Last weekend, the Southern Highland Craft Guild held Fiber Day, which included demonstrations of all sorts of fiber-related goodness, including the animals the fibers start from: bunnies, sheep, alpaca, and silkworms! These little guys (and gals) are only a week old.
The best part for me was talking to some folks about my drop spindle. I haven’t touched it since the baby was born, and today is her 18-month “birthday,” so that’s been a while! Partly I got confused about what happens now that I have all this wool wound up on the spindle. It’s always easier to figure these things out when you have someone to explain them to you.
