Day 3 of weaving and spinning at Saori Sants Cruz
Learning a new weaving tecnique and learning beaming on today.
Maggie came to spin with us wearing her new pointer brand overalls.
....and bringing me a gift of punis ( ginned carded cotton rolls to spin) from India.
maggie spun while Sue and I beamed on her wound warp.
and we tosted to friendships with Champagne
Then sue and I spent some time spining for our TDF team on ravelry ( spinn every day that the tour de france is going )
Sue taught me very cool spinning techniques and brought some of her amazing hand dyed fiber as gifts. fed ex brought my new louet s10 double treadle wheel it went together in 15 minutes with only 2 bolts! i love this wheel etsy store louet wheel sue loved spinning on it while she was showing me "bobbles, and capture" .
This is what I finished for the daily spinning.
The beautiful pink and lavender banner sue wove( we did a swap earlier this year.)
We are headed off to Henery Cowel redwood state park for a redwood loop walk at dusk.
Back at the hotel sue's feet are proof we did indeed walk the trail!
