February 1, 2009, 6 to 8 pm, Beginner or Wannabee spinners/knitters are invited to bring your spinning wheel or knitting to Spinnakees Farm. We will have a demonstration of partially, clipping a German Angora Rabbit, spinning its fiber and providing kits ($20) for you to try yourself. We are hoping to also have a demo on Continental Knitting and needle felting.
We are planning another meeting for Beginners February 8 same time and an advanced group February 15 with a demo of double drafting and another partial clip of one of my German Angora Rabbits. I'd like to see what kind of interest there is in the Gentle Giants and share a fact sheet and a simple knitted Mobias Angora/Wool headband pattern as part of my kit, which will also include a wool/mohair blend of roving, Angora Roving and raw Angora. I have the yarn spun, which is one strand Angora and one strand wool/mohair and hope to have the headband completed by Sunday to show what it looks like. Hope you can make it! My number is listed on www.spinnakeesfarm.com. Betty
