My new Friends

Last night was awesome!
I went to the Black Sheep Spinners Guild meeting last night at Carol's Hidden Valley Farm & Woolen Mill. Ann, the woman from the school knitting field trip, wasn't able to be there last night but she called meover the weekendand told me hat I should go. I'm so glad that I did.

I met Marianne, Marilyn, Carol, and two other women who's names I can't remember (sorry ladies!) They sat and spun while they talked and held a "sort of" business meeting. I got to see a few different wheels, and learned a little bit about how they run - this should help me before my first spinning class on Feb. 10th. Only 8 days!

YIPPEE! I knew it would come quick, but I'm still amazed that it's only 8 days away!

These women were not only good spinners, but also accomplished knitters. I can't wait until next month's meeting. Maybe I will be able to show them what I have learned (I get to rent the wheel from class for a month).

They liked my finished Latvian mitten and tried it on. I am pleased with how it turned out, even with some mistakes (pictures to come).

Tonight I plan to enjoy the warm weather by walking to the store for toilet paper, and then knit while watching the "State of the Union" address.

    You must be excited that your spinning class is getting so close! Can't wait to see pics of the mittens.
