Fibre East 25th-26th July
« on: July 21, 2015, 03:53:10 pm »
Anyone going? Would be lovely to meet up with some TAS-ers, especially as I missed Wonderwool. Will TRY not to spend too much, but OH has promised me a pair of carders for my birthday (have been using dog brushes up to now) so they are on the shopping list.

Having said that, most of my spinning lately has been fleece from my yuglet Shetland, Iris, that I'm spinning pretty much straight off her back - in the grease and uncarded. The spun yarn is coming out very similar to washed and carded - can't believe I didn't think of trying this before - it saves hours!
Where are we going - and why am I in this handcart?
