Today’s Distraction

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , on August 22, 2009 by shortysmg

I’ve been trying for two days to go through my issues of Handwoven and pick a dishcloth pattern to weave on my loom, but I keep getting distracted.

Yesterday it was an outing with friends at our local Panera (from noon to 10pm mind you)! Which was loads of fun.

Today it’s been everything from playing with Harley, he can be such a little bugger sometimes. To long phone calls with friends, which is always great. To spinning with my new Trindle spindle. Which I actually finally got a short video clip of.

I’m going to try to buckle down now and get a pattern picked out tonight, or maybe tomorrow.

I think I need a nap!

BRB!

Michigan Fiber Festival Fun

Saturday was the Michigan Fiber Festival in Allegan, MI.. And I was fortunately enough to be able to attend with three of my good friends.
Nicole, Amy and Angela

There was lots to see, and I think we saw it all twice.

Nicole found the spindle she had been wanted for over a year.

I even got to weave on a floor loom! Which was great fun for me.

I also picked up a new spindle called a “Trindle”, and all I can say about it is I’m in love with Spindle spinning again. DSC00081

I also got a “Lucet”, and have been having fun trying to perfect my tension on it.

It was a great day, with great friends, and I can’t wait to do it again next year!
