Yesterday I went to Spa IX in Freeport, Maine. It was so much fun! Thank you Lynne for taking me. There were tons of people there ... I was so impressed by how many people came up to see me that I didn't recognize until they said their names, and then I recognized their names from their posts to the New England Textile Arts mailing list. It was very good to be able to see many old friends! And it was good not to have to be working!!!
I was fortunate to meet up with Cindy who did a demonstration of spinning one-handed for me! Hi Cindy! It made me realize that the way I am doing it is correct, so I think I'm going to keep on spinning after all. I stopped because I didn't know if I was doing it right, but now I think I am. Plus Jim of Good Karma Farm gave me a little bit of pin-drafted roving that I'm gonna try. It's evil of him too, because if I do spin it and like it, I'll buy more :) and I'll probably love it!
The only two things I bought were a skein of Good Karma Farm's Secret Sheep blend yarn (pics later) and a pattern from Springtide Farms that I supposedly have, since I got it at last Spa, but I can't find it. Now before I go madly off to start two new projects, I better go finish some others!
