In the Spirt of the Ewes

Green Fairyhare yarn from Kimmet Croft Fiber
I've been reading about the arrivals of this year's lambs via some blogs I follow.  The photos, descriptions and season are bringing me back to my country upbringing.  In addition to everything turning green, I think of the Alpaca farm where I learned my spinning and weaving skills (and later demonstrated them at events).  I think of alpacas and sheep alike prancing in their pastures, playing around in the warmer weather.  I think of my spinning wheel and the spinning en plein air that is about to begin.

Lucky for me the Madison Area Knitters Guild Knit In was this weekend.  Events, especially those involving people with similar fiber/textile interests always spark creativity for me.  Um and some purchasing to support the addiction, as you can see.
Yarn in progress.
Yarn in the making.  It never ceases to amaze me how yarn can look so much different from the original roving, as seen here.  Roving purchased from Happy Hands.
Yarn I quickly spun from a roving by Fairy Yarnmother.
-I'm also super excited about this web publication: Knit Circus.
-I'd Join the Madison Area Knitters Guild if I didn't work Monday evenings.  Their meetings sound like a lot of fun.  Who wouldn't like a burst of energy from creative people once-a-month?
