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. 🙂
