So, E & I decided to head up today with my Mother in Law who wanted to get some roving for needlefelting Santa Heads. It’s always good to have a purpose for visiting. 🙂 My goal was to visit Spunky Eclectic and Foxfire Fibers as well as every other vendor there. I haven’t taken pictures of my purchases, but I took a few while we were there.
Within 10 minutes of arrival E was holding a baby angora:
And asking if we could take it home.
E was quite partial to the shetland lambs:
Again I was asked if we could bring one home. They were incredibly cute:
The answer was still no. Fortunately the breeder of these particular lambs was not interested in selling.
E also tried her hand at spinning. She waited very patiently to try it out. She listened and learned about staple length:
I picked up a couple more bobbins for my wheel, so she could work on that and she got a drop spindle of her own.
All in all a fun day!

Nothing like catching them young! How lovely that E takes an interest in fibery things.
I can see you have a new spinner starting out there!! Loving those baby lambs! 🙂
It looks like you guys had a great time!
