I had a BLAST

I had so much fun at the "spin-in" today!! OMG, thanks - I mean a HUGE thanks - to Lisa, Rhonda, Karen and Cindy for helping me begin to spin! I actually made some yarn which is now soaking in my sink hanging over my tub to dry. I'll take a picture of it later.

The only bad thing about the day was that my dang camera's battery was about dead so I only took this brief video. It is sooo cool though. BTW, I was told that last month Rhonda spun directly FROM the bunny. Wow... sounds sort of weird doesn't it? This month she is combing the bunny and getting all the loose hair (fur??) bagged up for future spinning. As you will see in the video, Rhonda has already made a scarf from this bunny's fur. (Click here for a better view of the scarf.)

Another gal was spinning wool from her llama. (Sorry, no video - like I said, dang camera battery!)

Oh, and guess what else? While I was there I got to watch the shearing of an alpaca. :) AND I saw a week old cria (baby alpaca).
