This weekend is the Great Basin Fiber Arts Fair. I have gone every year for the last 4 years and have completely enjoyed myself each time. Even the year it rained and was very cold. For those who wonder what in the heck kind of fiber I’m talking about, I mean the stuff you knit with. I’m not talking about dietary fiber…that would be a boring fair!
I spin my own yarn. I own a Kromski Sonata spinning wheel that I love. She (yes she) is lovely and spins like a dream. I move her all over the house and even to the back porch to spin. She folds up and packs away neatly into a travel bag and I take her places with me, including work and the mall, to spin. I love her greatly.
I buy lovely fiber from lots of different places.
In other words, I’m a geek with a hobby. It’s just not a new hobby. It’s one that’s been around for thousands of years.
I love to spin.
