Whew! Spring Yarn School has come and gone!
I went as a helper again, along with Ana and Jen M, and we were the dish washing, fiber rinsing, towel gathering, table busing, chicken rangling, airport shuttling, laundry doing, Yarn Zombies — all in all, we made a good team. There were two teachers, Adrian and Jen S and then, the grand Poo-Baa, Nikol, who made the whole thing roll. This spring, there were twenty students, many of whom were attendees for a second and even third time. Everyone was great — we all had our wheels in a giant circle and we would laugh and spin when we weren’t in the dye lab, carding or eating. Jan absolutely kept everyone in stitches and Rachel laughed till she fell out of her chair. There was amazing food (thank you Nikol — when are you going to put out a cookbook?!), wonderfully dyed fiber, lots of spinning and just plain fun.
If you’ve never been to Yarn School, I would HIGHLY recommend it — you’ll leave exhausted & revived!
