I didn’t get to mention this in Monday’s post, but over the weekend, I had the chance to visit Parson’s Prairie Farm with a friend. Every year, the Parsons host a farm day. Last year, we visited and purchased fleece from Bambam, a gorgeous, black suri alpaca who was lodging with the Parsons. This year, I managed to steer clear of buying any more raw fiber, but trust me, I didn’t leave empty handed. I came home with a gorgeous headband, a new stuffed alpaca for our collection, and some secret Christmas gifts for family. Score one for me for not adding to my enormous stash and one for supporting small, local farms.
This was the perfect, relaxing start to Spinzilla this year! I’m on team DM Fibers’ Old-School Spinners again this year. Please check out the team and cheer everyone on! No surprise, I’ve been spinning both Monday and Tuesday already. We got through our team braid and started in on the stash we gained from Meralgia. Tomorrow, I’ll be traveling and I plan to take my spindles with me to keep up the pace!
