I spent the weekend in a very pretty little town of Vernon, Connecticut at the 100th Conn Sheep and Wool Association Fiber Festival. Now, I have not been to many fiber fests, but this one seemed very nice, not too big or too small. Christa Hobson, of Aisling Yarns, and I set up our booth on Friday night, enjoyed a good night sleep and hoped for a day of good sales on Saturday. Good sales we did have.
So, I had to do my part to ensure the other vendors had a good day too, after all, it's only fair! Now I did not buy ALL of this, some was a birthday gift from my parents (the swift and ball winder). I turned 36 on Sunday the 26th. I LOVE my sheepy mug, too cute.
This, however, was my favorite purchase!!! I found my Sonata!!! And with some of the pretty purple, mohair blend roving I bought....
I've started this. I love the way this wheel spins, so smooth. And it looks so pretty in this picture with the Flowering Almond just starting to bloom in the background. Makes my think I may either find or dye my own pinks to ply it with. Did not think I was going to find color inspiration while staging a photo! I guess it just shows you can find inspiration anywhere, anytime. Enjoy the beautiful weather, get outside and spin, knit, crochet, weave, or just sit!
