Hand spun hand knit horse puppetThe theme of the Montana Association of Weavers and Spinners (MAWS) 2012 Conference  held in Missoula, MT, was a Carousel of Color. For our guild booth we each chose to create something inspired by one the the carousel ponies in Missoula's carousel.  I chose Dispatch, a dappled gray Pony Express Pony (left).  

I wanted to use Montana-grown fibers for this Montana conference, and I had a lovely silver Cormo top, a deep black merino, and a medium-grey merino that fit the bill. I happily spun the soft fibers with a fairly firm twist so he would survive the loving play of so-far-non-existant-grandchildren.
