The first Dublin spinning meet up happened last Sunday. The plan is that spinners will meet on the balcony at the Powerscourt Centre in Dublin's city centre on the last Sunday of every month. I loaded up the car with Gloria the wheel and set off. I walked in to see wheels, spindles, fibre, biscuits and many happy spinners.
Above you can see Thread Bear's wheel Daisy in action. Also Handspunheart was there with her Louet wheel, Louie. There were many spindle spinners including the ladies from Playing With Fibre, Hooks Law, She Knit Up That Ball, Chic With Stix and others. Many of them were dab hands and a few people were just starting out on the road to spinning obsession. It was lovely to sit and spin with people who understand the obsession. I also had some lovely coffee and an oreo cupcake which pretty much made it into a perfect day.
Strangely enough with all the chatting and admiring other peoples fibre and wheels I managed to spin up the BFL fibre I dyed with kool-aid. It was agreed that due to the colours it should be called Wibbly Wobbly Wonder after the ice-cream. It's a single, sport weight and about 60 metres. Not sure what it wants to be yet but it's pretty.
