Stash busting

Now that my time outside in the garden is slowing down, I have more time to spin, knit and weave. I have been going through my fiber  to see what i can create with what I have. I found some dyed roving and gray mohair and carded batts to spin up in a chunky yarn. I am also finishing a sock and a mitten to complete it's mate. I am warping up my HD studio loom with 8/2 cotton to weave some more towels for Christmas gifts.

A Wool Gathering

We had a beautiful weekend for a fiber festival. Young's Dairy does a very good job pulling this event off. A very family oriented time for everyone, including the vendors like myself. Of course my favorite thing to do is to watch the herding demo, but talking to people all over the area is fun too! I took a little survey and learned that people come from far and near like, Tennessee and just down the road in Kettering. This was my first time setting up at this festival with my friend Cathy Moore. Our little vendor space was packed,  all with products from our own farms and processed in Ohio. Thanks all for supporting our small farm businesses.
