Back on April 30, I finished my second spinning project! I did not have time to post about it before I left for Maryland Sheep and Wool, so I am getting to it now. I finished spinning 8 ounces of the pin-drafted roving I got from Ohio Valley Fibers at The Fiber Event in Greencastle. I started spinning this fiber while I was at The Florida Sheep, Wool, and Herding Dog Festival, and in my post about that event, I included a progress photo.
I don’t go to a lot of Fiber Events. As far as I know, there are only two (now three, but I’ll get to that) fiber events that take place near me: Distaff Days in early January and The Florida Fiber In in mid-September. I have not made it to Distaff Days yet because I’m often away for the holidays the first weekend of January. I have been to The Florida Fiber In twice. The third event is the Florida Sheep, Wool, and Herding Dog Festival, which is a new event, held for the third time this year. I have not been to that event before, because I did not learn about it until after the second time it was held.
This year is an exception to the few fiber events pattern. I am actually attending fiber events three weekends in a row. The Fiber Event in Greencastle, Indiana was the first, held April 18 & 19. Second is the Florida Sheep, Wool, and Herding Dog Festival held April 25-27. Third is Maryland Sheep and Wool on May 3 & 4.
