That's my Hitchhiker wheel. I'm spinning Fractal Roving in "Midnight Periwinkle". On my chair arms are two new colourways I tried last weekend. "Rubies" - which was a test for some yarn my friend Sonja wants me to dye for her to make a Swirl Jacket (Rubies and Ribbons from Knit Swirl by Sandra McIver) and "Monet" which is pale grey greens with purples and just a little rust.
Sonja and her 5 year old came a bit later. She liked the colours. And her son loved being in the water with the girls.
I got a whole bobbin spun, then realized I had only brought one bobbin. So I got a good bit of knitting in, too.
I also attracted two sets of onlookers curious enough to actually come ask what I was doing.
It was so nice, and other friends so wanted to join us that we will do it again soon.
