Last night at our spinning group there were 9 of us! We're definitely going to have to find another place to use for our get-togethers. We'll have to do some investigating.
Here is the fibre I bought at The Gathering on Saturday.
These 70% lambswool/30% silk batts were from Harvest Hastings. They're the same colourway, I just flipped the one over to the other side. Some of the fibres are still rather curly. I'm looking forward to sampling them.
BTW, I'm loving my Woolee Winder (pictured above). The flyer on my Ashford Joy had hooks on both sides in the exact same place rather than one side off-set from the other. How useless is that? The Woolee Winder has a sliding flyer hook that slides back and forth, thus evening out how the yarn is wound onto the custom-made bobbins. The Woolee Winder comes with one bobbin and additional ones can be purchased as the regular bobbins don't work with it. There is a little cog at the end of the bobbin that meshes with a cog on the flyer which enables the flyer hook to slide back and forth. I ordered 2 extra bobbins at the time of purchase. I honestly think I've been spinning and plying faster and more consistently since using my Woolee Winder. Robert and Nathan Lee hand make Woolee Winders for every commercial make of wheel.
I'm looking forward to getting my hands on the new Regia Kristin Nicholas Garden Effects sock yarn.
