January Spinsters’ Club

I hosted the Spinsters’ this month, and I’m still amazed that 17 people (and their wheels) fit into our house. Luckily, there were a couple of knitters and one person was using a drop spindle, but I actually had enough chairs for everyone.




I pulled every chair we had into the living room and we all squished ourselves in. To say that it was a tight fit in our 1941 house is an understatement, but from all the laughter and conversations I heard, I don’t think anyone minded much. What a great way to spend a chilly January day — interesting people, fluffs of fiber floating everywhere, and lots of food. This group definitely knows how to cook and we had a seriously wonderful spread. Kristin, those cheese puffs — yum!


(yep, that’s Sam down there, just willing for some crumbs to fall his way)


There also seemed to be a bit of a hat theme going.


Nikol brought extra wheels and they were snatched up quickly. I did my best to send food home with people, but I was glad to keep some of the Girl Scout cookies that Ana brought and Le Petit Ecolier, The Little Schoolboy, cookies (mmm, extra-dark chocolate) that Nancy brought. šŸ™‚

  1. Eeek! That would be like trying to stuff a bunch of wheels, and people here!

    I’m so envious of your spinners group meetings! There’s not many local spinners here, which is a shame! Your posts almost make me want to start my own spinners group here…. but I don’t know where I’d fit in the time! *G*

    You put a smile on our faces too!

  4. Thanks for hosting, I was so inspired when I left! And very full too, thanks to those yummy handmade marshmallows!

    I can’t take any credit for the marshmallows, except for the table to set them on. Jen M is the master mind behind those little temptations!
