Or should I say spin.Saturday was knit in public day. And I went to Delefield and joined other knitters in the square to show off our knitting. Now I knit in public all the time. I rarely go out with out some knitting project in my purse. I never am a passenger in any vehicle with out my knitting. It doesn’t bother me at all if some one stares or comments on it. I like to knit and I like to be able to work on something while I am waiting for a doctor appointment or visiting with friends. I take my knitting fishing so even if I don’t catch any fish I at least get something done.My hands are rarely idle. I even knit while I read. I will even share how to knit if you are really interested. I am not self conscience about my knitting
It is mesmerizing to watch her fingers turn a pile of scrap wool into lovely yarn so effortlessly. And really she told me these were leftovers she had laying around. And that she was going to turn this scrappy wool into a jumper for one of her daughters. We happily talked about spinning wheels and wool and our wonderful families ; )
She also moderates a ravelry group here — http://www.ravelry.com/groups/handspun-treasures
I wish I had taken a picture of the fantastic crocheted socks she pulled out of her bag to show me. The color was great I think Leanne called it turkish delight. And who knew that you can crochet afterthought heels.
I am really drawn to spinning wheels lately–I gave a spinning wheel to Alice for her B-day. and she is going to give me some lessons when she comes for a visit. I am hoping that we can go to the sheep and wool festival in Jefferson. http://www.wisconsinsheepandwoolfestival.com/ I am pretty excited about learning how to spin and can’t wait for Alice to visit.
*note the yellow wool kind of snuck in there .It isn’t from the bare naked club it is a different project I am working on.
