Recently a friend came to visit us. Luckily, we just finished fixing up Kay's old room as a fiber & yarn / guest room (a.k.a. The Study).
We (okay really this is Roger's handiwork, however, it is MY blog so I shall take some credit) stripped the room down to studs, added insulation, and put in new doors and windows. The wall treatment is a picture rail, chair rail, and a plaster finish below the chair rail (not shown, but it is a lovely warm tan). The room is the nicest one in the house now complete with a comfy fold out couch (segue back to the guest).
Gretchen spent 5 wonderful days with us. We explored the East Bay, ate yummy food (we pulled out our mad cookin' skillz), and just hung out. She kept me mightily entertained during long hours of fiber and yarn washing.
I know Gretchen via an old and wonderful friend, not via fibery/yarny goodness. However, she is a knitter (we are EVERYWHERE!). I was even able to lure her into the wonderful world of yarn making. We started with a spindle, but she quickly moved on to my Matchless. A natural spinner!
I think I may have learned a new spinning trick from her.
I so enjoyed having a house guest; I'm busily inviting out of town fiber friends. Okay, maybe some non-fibery friends too (maybe I can convert them?!?). You know who you are!
