Stages 16-21, riding into paris...

what a trip! there are many things i love about this challenge, but the one i love the most..... spinning every day. whatever wheel is needed is at the ready. my majacraft gets carted out to the deck, front porch, wherever i am. the little tray with the hansen gets put in the trunk, set on the kitchen counter, put by the pool. my family and friends have come to expect me spinning at every opportunity, so it seems weird to stop. i also dig finding out other spinners have been quietly pedaling along with me (hey vicki & anne marie). it's like we've become a little family, connected by the fiber.
i didn't post as regularly as i wanted to. some days it was just the repetition of alpaca/corriedale and who needed to see that? i did spend a day with amythefibergoddess dying yarn. stunning.....
get yourself to the 20th annual Fingerlakes Fiber Festival to see these beauties in person! the list of classes and special events is on the website... what a stellar line up!
here's another completed skein, merino from fuzzybunnyyarns.....
i had intended to ply this banding the colors together. opps. still a pretty skein.
and all the pretty skeins ...
yep, made it to paris without mishap! that alpaca/corriedale is soooooo soft! it matched up perfectly when i put it together....
headed to the stash, i'll have to decide what they need to be!
