How did you spend WWSIP Day?
Did you spin? Did you knit? Did you do anything related to Fiber Arts?
You watched football snuggled up in the blanket "Aunt Fanny " crocheted for you?
Well, that marginally counts as Fiber Arts. You are using that Fiber Arts Treasure.
Well, I spent my day at my favorite yarn shop spinning with friends both new and old. Your Local Yarn Shop (YLYS) here in Battle Creek, opened their doors and said, "Welcome, Spinners!" We had a great variety of wheels and fibers being spun. Drop Spindles were scattered amongst the spinners too.
Argh! It's the Circle of Life: Raise the Alpaca, Shear the Alpaca, Process the Alpaca, Spin the Alpaca, Knit the Alpaca then Wear the Alpaca go to the barn to visit said Alpaca and just get a snort because obviously said Alpaca wears the fiber so much better than you can ever create it and apparently wears hay better too.
Oh, besides spinning and knitting another fiber arts craft has entered the farm...weaving! I bought a lap loom at Fiber Fest this year and the Bears and I have been busy testing it out. Unfortunately it doesn't take a WonderWhyGal, a Sister Bear and a Brother Bear to use a lap loom so two of us would supervise which usually ended up with a Grumpy Bear. tehehe, Sister Bear just realized that I call her daddy, Grumpy Bear. Brother Bear has wanted to learn how to weave and the eye doctor actually said it would be good for his eyes so...win/win. I think our first creation is turning out pretty awesome.
Well, gotta get back to my wheel or...my knitting...or, oh you know I'm going to weave!
