New Home for My Roving
So, after the meeting on my way home, I was thinking about what I could find in the basement. Also, I want to keep my roving in one place - see, compulsive again... And I remembered we had an old laundry basket. PERFECT! Here is the roving in its new home.
And here are the goils from my Saturday group:

You can see my wheel (on the left) - I actually did not knit one single stitch but filled a bobbin with the roving I got from my Secret Pal a week ago. Its colors are very cool - pinks and browns. More pix on that later. In the second picture you can see Ann holding one of Pixie's bobbins. And if you look closely - you can see Pixie's red curls and her cheek at the bottom right corner of the picture. Jenny was hiding next to my wheel. I gave her a quick lesson how to read charts. She wants to find the right pattern to make a wrap from some of the yarn she bought at SAFF.
Looking at the pictures, I noticed how serious all of them look. Believe me - we are usually a fun bunch. I guess I just caught them all thinking about the next stitch in the pattern. :-) Also not in the picture are Elaine - she had to leave early - and Sarala who sat at Jenny's and my table. The sofa corner is getting too small, ha-ha-ha. In total - 14 crocheters, knitters & spinners. And Ann's husband Richard, who throws in interesting stories about his language studies.
On my agenda for today - plying, balling my loot from SAFF and starting a lace project. I am having an itch and I want to do a Kiri. I bought some beautiful Knitpicks Alpaca Cloud (100% Baby Alpaca) a while ago.
