Spinning on WKIP Day
June 13th was World Knit in Public Day but in East Berlin, Pennsylvania it was the Annual Spin-In at the Mannings. It is hard to resist the chance to spend a day in the country, when the weather is beautiful, and fiber is involved.
With chairs set up in the shade in view of a small river and groups of 4Hers spinning, My friend Martha and I knit for several hours, broken up by a couple of trips into the Mannings' shop. What could be a nicer way to spend a summer day - sheep, spinning, wheels, knitting, and even some looms were set up under the trees and along side the river. There was a couple processing and spinning flax, a carding station to design your own batt, even sheep shearing.
