Knitting Goddesses Guild Night

Wednesday night was the Knitting Goddesses guild meeting. We were lucky to have our local spinning and weaving group come out to give us lots of info on different fibres for spinning. They had samples of different wool, camel, musk ox, alpaca fibres and I think there was even some dog hair that had been spun. They talked about dyeing wool and the process of preparing a fleece for spinning and of course gave a great demonstration on how to spin our own wool. Then for anyone interested, there was plenty of time to try out one of the spinning wheels.

Thanks ladies for a fun night!
