A Busy Fiber Week

Last week was a busy one with fiber related stuff.
Thursday night was my Ocean State Knitting Guild meeting where we had an ornament swap.
Saturday was my RI Spinners Guild meeting where we had plying and needlefelting demos.
Sunday was spent with a group of other spinning friends. Lots of laughter and fun from everyone, including a "visiting" husband. He came in to say hi and stayed, talking and telling us stories.
Monday was a rode trip to a mill in Woonsocket to pick up a huge pile of free cones of yarns. Ann R. had already generously given some to several groups and guilds. She isn't taking orders any longer, but, invited any of us who wanted to go up to the mill to help ourselves. I came home with some more of the mohair blend, wool, cotton, polymide blend, and something else. My loom and needles will be put to good use with these fibers. The dyes will be used on some of the white mohair or cotton as well.
Tuesday was knit night at Sue's.
Wednesday was the official beginning of another fiber arts group I belong to.
This evening, Thursday, will be spent washing some more fleece and maybe dyeing some fiber as I do the laundry.

My mail delivery has been busy too. One of my favorite Etsy shops has been having a cleaning event. I've got some lovely goodies to spin and dye. So far 2 boxes have come in and there should be 1 more. I need to stay away from her shop now. lol

That's all my news for now. Happy spinning and knitting.
