I also brought spinning fuel - which for me means tea, cookies (all whole-grain & mostly organic), and homemade peach lambic beer.
Lots of people were there (at least it seemed like it - way more than the past two spin-offs!), but of course I ended up being the last one to leave. Eventually it got down to just Steph and me, and that's when things got a little crazy. Before that, I was just calmly spinning away, and then after everyone else left, we ended up experimenting and carding (Steph has THREE carders!) and making a big mess and inventing the best thing ever. Here is the only picture I took at the spin-off, in the midst of our carding frenzy:
That's an electric carder! I was endlessly entertained just watching it turn - especially because it spits out a steady rain of glittery angelina and fiber bits off the back as it cards.
I just listed two new novelty skeins that I spun up at the spin-off - I love them both!
I came home from Steph's (at like 1 in the morning) with 3 pounds of bamboo, so I'll have more bamboo yarns in the next few weeks. I'm still thinking about starting up a patchwork yarn-of-the-month club - but I prooobably will. Eventually.
