Spinning at Shuttles, Spindles and Skeins

I had such a great time teaching at Maggie Casey's shop in Boulder that I took almost no pictures.

We had a sugar gliders as guests in class one day. They are so soft and cuddly. 

Apart from teaching I spent some time goofing and talking fiber and weaving with Stephanie Flynn Sokolov. That's her up there at the Fancy Tiger sale table. Maggie took me to the most fantastic restaurants, including the Boulder Teahouse. We even managed to go on a little hike.

I taught for three days, heavy on color. My students were focused, curious and creative.

They spun like the wind, some even knit their samples in the evening after class.

They were the type of group that gave and as much as they took. There was so much fiber knowledge in the room.

But what did I buy, you ask? I bought two more Sonya Philip"s patterns at Fancy Tiger. I bought some 4-H raised cashmere at Maggie's. I  fell down hard on the Shuttles part of Shuttles, Spindles and Skeins, two cones of Harrisville Shetland, four cones of Jaggerspun Zephyr, and four ounces each of four colors of alpaca. I'm feeling it's time to stop dreaming about weaving, and just sit down and weave. I'm starting with scarves, and I'm very excited.

I'll leave you with a moment of Zen from Boulder.
