Okay, I hope you've learned something more about me. Anita, I'm not doing anymore tags! At least for a while.

If you are still reading, here's a picture of the fiber I bought this past weekend at the Fiber Fair at Montpelier. I am taking pictures of the fiber separately and will tell you a little about it, the fiber, as the days go by. I am spinning the fiber in the middle on the Ashford Traditional. I haven't spun on that wheel in a while and I thought it was about time to get her out, dust her off, and give her a good workout. It is spinning up nicely and I'll have pictures on the next post. I'm too lazy this morning to go get the camera and download the pictures right now. I have to have this fiber spun by the first of December, because I have promised to loan the Traditional to a lady who meets with us Wednesday nights for a beginning spinning class. We are going to get her hooked on the spinning also!

Happy knitting & spinning.

Sorry Laura! It technically isn't the same tag. The other one was what you were doing 20 yrs, 10, yrs, 5 yrs, etc. I won't tag you again... for awhile.
