Sounds like you had a great time! I think I'm going to try to go next year. It's FAR from Springfield, but not too bad of a drive from my parent's house.


What a great adventure! Ahh, Mutton Busting. I know of this phenomenon. I have a little cousin who was the Mutton Busting Champion at some rodeo. She made all of the little boys cry.

So Daughter caught the fiber bug too? Soon she will be saying, "Mom, can I have a spinning wheel?"

As for the Alpaca Adventure, I think it sounds more like a theme park instead of an investment. Thinks of it as: Alpaca Adventure Land, a theme park for fiber lovers. Hey now that would be a great investment!

Happy Spindling!


I give up. What's your address, I'll mail it to you. But really, ONE day, we'll meet, right? ;)


Do you know how long it took me to drop-spindle without dropping the spindle every 15 seconds? Longer than it took your daughter, that's how long. What a talented kid.

Under no circumstances should you leave me alone in a room with your new roving.


Yay! More people I know with drop spindles!

Wow! The colors in that last roving really woke me up this morning! Drop spindles, heeey!


Heyyyy! I'm jealous. My snot ball of extraordinary magnitude kept me from attending the festival. Looks like you had fun!


Wow! Looks like fun was had by all! Tempting...but I am still holding out on the spinning thing. Not easy!


That sounded like a great way to spend the day. I am jelious of the roving and the spinning (hehe). I think it would be fun to do.


I was contemplating going to Bethel this weekend! I was really excited to see your pics - looks like the drop spindling is going great for both of you, and now you have a new hobby!


Hey - How's the drop spindling coming along (are you getting the dogs out of the petunias!) and how many vendors were at Bethel this year? I went four years ago and there weren't that many. I go to Estes Park Wool Market in June every year. It is awesome. Forgot about Bethel this year. Oh well. That's the story of my life anymore.
