WEBS had their second Spinning Summit this past weekend and I was lucky and grateful to teach.
It was a mighty gang that gathered to spin with Amy King, Beth Smith and me. We taught three classes each. The attendees somehow picked three out of the nine classes.
I taught Fractal Frolic, Successive Plying, and premiered a new class – Match Game. It’s all about learning to match, project, intention and yarn for a knitting project. I’m teaching this next in a couple of weeks at SAFF.
My students were dedicated and really fast spinners. They had a ton of questions and burned through all of the material and fiber I had for them. I was so very impressed with how focused they were in class with all of WEBS just inches away. There was yoga, a spin-in, games, a great swag bag, and of course shopping.
Every time I walked through the store or warehouse, yarn seemed to jump into my apron pockets. I ended up with a sweater’s worth of yarn for Isobel, yarn for hats, yarn for two projects in the new Mason Dixon Field Guide (patterns by Thea Coleman), and I tiny bit more alpaca to weave scarves.
Yes, I do plan to stop shopping for yarn and start weaving soon. I can hear you thinking.
I hope all of you have been having fun spinning for Spinzilla, or just spinning as fall finally rolls in in North America.
