Yesterday was World Wide Spin in Public Day!

Joy, Su and I met at Osbourne House at 10am. Su had to leave at lunchtime, but Jane and Rachael joined us in her place.

I took Eric along so that I could finish the Yarn Yard BFL I was working on and I'm still getting used to the Sonata - although a day of spinning on it would've done the trick!

We had a great day, beautiful weather and lots of interest! It didn't matter their age, most people stopped and had a look, quite a few asked questions and some even took pictures!

Unfortunately our local paper couldn't make it to the event, but have asked Joy to send them a photograph. She took this one:

We even got a chance to go into the house where we could view a painting of Queen Victoria knitting and we saw her own spinning wheel and skein winder. Unfortunately, we're not allowed to take photos inside the house, so I can't show you!

On a side note, my Kromski Sonata has told me it's name - he is Edward and his sheep is Esmerelda!
