On my needles and spinning wheel: I've been working on a bear for the Mother Bear Project, some Baker's Dozen Squares and my sock yarn blanket. I've also tried plying the Picperfec singles into a 4 ply and it's just what I want!
At Wonderwool I met up with guzzisue from the Spinnotts (click here for more info about them) and ambermoggie at the Ravelry Meet-up area. I also spotted Jess in the finger-crocheted hat (sorry, can't remember your Rav name!) teaching Angie and Penny how to spin:
I spotted more historic mill bobbins at The Threshing Barn and bought one.
I also bought some fibre from Freyalyn's Fibres and some felted jewellery making cupkits from Bryncurl Workshops.
I also saw some sheep! First some Shetlands...
... then a gorgeous Leicester Longwool...
...and finally some Manx Loaghtan (but I only photographed the ram, not the two ewes).
Music: Rondopolska by Barry Philips, from the album Tråd, available from Magnatune.
