Los Angeles is surrounded by foot hills and mountains. When it's cold and it rains here the surrounding mountains get snow. Today was a pretty day for snow viewing. Warm sunny morning and snow on the mountains to make the scenery nice. For those of you who live in the snow country, this is as close as I like to get.
Woman's Work The First 20,000 Years. She talked about spinning and weaving as far back as 30,000 years BC. Yes that far back. Drop spindles and weaving looms in prehistoric days. She shared a wealth of research and her life's love. Passion for the history of fiber arts when it was a way of life not just for relaxation.
You know I love the picture with the authors. Dr Barber gladly autographed her books for us and spoke to us one on one answering all of our fiber questions.
The size of the guild was quite impressive but it draws people from all over Southern California.They use a meeting hall in a Lutheran Church that easily handles the crowd. Two large semi-circles with multiple rows of chairs across the back.
All ages and so many different wheel types everywhere you look.
Lot's of socializing before and after the meeting. About 40 people were here today.
I'm using a wheel that is just a temperary situation but I will disclose more when my wheel arrives Monday *crossing fingers*
No news on the Wheel and the scarf is less than a foot from completion.
I also picked up a new book today. Sensual knits.
Beautiful patterns in real woman sizes too. Lots of luxury yarns used in this book. They even have socks made from Posh Lucia yarn.
