There are less shows during the summer, that leaves more time for spinning. Angora rabbits are multiple purpose animals, they are the kings and queens in the shows when in show coats, when they retire, their wool is useful in making beautiful yarn and products until the end. Here are two skeins of pastel colored yarn made by Betty in the past few days.
Betty is known for making lumpy bumpy art yarns but once a while she also makes the regular two ply smooth yarn. Here are two skeins of fawn two-ply made from her two fawn does: Fawnella and Fawnna. Both are grand champions in retirement, Fawnella is 5-1/2 years old, mother of Multi Best In Show winners Zeeva, Zoey, Franchesca, Fawntasy and Donnica; Fawnna is 7 years old. They make contribution in showing, in making future champions or providing beautiful wool for spinning. Where else can one find better breeds than the Angoras.

Making Miniature Drop Spindles
Chris O says,
"I am making a bunch of 9" drop spindles to use as swap gifts for our fiber group's Christmas in July cookout. Everyone brings as many little gifts as there are guests and puts one of each in every guest's Christmas stocking (paper bag, really). Fifteen guests, fifteen gifts, preferably fiber related."
|I think I will put a drop of glue on the top and bottom discs at the join so they won't move in use.|
|Nine inches total in length, big enough to use.|
|They work! I am putting them in a plastic bag with a small bit of fiber and calling it a glove compartment emergency spinning kit. Actually, they would pack well for a trip if the discs are not on the chopstick yet but assembled at destination.|
|Kind of silly but a cute trinket gift that actually works.|
|Completed emergency spinning kit just in case there is a spinning urge attack.|
