Saturday Spinning

homespun yarn

I spent yesterday at the Huntersville Heritage festival, demonstrating spinning and knitting. It was a warm summer day, and there was a very nice turnout. We've been there when the first weekend in October was miserable and cold, too. It would have been a great opportunity for interesting photographs, but all I brought home were some small skeins of this purple yarn I spun from locally grown wool. Burdock is the theme of this wool. I picked burdock heads out of it as I washed it, as I dyed it, and as I carded it. I also pick out burdock bits as I spin and knit with it.
