The Big E Fiber Festival

I have already set up my booth at the Big E in West Springfield, Massachusetts. I have new feathered yarns and freeform yarns as well as a new model for the Extreme Lambs Tail hat, since I sold the first one at SAFF. This is the seventh show in a row. I have next weekend at home, but I will be busy shearing yearling and kid does. I will be putting shirts on them and putting them in the barn with a heater for a few weeks. They have some lovely fleeces.

Spinning at Stitches East 2014

Got inspired to spin lamb's tail that are exaggerated today. I have been spinning delicate tails and wondered how huge ones would look. As you look at my wheel turning, you can see the white blur of the tails flying around. I can see an exotic scarf or a bad hair day hat made from it. I am currently spinning a dark version and plan to spin a pink one tomorrow, unless another inspiration hits!
