Today’s meet-up at my friend Cindy’s farm in Parker, Texas was so lovely. Cindy was a wonderful host and loads of fun people came with their knitting and spinning wheels.

Cindy had name tags and home made drop spindles for everyone.

I brought yarn and did a little dyeing demo.

Everyone was so sweet and I was especially excited to meet Susan (on the right) and Mary (not pictured, darn it!). I feel like I’ve known both of them forever!

Laurie and Joann (please forgive me if I’m not getting the spellings right!) were wonderful spinners and just as sweet as they could be. Laurie’s going to do some spinning for us for the shop.

Anna brought the yarn she dyed on Thursday at our Dyeing Workshop. Absolutely lovely.

Sierra had a great time gathering eggs from Cindy’s laying hens.

Cindy and the other spinners worked hard to teach me to use a drop spindle- they each deserve a medal for patience.

I kind of got the hang of it by the time I had to leave and Cindy sent me home with a spindle and a bag of roving to play with till I go home. I just might become a spinner yet.

Thanks to Suzy for taking all the pics while I visited and did my demo. Somehow neither of us manage to get a picture of our lovely hostess or her handsome husband. 

All told it was a storybook day. Thanks so much to Cindy and Family for having us!
