Dear ones, CLICK These two blank narrow boxes for the photos... For some reason they did not come out.
I went over the Champlain Valley Fairgrounds for the VERMONT Sheep and Wool festival and guess what??? For the first time in my life I entered a spinning contest. The Novelty yarn category is what I entered and I won First place for my skein in the Novelty division. It is made from Dorset wool & Bombyx Silk & Angelina Fiber. I have carded what you see by hand about 6 times,I will be winning a wonderful felted bracelet as a PRIZE! ( I had a peek! will post pics later)
I won third place for another skein, a 2 ply , one is mettalic. also in this Novelty Yarn division. Dorset/Suffolk Vermont wool and Mettalic fiber,(With the mettalic yarns) I renamed both skeins so have to post the New Names when I get the skeins home. I forgot to put them up for sale!
BTW I make artistic well spinning hand spindles and traveling hand spindles ( small enough to spin in a car...) I love to spin fiber ( right now Llama Cloud is my favorite of the week!) I spin and ply by hand spindle as my ashford wheel is need of surgery
. See a few photos of spindles on my etsy store , Hopefully will open by end of September!
I am also on Ravelry under halalsilks.
