Summer officially begun in the US. I will not let the heat stop me from spinning and knitting like there is no tomorrow. At least, that is my dream. What are your plans for the weekend?
A visit to Northwoods Farm
No vacation is complete without a fiber souvenir. On our recent trip to South Carolina, my husband I visited Northwoods Farm Fiber Company. I knew that seeing just one Alpaca would make my day. I was not prepared for seeing 30+ Alpacas, meeting a wonderful group of knitters or bringing home a spinning wheel. What??
The farm has a wonderful shop. Full of a good variety of yarns and fiber. I chose a heavenly chocolate roving as my first souvenir. No one had to twist my arm for my second purchase: a new to me Louet spinning wheel. Julia is now my second wheel. I got it for less than half the retail price--with all the bobbins, lazy kate and about a pound of mystery yet soft as butter fiber. I am truly, madly in love with the wheel!
