Getting ready to go to Gibson's

This summer is going so quickly. I can't believe it is nearly time for Gibson's Landing Fibre Arts Festival.
I have been working hard labeling yarn and getting everything ready. Tonight a friend was over and we braided a bag of fibre from Sweatermaker. It was fun and hard to resist sitting down and spinning 1 or 2 of these fleeces. They are so beautiful. My niece also helped braid the fibre and she was bitten by the spinning bug. I think she will be a future spinner. She got the feel of spinning pretty quickly and her 1st yarn was not too bad.
I also got in the Noro Silk Garden Sock yarn just in time for Gibson's. It is really nice and soft. It is thicker than the Noro Kureyon sock yarn. Of course I had to cast on a pair of socks. I think I will make a pair in every colour.
I will put this yarn on the internet when I come back from Gibson's

Oh, I wish, wish, wish, I could come............ I really WANT some of the fibre. Maybe you'll have to send some back for me with Lynne. :-)))
