Slivering Suckertash Batman

Kpow! Took receipt of my first kilo of soft merino sliver recently as part of a dyeing workshop. Even though I have never spun anything more than for 1 minute trying out a friend's spindle, I can see I will become addicted to it. I also joined the Fibrecrafters FNQ Inc group in Cairns so I'm bound to get lots of mentoring as I go. The group I met were very friendly and I loved using the Earth Palette cold water dyes. And somehow this makes up for not going to Bendigo - at least until I heard how much fun it all was!! I will try for next year, cheap fares to Melbourne willing.
