I got some gorgeous batts from our pal Leslie of Spinning Spinderellas. I need to make up some sample yarns for the Art Yarn class I'm teaching in April at the DFW Fiber Fest. This is a blast. I tend to spin very practical yarn most of the time, but art yarn techniques give me the chance to let my hair down and go crazy.

Check out the DFW Fiber Fest, April 8-10 in Grapevine, TX if you're in the area. Not only classes, but vendors, and all your yarnie pals. On Saturday I'll be teaching a beginning drop spindle class, geared toward knitters who want to begin making their own yarns, and also the art yarn class for spinners who want to add a bit of pizazz to their repertoire. I hear there are a few openings left in both classes, but as the weekend approaches, those may fill up.
