Tuesday night knitting

We had a really good time last night. Let's see...Becca, Sherry, Tata, Jenny, Ila, Nicole, Ruth, Ashley and Theresa, who brought a friend, where all there. Olivia came with me, school will be starting next week so she won't be able to come very often anymore. Becca brought her spinning wheel and a drop spindle. Tata has shown some interest and those spinners are more than happy to spread spinning love.

Olivia loves to watch them spin, Becca let her have a turn. She was enjoying herself so much.

Several of us looked up to see that she had accidentally spun her hair into the yarn.
It was a sight to see. She was a little embarrassed, but then they all starting fessing up that they had done the same thing. Nicole said that her daughter had gotten too close once and her hair became one with the yarn.
Here she is with her first yarn.

Becca is helping Tata get started on a drop spindle.

She sent her home with one of her drop spindles and some roving.
I wonder if Tata new what she was getting herself into when she joined our little group.
Ashley is giving Becca's wheel a whirl.
Olivia is holding Mr. Dangles. Ruth knit him as a first birthday present for Sam. He will love it!

Two elephants and a lion just hangin out.
No Tuesday night knitting post is complete without an appearance by the most adorable Sam. We will miss Sam and Ruth, school starts in a few days so they won't be able to join us every week.


  1. OH SAM! I just love that little stinker! I like Mr. Dangles too. Did she design that pattern?
    LOOK at all the spinning! Fun FUn!

  2. I'm gonna miss y'all so much! It is always sad when summer comes to a close...

    However, there is this place called Ravelry (I'm not sure if you've EVER heard of it...) & I'll be able to keep up with y'all somewhat.
