Sunday Spinning and Knitting
Who says that meetings in Cyberspace are cold and lacking in human warmth? Yesterday's gathering at Judy's proved that statement wrong. Several bloggers and friends and family met to spin, knit and eat. Laurie drove in from Massachusetts to join Judy, Marisa, Sue and myself to have a quiet afternoon spinning and knitting in the fall sunshine pouring into Judy's home. Marisa and Judy modeled their Ribby Cardigans for us to ohh and ahhh over. Notice the wonderful Lorna's Laces socks that Laurie is wearing while she sips some tea.
After checking out Judy's wonderful orchids and other unpronounceable plants we settled down to our spinning wheels and knitting. Sue worked on her Adagio Shawl in a lovely dk weight blue wool. Marisa spun on her CD Spindle that Sue made for her recently. She created some designer yarn that was thick and thin, but yarn nonetheless. Laurie spun some reddish-purple heavenly fiber that is so soft to the touch. Judy spun some of the Bess fleece that she's been processing. I continued to spin up some laceweight Icelandic wool for a future shawl.
We also discussed why we began blogging and what an interesting world it has opened for us.What a great afternoon!
Last evening I stayed up beyond my bedtime!!! I had to watch part two of The Virgin Queen on PBS. It's a must see. Check out your listings for repeats...it's worth your time!!!
