About time for a fresh post...

Well, I think so anyway!
I finished the body of the Buttony sweater that I am in a KAL for.
Now onto the sleeves, I just have to get that hat off the needles! LOL

I was at the Weavers and Spinners Guild meeting for Langley last night. I saw some fantastic work, spoke to some lovely people, and generally had a good time. Fiberfest is coming up in Abbotsford at the Tradex May 10-11. I wonder if I will have time to volunteer...... that would be cool! I did however get a second job lined up so I may not be able to. Gotta put away that money for a house, and to make that debt go away.

So I have been carding the fleece that I dyed. I can't wait to try spinning it, but first I have to send some out. I promised some to a friend and I am sending to Australia for my current swap. Yes, the one that I am organizing..... I had to join, everyone is so great! LOL

Oh and I was the recipient of a gift today. Faye gave me a shalish weaving loom.... and some of her own handspun fiber! She even had some form her ram "Sam" he was a dark thing! I hope to have pictures very soon, of everything! LOL

I would love to learn how to spin. But can you believe it? The materials are really hard to find here....

Thanks for reminding me of Fiberfest. I missed it last year (because I totally forgot until about mid-July!).
