day one

I got to start the new year in the best way: a spin-in at a local indie coffee roaster's coffee house. It's a beautifully eclectic place. Everyone brought food to share.

We gathered around the wood stove.

We spun, spindled, knitted, talked, plied, told stories,

and had a visit from a Christmas kitty named Marley.

Laurie's cat and the fiber she was spinning had quite the color resemblance...

cashmere and silk, being spun into laceweight...yum!

There may have been a glass of bubbly, too... a great time was had by all.
How did you start the new year? I hope it involved some kind of fiber activity!


  1. Looks like a cozy and fun gathering. Amazing how much the kitty and fiber resemble each other!

  2. oh my gosh! the SMELL! the smell must have been amazing! looks like a perfect way to ring in the New Year. Happy New Year, Karin :) oooxx

    i want to know more about that wooden crate, the wooden drawers/cubby and of course the chicken painting behind the kitty :)

  3. I think any place that has a big wood stove like that is a great for fiber gathering. The highlight of my New Year's Day was a 2-hour hike that I had to drag myself through cause I was so out of shape. Yours sounds so much more fun!

  4. The page opened and I read the subject line as "Dye one" at first glance. Looks like a good time was had by all.

  5. What fun! Where were you? BTW sent Molly's deposit in. We are DONE. She is very excited and has been checking the syllabus for all of the Art courses. Are we on for Thursday? Happy New Year. Cathy

  6. Gretchen loves these get togethers. When I see the pictures and hear your descriptions I can see why!


Thank you for leaving a comment! It means the world to me.
