Fair

Yesterday my sister came over to watch Mom so I could go spend the day doing spinning demonstrations at the fair. Can you guess what town?



I have no idea what it actually was. I didn't really want to know. Pieces of it dunked in batter and fried? Pieces of it mixed with cheese curds and batter fried? They were also offering Spamburgers. I declined and continued on my way to the Dairy Association's shake truck. Yum, strawberry shake!

This is the grand sum of spinning I got done.

It is the gray llama with streaks of purple and blue roving shown in the previous post. It amazes me how it spins up into such a steel blue color. I like it. This is destined to be a pair of socks once I get it finished.

The day ended with this.

It was a good day.

Were you in Austin? Ick. Spam deep fried sounds disgusting. The yarn that you've spun is beautiful though.

What a glorious sky and beautiful yarn!

I never did like SPAM and, yes, I do remember eating it. And, no, I don't intend to ever eat it again regardless of anything done to it.

Great pictures.
