Onion Dyed Fiber
OK, I guess I have something else to talk about, now that I have your ear. Today I went to Lambtown with my friend Christie. We had a great time but I spent way too much money. I bought one of the new Nancy's Knit Knacks tilting lazy kates from Carolina Homespun. It's a very nice piece of equipment to add to my spinning tools (not that I need another lazy kate!). The rest of the booty is fiber (like I need any more of that!). I got some georgeous processed white alpaca (19 oz.), 4 oz. of white German angora, a braid of carbonated soy (dark charcoal gray), one braid of some beautiful mixed grays, maroons and teal greens (merino), 2 beautiful 4 oz. braids of Blue Faced Leicester & silk, and one of alpaca and silk. But it was great fun I have to say. This should hold me till next weekend at the CogKnitive Fiber Retreat in Tehachapi.
