I can't wait!
How did it go? If I didn't already have plans I would have attempted to show up. Charlotte isn't that far from SC.

Wow! I can't believe I didn't put an update in here!

The spinning demo went VERY well. I didn't sell anything, but that's okay. I figure that I'll sell some things as time goes by. I did accomplish one thing, though. I spun enough of the confetti wool to fill two bobbins. So, I plied them together to make a beautiful skein of two-ply yarn!

Here it is, together with the blue merino I spun earlier. I'm a happy spinner!

I just finished spinning some purple merino I've had in my stash for a while. I got it on eBay, but can't remember who I bought it from.

It's SUPER SOFT, but not a color I would ever use. So, I'm giving it to a forum member that loves purple. Andrea!



Here is how it looked while it was on the wheel. I used a flash for this photo, so the color doesn't look right. It's actually a true "grape" purple.

I wound all the purple merino onto my PVC Niddy Noddy, wet it, and am leaving it to dry overnight on the niddy noddy. Good thing I don't have to worry about warping the niddy noddy, since it's made from PVC pipes.
