The never-ending Kaffe Fasset squares are finished and I will be making two cushions. It will be easier to display the cushions than the larger bolster. I love the colors, but just did not enjoy knitting the squares. I prefer stranded color work or intarsia.
|The two pieces are drying and soon will be covering a cushion.|

We went outside to visit the sheep and the horses. the Icelandic wool had a nice sheen in the late afternoon sun and there was a particularly cute dark Shetland lamb.
It was a great day and good to get out and about with fiber-loving friends.
|Rollo leads the way to the studio.|
|Andrea and Rollo|
|Always a good sign!|
|Spindles and other fiber goodies.|
|Rollo helps Andrea get the stove going.|
|The layers of paint tell a story inside the house.|
|Bight colors on a cold winter day.|
|Lovely fiber everywhere!|
|The basket of roving by the window was hard to resist. The stairs lead to the...|
|...studio! The upstairs is newly renovated.|
|On the other side is a cozy spot with lots of light and the perfect place to work and chat.|
|A dream wheel.|
|Downstairs is for drying.|
|Of course no trip is complete without sheep encounters. Icelandic and Shetland sheep, my favorites.|
Over the weekend was the bi-monthly Spin In at Anoka Fiber Works. There was a good crowd and the bunnies were there, too! I brought my Moosie and the roving I got in Stockholm. I like the way the singles plied together in the bottom photo.
|Mary's center pull ball exploded while she was plying.|
|Dawn snuggles one of the visiting bunnies.|
|The bunnies were friendly and so sweet.|
|The fiber matches the hair!|
|Whatever I make with this yarn will be called Rollo.|
