Be careful what you wish for

Several years ago I wished I lived somewhere there was a group of people I could knit with on a regular basis. I wished I could find a workshop/class locally where I could learn to spin.

Well now four years later thanks to Ravelry I have a group of friends who I sit and knit with all the time. Take last week for example we were sit in front of a woodburning stove, drinking red wine, eating gooey chocolate cake straight out of the oven, chatting, laughing and knitting.

This weekend I hosted a spindle spinning workshop. There were eleven of us, two teachers, three husbands and an adorable toddler. We sat in my lounge and tired with various amounts of success to spin. Some had a go and decided pretty quickly spinning wasn't for them, some decided they are definitely wheel spinners, spindle spinners or both. There was a yummy pot luck lunch - I love that somehow when everyone brings something you never have too many deserts or too many quiches - it always seems to work out right.

Just be careful what you wish for you never know where you'll end up.
