Great Basin Fiber Arts Fair

Kami and I went to Great Basin Fiber Arts fair this weekend.  We both got new drop spindles from Greensleeves Spindles, and lots of roving!

Kami and I dyed some scarfs, and I also did some socks too.  They are still in the dye bath and I get to rinse them shortly so no pictures yet.

After our class Eric came and got us and we went to his parents place.  Where we did  phott shoot of our loot and had some dinner until Jon came and picked up Kami.
