Paddling, Packing and Spinning

It was a busy busy weekend. The big Nanaimo Dragon Boat Festival was on, which had 78 dragon boat teams competing in races all weekend. We had four races, two on Saturday and two on Sunday. It was busy busy busy with me dashing back home between races to do laundry in preparation for packing and clean the house in preparation for the house sitters. But it was all great fun (the races, not so much the laundry and cleaning).
On top of all this, I was trying to finish a few spinning projects and organize spinning homework and pack up some spinning projects to take with me.

On the spindle: gray Alpaca from Koksilah Farms.
Off the wheel: Romney wool, silk and mohair blend.
Off the wheel: white Alpaca, wool and nylon blend
On the wheel: white Suffolk cross wool
In the packed bags: silk hankies, tussah silk roving, and ginned and pima cotton.
