Last Sunday's Arizona Spinners Spin In

This is nothing more lovely than to get together with a bunch of fellow spinners and knitters for a Spin In.  We all sowed up with our wheels, knitting needles and food at Ravelry DanDoh's house.  She has a lovely front room where she does design work for Universal Yarns as well as creations just for herself.  She just had her first book published too!

So after we all had a bite to eat, we sat down to have  more fun.  Everyone had a different wheel.  I have an Ashford Joy with 2 tredles, one of the others in the group had the same one with a single treadle. Someone else had a drop spindle, then she also used a Journey Wheel which folds up into a wooden box.  You never know what you will see and learn at any Knit, Spin, Crochet or other In.

These ladies are grabbing there stash of Skippy, the alpaca whose fleece I purchased from Janie Swartz of Apache Spirit Alpaca Rescue.  Janie sold it to me at a very low price as long as I shared him with other spinners and talk about her wonderful rescue farm in Southern Arizona.
