At one point I was told there were 45 knitters and 6 spinning wheels.. We had fun and got lots of looks.
Wonder who one of those spinners was?? Interesting comments as patrons walked inside to get coffee...(see she's got a sewing machine....um..what???)
I had some issues though, I so learned I am such a newbie! I was sweetly told to read my owner's manual LOL....I have and am ready to replace the drive band as it wasn't plying...I had a temporary fix, and now with more kitchen twine, ready to fix and be on my way....
More knitters...and spinners (my friend fixing my wheel)
Smiling faces, despite knitting a lace wedding skirt! She dropped about 5 stitches and we were worried she'd have to start over, but she fixed it, whew girl!
I did knit on my FLS and woot onto the bottom band finally!
A filled plying bobbin and one has to bring out her
The finished results....not too bad...plenty of room for improvement.
Methinks I don't like spinning mohair though...
Looks like a good time was had by all!
Yeah I'm not sure I would have started with mohair either. But dude, the stuff I first spun was nearly the exact same color!
Wow, I just realized that maybe my comment could have been interpreted to mean that your first attempt sucked--it doesn't! I was thinking more of what a PITA mohair can be to spin!!! Ha ha!
Whoo hooo!! Awesome handspun!!
I stayed home yesterday but I did go knit at Josie's house to watch Harper's Island.
Looks like it was a lot of fun!
Look at you go on the spinning!! So cool and great job!!!
Looks like you gals had a blast this weekend!
Looks like it was a wonderful day! Of course any day knitting and spinning with friends is a good day.
Giggle @ sweetly need to read manual.
You keep spinning woman!! :oD
Woot! @ FLS
Looks like y'all had a great time KIPing in the heat like we did!! ;op
(I haven't read my manual - I could probably stand to learn a thing or two)
And MOHAIR IS EVIL! Sheesh. ;)
You haven't read the manual? What are you, a guy? ;)
Dude, I didn't even know it was WWKIP day, I'm so out of the loop! Looks like you had a great time!
