I won this basket of goodies from the raffle at the Whidbey Island Spin-In on Saturday. On Saturday, I won both a door prize (a “handle” for my ball winder in cocobolo and padauk) and the raffle. My friend, Karen, walked away with both raffle prizes on Sunday, along with the door prize on Saturday. We had quite the bounty. My basket contains 3 skeins of yarn, shetland roving, finger roving, a big ball of handpainted fiber, the navajo spindle, and a large bar of dark chocolate. Yum!
165 yards of lace weight yarn that I spun with my new Watson Wheel. I spun this over the course of the weekend as part of my “get to know Marie” spinning. I have no idea what the fiber is because I just dug into my spinning basket for something, anything, and something that I was likely to finish over the course of the weekend. It’s a longhaired something. BFL? I split it in approximate half, lengthwise, and spun them up separately before plying the 2 bobbins together.
