I started this post last April right after the event...but, now, it is six and a half months later and I'm just finding time to post about it! Better late than never, as my husband says. I never liked that saying, at least when he was saying it, but now I kind of like it. Here is my post:
Will I ever find the time to work on my Bale? Yes! I made time Saturday by attending the Whidbey Weavers Guild 43rd Annual Spin-in held at the Oak Harbor High School on Whidbey Island, WA. This popular event draws a large crowd from neighboring states and Canada. It's fun to be surrounded by fiber, wheels, spindles, and people doing the same thing you love to do.
Of course, I decided ahead of time: I wasn't spending any money!
My rough draft ends here. The reason why I still want to finish this post is this:
Dave Yocum crafts beautiful wooden Yarn Bowls and I wanted others to know about them. (I must confess: I bought one!) Three days before this event, I sold unwanted yarns and books at my knitting guild's rummage sale so I decided to treat myself to something special. (I didn't realize someone would be selling yarn bowls!) Here is Dave's website. Other fun sights:
Ooooooooo...I've always wanted a sheepskin...to put on my rocking chair. Thirty years ago, the skins were out of my price range and now they are REALLY out of my range. Oh, well. I'll have to save up!
Thank you, Whidbey Weavers Guild for a fun event!
