Just a Peek . . . for now

We packed up some freshly-made buttermilk scones with jam


and set off to visit a dear friend.


She had many wonderful things to teach us.


Like this . . .

and this . . .

and this.

It was a very full three-hour visit,
which I will blog about tomorrow
(when I have rested up).

For now I thought you would enJOY
just a little peek.

More to come . . .

Neat! I was just explaining to my younger daughter yesterday about a friend of mine that raises Angora rabbits for their wool so she can spin it into the softest yarn I have ever felt. Looking forward to reading about your adventure!

Spinning! I would love to learn that! The scones look delicious- I am feeling peckish now...

Linda said...

What a tease you are! The scones and jam look so good. I just had my cereal this morning. Sigh.

We have friends who raise angora (?) rabbits, and she spins to make the yarn. They live a long way away, so I don't know if she knits it or (K)not. (giggle, giggle)

Ahhh...I've not sat at my spinning wheel in way too long. I did just buy another spinning teaching video to help me perfect or really know what I'm doing. But I have knit two sweaters from wool I spun and dyed.

I used to demonstrate at our Western Stock Show and some other events. That's where I got the most yarn done. Men were the ones most fascinated, sometimes clocking me ... like what "miles per hour"? ;^) And loving the "machine".

Leonardo da Vinci drew the first fly wheel in one of his books (what the yarn's loading onto in the last picture.

It's so relaxing!
