It was great! A lot of people, a lot of laughter, a lot of conversation.
Catherine showed some yarn she spun, and worked on a lovely baby sweater with interesting construction.
Jane tried Teresa's miniSpinner, then continued with some yellow/green yarn on her wheel. (The roving seemed similar to Annie's favorite color name: Monkey Farts.)
Charlene had two socks: toe-up, two-at-a-time, magic loop. This sparked a short discussion of favorite ways to knit socks.
Teresa flicked long luxurious Romney locks to be drum carded later.
Shelley spun some gold roving, instead of her when-will-it-ever-be-done brown.
Edie, who finally was able to come join us again, was knitting.
Joan wore a new sweater. The two yarns were a yin/yang pair: one was two plies of color A and one ply of color B, the other was one A and two B. She also was knitting a second sweater in the same pattern.
Lucinda finally spun again, very intense colors in a hand-painted roving - her hand tremor has diminished.
