Today’s Fiber News

This is a snapshot of what appears to be a pot holder but is actually a crochet hook holder! It really keeps my hooks in place. I plan to ask Karen (are you reading?) for the pattern. There are a bunch of hookers crocheters in my S & B that might like one.

Other fiber fun – I had my first spinning lesson on Saturday and produced my first wheel-spun yarn. I am very happy with the outcome. I ran into my office and talked to a couple of the Saturday CSRs. One thought I meant with bicycles not a wheel. I had the most wonderful time and tried a total of four spinning wheel -- Ashford Traditional, Ashford Traveler, Ashford Joy and another upright.

The only single treadle was the traditional. I started on that one as the two foot thing was distracting but I ended up on the double treadle Ashford Traveler (which is the one I want). Sandy of Yarns Unlimited taught the class and she was very good at the spinning and the teaching. There were three students, one of which brought her own wheel.
