If you click on the pictures they get bigger. I wish I had gotten a better picture of some of Adrian's yarns. Especially that handspun. Oh my, she's a master. If you have some of it, then you already know.
Our booth was so alluring that a neighbor HAD to have some of our stuff. We walked in on Sunday to seeing her spinning up a bunch of our fibers. She paid of course and asked if we minded. I love it when the fiber is too much to resist. Must. Have. More. Fiber.
In fact it was too much for me too. Adrian and I did a little swap.
I'm spinning it as a striping sport weight single. I think this would knit nicely into a lacy multi-directional scarf. This stuff is Merino silk and it's so very nice.
I did get one other thing at the Frolic. Dan had a Kromski harp (32 inch size of course) that he didn't want anymore. So he brought it in for me to buy. How sweet is that? Tuesday I did my first warp by myself and set it up. I figured I'd just use some scrap acrylic and play until the yarn I ordered arrived.
Once the safety orange acrylic hit that loom, GirlBeast couldn't resist it. It was like some siren call to her. She hovered and pestered until I had it all set to go. By the time it was all loaded, I wanted nothing more to do with this stuff.
There she is in all her glory, fully enjoying the weaving of safety orange and hot nasty pink. Such a retina searing combination. Perfect for a scarf for her, if she finishes it before I cut it off so I can work on something less eye damaging.
