Hail, Hail

the gang is all here once again. Fall seems to fire up the meeting schedule, along with cooler mornings and (this week) the bright full moon. We had spinning:

This is BJ, who teaches our local spinning and weaving classes, both at her studio and at our LYS. We had show and tell, but the only thing I remembered to take a photo of is Jan's 3 ply handspun cotton sample, knitted, with handspun cotton bamboo blend (the blue):

I think there were about 25 of us, coming and going, for this meeting at the library community room. It takes a while for a gathering to become part of the routine: the spinning group met for several years as a very small core group before suddenly taking off this year with an average group of 20 spinners, knitters and happy fiber people:

Barbara Sue also started a new knitting gathering at the local co-op this week. Tuesday night a group of about 12 of us met in the cafe for the first time. It is always nice to see knitters gather, and there were new (to me) people to meet. We plan to continue: 6 pm the third Tuesday of the month, in the cafe at the 'patch.

This coming week the guild meeting starts up again with a program I have been looking forward to: Kristine Vejar, from a Verb for Keeping Warm, will talk about her travels in India with the Rabari people, and natural dyeing. 7pm in the Madelyn Helling room at the Nevada County Library, if you are in the area.

Most of my friends are fiber people, not surprising since fiberwork is sort of an obsession of mine. Maybe I should get out more? There are plenty of opportunities now that my favorite time of the year has rolled around once again.

Most of my friends are fiber people too, but on top of that interest, they're smart, funny, savy and just comfortable to be with - friends.
