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.

A Little Bit of Felting

I haven't been up to much lately.  Got myself a nasty cold-but it's finally winding down.  Last weekend when I was feeling particularly lousy, but itchin" to be creative, I decided to felt a bunch of little bitty balls to make into earrings.  I had only 8 hour workdays this week, for a change, and had the ambition to punch out and hammer some little copper domes for the earrings.  I'm thinkin' they turned out awfully cute.
