Happy Knit in Public Day! I was going to head over to Greenlake today to knit with a group of Seattle knitters, but I realized early on this morning that I wasn’t up for meeting a bunch of strangers. I don’t know, maybe subconsciously I knew I would be around a ton of people tonight at the graduation party I’m going to, and the bit of myself that’s introverted wanted to spend the morning alone. Ah, me.

So I went to the coffee shop to knit instead.

Afterwards, I went to the Weaving Works to drool over some yarn, and I picked up a little somethin’ somethin’ for myself. I’ve been good about not spending any money on yarn since I moved, and I decided to reward myself. 😉 One of the employees there was expertly drop spinning away, and I got to have a nice chat with her about it. I bought a drop spindle and some roving a while back to give it a shot, and my first attempt was absolutely horrid. (I won’t even post a picture here, it was that bad.) But after watching this lady spin away, I was inspired and decided to give it another shot.


We’ll see how it goes!
