On Sunday Bee (my best non-fibre crafting friend) called crafternoon at her house. I walked my spinning wheel over - it's about two kilometers. Its lucky I live in a "funky" suburb. I got a few smiles, but no strange looks. I spent a couple of hours spinning up the second half of my sock yarn. It was nice to have other crafty people around, although the others were sewing. The rest of the long weekend was pretty crafty too. I spun, knit on Leon's jumper and dyed a merino beanie - I gave it to Leon last winter to wear under his bike helmet, and he pointed out that it is pink. I would have called it red, but a closer look revealed: hot pink. I tried to dye it brown, but it ended up a lovely shade of moroon.
