The weekend of the June Spinsters’ gathering, Nikol invited Marilyn, Jen and myself out to Harveyville a day early to spend some time in the dye lab as a thank-you for being helpers at the Spring Yarn School. Nikol snapped these first two pictures of us and she graciously let me snag them from her.
Of course, Nikol’s cooking alone would have been worth the trip! Below are some of the commercial spun yarns I dyed and some of the fiber as well. It was so nice just having the three of us, each with plenty of crock pots and microwaves to use. Nikol was humming away making batts for her Etsy shop and the cats periodically wander in to see what we were up to. As always, there was plenty of chocolate and coffee to go around.
Keep in mind, this isn’t everything I dyed — my cup (and house) runneth over with fiber!
For Sunday’s Spinsters’, Marta and Ed were gracious and had up over to Wildcat Alpaca’s where we sat and spun in their gazebo and ate the homemade strawberry and banana ice cream Marta made for us. Hanging out with this group has spoiled me!!!!!! Interesting people, fiber, lots of critters and good food ALWAYS abound with this crew!
