St. Distaff's Day Acquisitions

Yesterday was the St. Distaff's Day spin-in hosted by the NwRSA. They had many vendors and I spent all my cash on fiber, raffle tickets, and a Fricke flick carder. I bought 1 lb of Blue Face Leicester top, 4 oz of mohair, 3 oz of silk, and 4 oz of hemp. I had never seen hemp for sale so I took the opportunity to get some. I promptly came home and blended some of the silk with Tarhgee that I had dyed gun metal blue. It added so much shine that it looked synthetic! I met Jo Fricke and liked her flick carder so much that I bought one even though I already own an Ashford flick carder. I didn't know the Fricke's live here in Washington, but they do. They are up in Granite Falls.

I finished another skein of my dyed roving.
