Ann Arbor Fiber Expo- Meeting your inner alpaca

fiber expoI think, Noah is an alpaca.  He seems to be in love.  He spent most of the afternoon “humming” to alpaca’s.

 We went to the Ann Arbor Fiber Expo on Saturday.   I picked up a few fibery goodies- including some BFL Roving— which nearly spins itself. Nice.

There is also some alpaca yarn in a nice lt brown natural color.

The center pic is Briar Rose Sea Pearl.  Yum. Not pictured is Briar Rose Earth Song.  

The top center- is a new pair of slippers to be felted for Mr.  I’m trying a new pattern- a bit simpler than the FT pattern- will review after felting.

 The Blue is handpaint BFL and Merino blend- earmarked for a special project.  It’s from “Little Acres Farm” In Grayling Mi— sorry no website info on the bus card!  But this is wonderful roving!

The Fiber expo was great.  Not so big as to be totally overwhelming.  Was able to hit every vendor- (I think) As close to rhinebeck as I’ll ever get;)

Noah also loved the angora bunnies—- but no animals came home with us.  Although SOMEONE in the car smelled a bit like an alpaca……

I seriously doubt the “association” would appreciate farm animals.  Just sayin. 

I’m hoping to have some handpun- and hand knit Christmas prezzies complete soon.  😉
