I have been remiss in reporting on the lovely time Kris and I had at the 2010 Spinning Seminar at '>The Mannings back on June 12. This is an annual event that we just discovered last year. I’m sure the word “spinning” scared me off in earlier years. The format is this: many demonstration/exhibition tables set up on the grass outside the shop, a lunch/snack booth run by the local church ladies, some animals on display, some local 4H groups practicing for Sheep to Shawl contests, and free time for spinning or knitting. There is no charge (unless you buy pie, which we usually do – though this year we went with some good looking chocolate chip cookies, instead).
Here’s my Flickr slideshow of the day. Double click to open it bigger and see the captions, too. Enjoy!
Just in case you don’t watch all the way to the end, I want to show off Kris’s version of the Night Gulls sock. She’s knitting this in a perfectly lovely Cascade Heritage handpaint that is such a great match for the pattern. Doesn’t it look good so far? Now, who wants to knit dog hair?
