Spring Fling Recap...

(From top to bottom, left to right)
The Spring Fling Flyer, Denise was presented with a hand made banner, she cried!  My new book!  Orange Shetland Fiber Porn!  Alpaca, Silk, Mohair Fiber Porn!  Owl Project Bag that was in the mail when I got home.  Buffalo/Merino Fiber PORN!  A view of the "fling"  My friends Cathy, Cathy, Toby and others!!!
What a wonderful weekend that was had by all in Wasilla.  The Spring Fling hosted by Denise Morrison with Fiber N'Ice was a hit!!!  I started my weekend at about 2pm on Friday and drove North to Wasilla.  There I met up with my good friends Zaynab and Toby and quickly dropped our stuff off at Zaynab's Mother in Law, Sonia's, house.  We then traveled to the Best Western Lake Lucille Inn where the Spring Fling was being held.  When you walked into the conference room you were greeted with people feeling alive and ready for a weekend of fiber enjoyment.  There were spinning wheels, fiber, yarn, tables set up for felting of vessels, wall hangings, scarves, painting on woven fabric, carding, combing, etc, etc, etc.  Zaynab was busy all weekend with classes (felting, felting, felting and then some embellishing).  I taught one class on magic loop and fingerless mitts.  I spun up some of my first most extravigent purchase of buffalo (75%) and merino (25%).  I did not do a whole lot of knitting other than my class but I just observed, learned, and visited with old and new friends.  There are stories.  A couple.  I will post about those later.  One involves a little boy named Chance and the other involves a felted scarf donated and found!!!  Stay tuned...
