Fiber Fantasic

Last night at my Renton Knitters group we had all kinds of fiber related activities. We always have people knitting. But last night we also had crochet, loom knitting, spinning, and drum carding.

Here is Charity with her new spinning wheel. She has already made some really lovely yarn. Can anyone say birthday present please? ;)


Angi showed Joann's daughter how to knit. She picked it up really quickly. And she is such a cutie.


Joann brought her drum carder and carded several batts from fiber she had also brought.


Charity was the lucky receipent of this batt.


Angi also did some spinning with a drop spindle.

Don't show this picture to Angi's in-laws! They may get the wrong idea! This lovely baby has been gracing our presence for about a month now since her mother started attending our group.

I also scored some free yarn last night from Erica. She has a friend who took up knitting and, gasp, decided she didn't like it after spending several hundred dollars on yarn. Erica brought what she didn't want to the group. I got a total of 3 skeins of Lorna's Laces Shepherd Worsted. This one is called Douglas Fir.

These two are called Tahoe and seem to coordinate with the Douglas Fir.

Now I have to figure out what I'm going to knit with them. Of course, I have other yarn in my stash waiting to be knit, so it might be awhile before I get to these beauties!
