They came. They Knitted. Their Hats were Mad. Here are the Bridge Knitting Guild of beautiful San Francisco, CA, working furiously on their self-designed hats.
Know what I love about knitters? They are always doing something beautiful, even when they aren't trying to. This is the setup one of my students gave himself to design a motif with. No one could fail with colors like that; and the matching pencils to draw with...pure magic. The resulting hat was, too.
After class, we toured the Castro neighborhood, where I took in the sights (and smells!).
Here is my best friend's Best Friend. Her name is Lilly, and she is one rock star poochie.
I got a spinning lesson, and I'm pleased to report that both my string and my nerves held together. Sorry, Knitting: you have to move over and make room for my new love: Making Yarn. It is so much fun that I am in danger of giving up sleep to make more time for it.
Then I went home, where my sweet little family were waiting for me, as well as my own spinning wheel, with whom I now am friends.
I decorated it with a favorite passage. You can do the same if you visit here They had never made a spinning wheel quote before, but I think it looks great!
