...and W also stands for...

wow.

As in, check out this architecture:





which sits incongruously across the street from this:


Yep, that's where I was taking a class last week. Way cool.

I did not make it to another yarn shop before I left, but did find a sushi place in town, so it's all good.

I have to be back there again for another class, week after next, and found out that Susan's Fiber Shop, a mere 45-minute drive away, is having a spinning retreat the weekend following my class, so I'm going to extend my visit through the weekend, and attend the retreat! She's going to loan me a wheel, since I don't yet own one, (and even if I did, I wouldn't be lugging it on planes with me).

Can't wait!

Closer to home, but on the same subject, I think I may attend this weekend's local spinning guild meeting -- it will be my first time. They're having a silent auction, which should be interesting. I look forward to meeting some other local spinners!

I have lots more things to blog about, but will try to post more tomorrow, (I hope).

Ta!

Wow indeed! I'm so glad you found a spinning class in the area as a reward for a long week. I look forward to hearing what wheel(s) you use...
