This weekend was the first annual Fibers Fusion Northwest Expo. I was fortuneate enough to be invited to teach Twining and alongside my class was a drop spindle class going on.
This event was a plethora of fluff and color! Definitely more of a spinners world than a knitters world -- but that didn't stop me from finding treasures to purchase!

I found some roving that was a mix of wool and silk in the warmest and richest caramel color that I plan on using on a thrummed vest for myself. I think it will be gorgeous!
Thees fibers came from http://http://www.opulentfibers.com/ out of Portland and I was instantly drawn to her color pallettes.
After the class was over, the class coordinator gave me the most beautiful hank of yarn (pictured below). I was more excited for the unexpected hank of yarn than I was for the check! It was such a warm thing to do and exactly my colors!
You may find your favorite hank at her etsy shop:

I look forward to going back next year - and maybe this time, taking a drop spindle class!
