Gail, had her appendix out on Wednesday, called me Friday and said she didn't think she was going to make it, and then as mentioned called and showed up today. I think she really wanted that Goodie Bag. LOL
Tiggywinkleknits showed a number of small children and adults how to use a drop spindle. I had fun getting a couple of twentysomething guys how to spin - she has 'clown' fluff in BRIGHT orange and green they really seemed to get a kick out of it. One of them had enough that he made a wristband out of his yarn.
Melissa had arrived after I finally sat down and got some actual spinning done, so no pictures of her. Michele wanted a picture of it, so you can see over on her blog. Much better than the WWKiP day event where I never knit a stitch! LOL Others that missed my camera were Tracy with her Lendrum and Robyn with her drop spindle. Sara had her Kiwi and was sitting next to Angela or flitting about checking out what others were doing. Not sure but there was also a trip to Carissa's car to check out alpaca fleeces. (Many of the linked people have/or will have blog posts about the event and possibly more pictures!)
We did end with some sunshine, just a little later than expected. Next weekend is OFFF, so I'm sure you'll see some of these same faces in a post for that event. It's fun to have such a large group of people to have a good time with.
I brought all my gear home. Gathered up the Transverse Scarf and headed to the 'other' downtown - Portland to Knit-Purl so I could give them their store sample. Sandy Kay was laughing and said she had just come upstairs from sending me an email asking how it was going. LOL Sandy Kay was very pleased with the scarf and offered me a choice of my next project. I saw that Kernel was one of them and while not one I planned to make for myself, I was more than willing to play with some of their Handmaiden to knit it up for them. It's a pretty red with silk and linen. It should be fun to knit up!
I'm now in search of a spider or web stitch pattern to make into wristwarmers for Bailey. She plans to wear her "Spider Geisha" outfit again for Halloween. I thought she needed wristwarmers to complete the outfit.
