Hangin' with the Fiberistas

Wednesday is our usual spinning day. Most every week a dozen of us, give or take a half a dozen, gather at my church for several hours of fiber projects, punctuated by lunch. Sometimes, one of us is celebrating a birthday, and in that case, we have birthday cards and cake during our lunch break. Today was a birthday lunch, with an awesome chocolate bundt cake. Oh yeah.

Another thing we do every week is share the projects that have come off of our needles or our wheels. I captured a little snippet of today's "show and tell" session:

These ladies are all so talented and dear. We have added people to our group over the years - some stay and some move on. Today we had one of the largest turnouts in a long time. But the casual, "come as you are, for as long as you can" attitude is one of the best parts of belonging to this group. Many of us have forged lifelong friendships, and we're always ready to drop everything and run if someone has a need.

A good number of these ladies also come to the Third Saturday Spin/Knit In here at the farm, so if you're not available during the week, you know there's a warm welcome waiting for you at Jacob's Reward on a Saturday morning.

What is it about knitting and spinning that invite us into community and warm fellowship? Whatever it is, I'll have a double scoop, please.

    Wow! Look at all my fiber friends that I haven't seen since the end of summer! I miss you all!
