It is very rare that I spend less then an hour to drive to a fiber expo, sometime only a half hour if it is the somewhat local spinning group that does shows a few times a year. This weekend there was the Fiber Expo at the Washtenaw County Fairgrounds, Yippie! Only and 8 minute drive, it is almost as fast as running to the market! I wish I could have justified spending more money on the soft, lovely fibers, but I was able to get some goodies that made me Very Happy.
Earlier this year Lynn and I were at a fiber show and she asked a vendor what the Lucet was and received an impromptu lesson. I found some itty bitty teeny tiny ones and thought they would be a wonderful accessory for some of the Peculiar Poppets, they do know how to knit after all, so why not making I-cords with the lucet. Hee hee, aren't they cute:
My main objective was to hunt down Emily from Bricolage Studios for an orifus hook and soft goodness. I found her busy carding new batts and picked one up with the hook, along with some soft textures to add to the spinning, Oooooooo, Aaaaaaaaaa :
I think I am going to play a bit more with my spinning before I grab onto the Bricolage goodness, I want to do the fibers justice in the end result.
Well I am off to the wheel to spin!!!
