Michigan Fiber Fest
I went with friends to the Michigan Fiber Fest on Friday, and spent the weekend in Michigan at a lovely lake house. Jane and I took a spinning class on Friday morning, Spinning the Colors of Shetland, which was not really worth the money. No instruction, no history, just 9 of the colors, some of which were not well processed. It did get me thinking about making this hat with my handspun using natural colors of Shetland.
Taking a class on Friday morning got us moving early to the fair, looking at animals and shopping the market (goodies for tomorrow).
Look at the puffs on these ears!!!
Right down the street from the summer-house that we were staying at was an Alpaca ranch. We spend a few minutes petting and feeding the mommas and babies in the maternity pen. Love some of the hairdo’s!
And the beach was lovely. All the better with a good glass of red wine and knitting.
