Rosanne and Dog House Yarns always have great goody bags and door prizes. Here’s a glimpse of the contents: two mini-braids of fiber from Greenwood Fiberworks, a wraps per inch tool complete with an attached list of gauges, and some Mary Kay lotion. Sissy and Gretchen supplied the dog hair on the fleece throw. Hem.
The WPI tool was hand-crafted by Fritz of Dog House Yarns. It’s a handy little thing and will live happily in the end table with my other fiber-like tools.
I also managed to score a door prize of even more Greenwood Fiberworks “pigtails”.
Aren’t they pretty? Pigtails – the small, sampler-sized braids – really appeal to me as I can spin them in one sitting. I’ve done one cowl with some of my first handspun bits, so I’m already pondering what I might do with these beauties.
I brought home some other goodies as well, including some “faux” cashmere for Gg. While it is synthetic and thus, doesn’t smell like cashmere, oddly that’s what the girl went for as I spread everything out to admire my haul. No, I don’t have a photo, because I was too busy rescuing the fiber from Gg. Since it was bagged and she couldn’t rub all over on it, she clamped the bit sticking out of the bag in her mouth and was about to trot off with it!
I’m spinning a rather non-descript, long-staple processed wool right now, and she couldn’t care less about that, even with the PANK in there. I’m almost done, and I’m eager to finish it up and get it plied so I can see what the girl thinks of the faux cashmere when I spin it.
To the spinners out there… what’s on your wheel or spindle?
