I've been dyeing Bluefaced Leicester roving in preparation for the Great Lakes Fiber Show next weekend, May 26&27. This is its 23rd year, held in Wooster, OH at the fairgrounds. Each year it gets bigger and better. Besides several buildings full of fibery goodness, there is a sheep show and sale, and an angora rabbit show. Besides the roving, sold in one ounce "flowers", I will also have handspun angora yarns. Look for me in Building 39, just inside the door closest to the food court. Oh, and don't miss having a roasted lamb sandwich. Its worth attending just for that!
