Last night I tweeted that knit night just became ten times more awesome. Why do you ask? Well it all starts with the fact that I have the coolest knit night people ever -- my roommate Andrea who we are teaching to knit and our friend Nicole who has been knitting longer than I have. We meet at the greatest yogurt shop ever and have a blast and the woman who manages the place seems to really enjoy having us there in the corner. But last night, oh last night, Nicole brought a bag of goodies for me.
A spindle! And fiber! And how-to info!
I've started to toy with the idea of learning to spindle spin (there's no way I can afford a wheel, but a spindle looks like fun), and I may have mentioned this in front of Nicole last week. Last night she scurried out to her car in the middle of a sentence and came back in with a spindle that she had bought but decided that she did not like. Well who am I to turn down new toys. Especially when they're free! I tried to read the instructions so that I could get started, but I'm having an ADD day and so it'll have to wait until the next time I'm working a late shift and feel a little calmer. But in the meantime it is tons of fun to look at, and if anyone has any resource suggestions for a new knitter please let me know.
