Just got back from Olds Fibre Week, missed last year. Wonderful. As usual I went a bit crazy at the Merchant Mall BUT I did keep to my resolution. Only fibre, no yarn.
But piled on the hotel room bed is roughly 20 lbs of glorious fibre, so now I have a new resolution, before next year, before I allow myself to purchase any more fibre, I have to spin 20 lbs.
Not the same 20 lbs, fibre from the stash counts but 20 lbs.
I thought about resolving to knit 20 lbs but that might be a bridge to far.
It's very hot here and spinning is cooler than knitting, plus the Tour De France is on, my favorite spinning entertainment so I have made a good start.
Started with these 1 lbs bags from a great and local supplier, the sheep are all raised close by.
Two colours of Icelandic, Shetland, Romney and far right a Jacob.
