Bluegrass Spinners Retreat

It has been quite a while since I have posted due to work and life in general. Seems that with all my jobs I barely have a spare moment these days. In case you don't know, outside of LunabudKnits, I am also a Webdesigner/Photographer, Landlord and caretaker to my sweet little Granny.

I did manage to clear out a bit of time so that I could attend the Bluegrass Spinners Retreat. And Boy, Oh Boy! Did I ever have fun. How could I not have fun when you know I just had to bring along the cute little S17 I recently finished painting with the fun little sheepy and the Louet Victoria incase I wanted to switch to another project midstream! I also had several knitting projects on hand too:)


Picture time.

What we were taking pictures of was a bit of a tangle:)

Spin, Span, Spun!

Knit and Spin!

Yummie Roving!

12 ounces of yarn I finished during that week end. On the left is 4 ounces of the BFL I bought while at the retreat. On the right is 8 ounces of odds 'n' ends I had carded into batts but did not particularly care for, so I spun them all together. Keep an eye out for my next post which will be about the finished project with it.

Pretty, pretty yuck batts!

Sylvia brought some of her BFL roving to sell and wouldn't you know it, I went home with ALL of it! It is from her sheep which she raises in Central KY. Just beautiful stuff!

Knit Leaves..

Mmmmm.... BFL & Silk Pencil Roving!



More Singles......

The yarn previously tangled while plying:) Definitely worth the trouble of de-tangling!

Some ones stash likes to go on trips with her!

Gorgeous yarn!

More stash!

Finished yarn hanging to dry by the fire:)

We all had a fabulous time. I did unfortunately miss out on a few of the spinners as we were all having such a good time that the last thing on my mind was snapping pics. Take my word for it, there was an abundance of good food, great stories, fabulous weather and wonderful friends gathered together to share it all!

Other Fun Facts..................

I taught myself to knit by watching a woman while on a flight from Scotland to the USA in 1996.

I taught myself how to spin yarn Feb 15th, 2007. I think I've done fairly well:)

'Lunabud' is a combination of two dogs' names I was loved by, Buddy and Luna:)
