Field Trip

So here we are...Purling Petals visiting Sallie's Fen in Barrington...Our first "Group Field Trip"
Pic...The Babies..Angel is 7 days old!...Inside the Shop, Cheryl, Pam, Nichole, Cheryl, Marlana, Nicola and Sallie...I am behind the camera!
Missing from our trip were Marlene, Sylvia, Mary Ann and Alice...who will be sorry when they see what they missed!!!!

...We had a ball, saw brand new Babies, lots of Awesome yarn and roving, Sallie gave us a personal tour of the yarn mill...AND...
...I picked up my Girls Spun YARN...OMG...It is SO AWESOME...Sallie did an incredable job of spinning my fiber into lucious 3 ply dk wt yarn. The Jacob/Angora, once washed, is heavier than the Shetland. What a halo!! I started knitting with it that night!! The class I teach in Salem started a sampler scarf on Tuesday, I had no intensions of making one...Guess what?! That is exactly what I am making...with alternating stripes...Blend(Josie,Bonnie,Gracie) for 4" then switch off to Harriett for 4" then back to the Blend and so on. It looks great but FEELS...can't be described, you HAVE to feel it for yourself!!! Stop by the shop and I'll let you "Fondle" my scarf and yarn!!

For those interested...The skeins are 250yds @ $25 each, there are 6 skeins of each color available as we speak. This Saturday/Sunday, Oct 11 and 12, I am vending at Fiber Studio and intend to bring my yarns with me...I do not know what I will come home with...if you really want any, I would suggest stopping by this week...Or seek me out at Fiber Studio during the Wool Arts Tour this weekend...Until next time...Keep Those Needles Clicking!!
