Knitter's Frolic 2010

We had our usual good time this year at the Knitter's Frolic - nothing like being surrounded by knitters to make you feel good! We did very well with the yarn we brought and I want to extend a heartfelt thank you to everyone who stopped by our booth - it was wonderful to see old friends and meet new friends! Now it's time to rest up for Kitchener - should take me about that long to recover.
There's some new spinning wheels on their way to Pick Up Sticks. SpinOlution's Travelling Bee. The first picture shows it folded and the second picture shows it opened. It opens with 2 simple clicks and then off you go, spinning to your heart's content. They are so portable that they actually fit the criteria for airline carry on baggage.

Now why would I want to spin? Because you can make original yarn using Tanis Fiber Arts Superwash Merino in Lemongrass - I suspect it's close to fingering but haven't measured it yet.
Here's my next spinning project I found this fiber at the Frolic and just had to have it - look for these yarns to make an appearance at Pick Up Sticks in the future!
