When friends get together...magic happens!

Some people are loners...others love their dogs. Me?...I'm a 'friends' person. I love my friends...they are a big part of my life. Your children, your partner, your parents, your brothers and sisters....your God or other beliefs...these are the cogs in the gearbox of your life. Your friends...your friends are the oil that makes everything run sweetly and beautiful. Today I spent the day with my dear friend, Tye...which happens quite a bit. Out came the spinning wheel (and some interesting toys for P & D), some good coffee and on came the inspiration. I felt like trying something new. I have taken some elements of a Plied Snowy style yarn and some elements of our Slubby yarn methods and morphed them...creating this amazing hank....a half twist Slubby. I could make this in any colour...and I can't wait to see how it knits up! (Should be devine) Kathryn, a gal pal who is pretty new to the whole fibre art 'thang' and I were having a lovely relaxing time at our place recently...similar deal....P & D were busy outside, the coffee and cake we dragged out the dyes and dyepot!! The one thing I love about Kathryn is her enthusiasm. It's funny how a little of enthusiasm can be catching and it can refuel the creative think tank. I'm so glad we caught up for a coffee, Kathryn, and even gladder that we busted out some dyes and rovings. I didn't dream we were about to make something sooooo beautiful!! What is it about good women, good coffee, a few laughs? Does it somehow boost the creative processess?? hehe...Maybe!

I've split this mass of rovings into 2 equal lots of 80 gms each. As you can see I've run one through as a Slubby. I'm going to let Kathryn decide what to do with her half...hehe!! Ohhhhh..I love that yarn!

Thanks to all my all know who your all are...thanks to all who log into Sheepychic Bloggings. Remember: Strangers are only friends that you haven't met yet. All the best, Ruth xx
