2012 WI Spin-In

I went with my friend Carol to the Spin in today.  It was really nice.  I only bought one skein of yarn made from corn fiber.  We also went to the fiber/yarn "tasting" that was held in the evening.  I tried several fibers and spun up some crazy art yarn.  The coolest part was when I wanted to get a picture of the alpacas and they weren't cooperating-the owner took me in the pen, showed me how to hold one and I had Carol snap the picture.  He was sooooo soft-and humming the whole time.  His name is Iyata Supa.   I didn't get he little brown one's name.  It was an enjoyable afternoon and evening for sure.

  1. That sounds like a wonderful day. It would be nice to have a fiber tasting and sample all the different fibers we don't always have access too.

    Hooray for Alpaca cuddle time.
