Whirlwind Weeks

The last few weeks have been busy; hence my not being able to post. I was able to visit Rhinebeck for the weekend and partake of the fiber-filled atmosphere with friends and enjoy the much longed for goodies. I particularly enjoyed the Eveready Diner between visits to the fairgrounds!
The end of last week I enjoyed visiting the Botanical Gardens at Roger Williams Park. I was captivated by the Koi pond and of course the lush vegetation that has happily helped to soothe the loss of spring and summer flora.Today I was able to celebrate Halloween at a local Spin In hosted by Sue D at RI Handspun. We had a good time spinning, knitting and gabbing. Paula was spinning some Halloween Fiber that was delightful. Judy spun some lovely blue singles and plyed them. Carol R spun some bouncy fiber on her wheel. DebbieR spun her Witches Brew. Carol M worked on a lovely lap robe using Starmore's Maidenhair pattern. Sue began a sweet pink baby hat. I spun some Pumpkin Cappuccino from CJ Kopec fiber that fit the autumn Halloween theme. The lighting is poor and does not show the truly warm autumn hues to best advantage. I'll have to think about what to make with the four ounces I am spinning.

The Koi photos and the Pumpkin Cappuccino fiber are beautiful!
Looks like you are spinning the autumnal woods!

Sounds like you had a Happy Halloween ~ full of treats ;-)

Those are such lovely colors.
Your yarn is beautiful.

Pumpkin cappucino. What a perfect name for that fiber. I love CJ Kopec. I knit my favorite shawl from her stuff.

Sorry I missed the Halloween Spin. Busy Halloween for us that day.

Four ounces is more than enough for a hat, and depending on how you're spnning it, could make a pair of socks. I love the colors.

Sounds like it was a good time at the spin-in. And isn't the Eveready fun?

Saturday was fun. :)

Our hotel was right down the road from the Eveready Diner, and we had supper there on Friday evening during our Rhinebeck weekend. Terrific place.

I have the same fiber in my stash . (pumpkin cappuccino). I wonder when I'll get to it.
