I’ve been talking about Tour de Fleece all week, non-stop. This isn’t a BAD thing, but there HAVE been other things happening around here! *grin*
Rob’s been having car issues, so we haven’t seen each other as much lately. [I *hate* that.] So for our date day on Tuesday, I drove up to Hanover PA to pick him up and find something to do on not much money. What that ended up being was a visit to The Mannings, and a trip to Lake Marburg in Codorus State Park.
I didn’t take pics at The Mannings on this trip, but I did take the time to look around at *everything* there, even more than usual, with much wish-listing and drooling. 😀 I did splurge on a Clemes and Clemes 4 oz bottom whorl spindle, because I didn’t have one that heavy, and I loved that it was bottom whorl too. Many artistic yarns are promised forthcoming!
The lake was really lovely – clear skies and waters, ducks and geese with babies… and practically 100% humidity and SUPER hot. We just couldn’t stay there for too long, but I did get some photos for future inspiration. [Those boats! Such great colors!]
Rob sent me home with a big bag of his hand crafted bead spindles with polymer clay whorls – we’re calling them “Super Ball” bead spindles, because that’s exactly what they look like. More color, SO fun. Between those and the eyeball spindles, we have the most eclectic mix of spinning tools!
And the last bit of color for this post – these AMAZING Cormo wool locks that Kate of Babester Arts gave to me, then I dyed in watercolor tones of beauty. I can’t wait to spin these up!
