this show is always so quick! i got to spend the night with my spinning guru friend lauren, her husband, and their baby (the original baby belle by the way!)… and came home with this beauty.
lauren got the 40th anniversary cherry version and was kind enough to let me purchase her old one from her. i will be able to have much much more control over my yarns with this wheel. can’t wait to start playing! thanks lauren. it will get plenty of love and exercise ;)
as for the show, it is always well organized and fun. my two handspun shelves went from full to a rather pathetic 8 skeins over the 5 hours. i got to meet all sorts of fabulous fibery folks, but was especially happy to finally shake real hands with sarah and lolly. i also loved seeing those who bought from me last year and hearing stories of what they did with the handspun they bought. i’m excited to see all the striping knitting out there – since subtle stripes and shifting stripes were most of what i had. yay stripes!
