Last weekend I attended and taught at Shepherd’s Harvest Sheep and Wool Festival in
That’s just east of The Twin Cities, Lake Elmo, Minnesota Minneapolis and . (An
aside: I learned that folks in St.
Paul refer to them
as just “The Cities”.) Minnesota
I had a blast. I got lots of fiber, ate some good food (I really liked the Walleye chunks), and thoroughly enjoyed teaching. My workshop was “Creating the Yarn You Want”. There were 12 folks in attendance.
Here’s the big surprise: each person in the workshop had a different wheel. Including me. No kidding. Here’s a blurry picture (I turned off the flash and had a hard time holding the camera still):
And here’s the list of wheels:
Lendrum folding wheel
Majacraft Tiny Tim
Babe upright wheel
Spinolution Mach III
This has never happened to me before. I want to go back to Shepherd’s Harvest next year to see what new surprise is in store for me.
