Oh What a Batt Can Do!

We were recently at the Michigan Fiber Fiesta with all of our fibery goodies and I ran into a lady that I had met last fall. We first met at the Fiber Festival we were at last October. It was such a cold damp weekend that we didn't leave our booth much, but I did wander out once and met Diana of Spin-a-Web. She has such fun things!

Well, last fall I bought one of her rovings and she bought one of my very first alpaca batts. I loved that batt colorway and had spun several myself.

None of what I had spun compared to what Diana did with that batt.

When I arrived at the fiber fiesta 2 weeks ago, Diana took one look at me and scampered off. I can honestly say I was a little baffled. She came back really quick though with this amazing shawl.

My one little batt (it was somewhere between 2.5 and 3 ozs.) had turned into a couple hundred yards and she knit this little shawl with yarn to spare. I was just in awe. It was such a lovely treat to see one of my batts all grown up.

If any of you have a project you've made from something you've purchased from us, I'd love to see it!
