops (Saturday and Sunday, March 5th and 6th) and another British breed, Scottish Hebridean fleece; April will be the Oxford breed and either the Iowa Federation meeting in Decorah or Plyaway in Kansas City. Phew! We are going to be busy spinners.
