I went to the "Sheep in the City" getaway today. It was waaaay in Milwaukee (that's a bit of a drive for me) I believe the shop-Just for Ewe sponsors it. It looked like a nice big group was there spinning and knitting and other such things in the middle of the room. There weren't a lot of vendors there-but it was all good quality stuff. Lael from Hearthside fibers was there. She's practically a neighbor of mine. I feel really lucky-I have a fleece reserved from one of her sheep when they shear this year (it's a beautiful brown). We talked about me possible getting a white fleece, too. I bought three braids of wool roving from her-Berry Patch, Marshmallow Chick and Frog Legs. I bought some bamboo from Fiber Lady. I also got some Frill yarn for making the corkscrew scarves. Then I got a really pretty pattern for a shawl from Corny Goodness. I wanted to buy some of their yarn, but ran out of money. They explained the whole process of how their yarn is made from corn. YES, corn! Its beautiful. I have their card so I can order some in the future.
So that's it-more fluffy stuff to add to the stash. I got me some spinnin' to do!
