Spent some time in the high country this last week. It is much cooler at 9100 feet than at 5000. We were at my family's cabin which is, as you can see, remote, and very rustic. I like to think of it as camping with a real bed. I took a spindle along for the first time and thoroughly enjoyed getting some high altitude spinning done. I was spinning some lovely Polworth dyed by Chris of Briar Rose Fibers. Her colors are amazing and I couldn't resist getting a picture of fiber and spindle in that glorious summer light.
This little current bush offered to be a prop for the beauty shot. I did come away with the fiber ball full of cranky ants though. So there was some shaking and brushing off and general squealing that went on for a few minutes. In the end, fiber, spinner, current bush and camera came out of it just fine. The ants? Well we can only hope for the best.
