Spinning at the Winery

Today I spent a lovely afternoon with LeftCoastKnitter and Ceallach spinning at a local winery. This is an annual event sponsored by Ceallach's Spinning Guild. It was a perfect day, not too hot, not too cold. We staked out a perfect shady spot under a large tree and enjoyed the pot luck, a nice Merlot and, of course, spinning.

Ceallach & LCK (smiling even tho' I spilled a glass of wine all over one of her camping chairs)

Yarns and rovings for sale

And of course, lots of food!

Did you know that hand spun yarn grows on the vines in California?

I even won one of the raffle prizes!! 3/4 pound of Cormo roving!!

Hmm...maybe if I drink more wine I could spin better?
What a cool idea for a get together. Glad you had fun!
