Another fleece festival has come and gone and girls was this one fun!
Not only did we shop, we (the Fibre Friends and the Codependent Knitters) hosted a tailgate party at lunch time and were able to meet some online friends in person! The rainy weather cleared long enough for us to sit, knit, chat and re-energize for round two of shopping.
I was all about Angora this year and I truly had to stop myself from buying a rabbit. Instead I came home with some Classic Bunny a 60% merino 40% angora blend. It is SO soft. Caroline found me some Angora fibre that I could not pass up, again so so soft. I also bought two skeins of 100% wool from a local Ontario sheep farm, Circle R Livestock that I can't wait to knit with. I had initially been thinking of making a scarf with this wool but a new friend Elise suggested a hat and mitts and that idea seems to have stuck so a hat it will be. A bag of Shetland fleece rounded out my purchases.
For you spinners out there, what is Angora like to spin? Do I have a challenge ahead of me?
