Frog Pond Fiber Frolic

Whoooo-eeee! What a riot! I hope everybody who came over had as good a time as I did. Eleven people braved sub-zero temperatures, blowing snow, and black ice to come to my house yesterday for the first Frog Pond Fiber Frolic - this first of many, I bet!

We ate, we drank hot mulled cider, tea, and a delicious hazelnut coffee that Katy brought. Food - well! Vicki whipped up a great vegetairan chili. Carol brought a salad that had us begging for the recipe. Liz L made a fruit salad, and E! brought a wonderful stollen her mother made. We had great hummus, cheese and crackers, tiny quiches, too.

There was fiber from Elizabeth M and Peggy and Vicki. There were door prizes. Aubrey was a pro at spinning some silk hankies, and Elizabeth M got the hang of spinning silk in an instant, too. Peggy, Suzanne and Svenja came from what seemed the edge of the earth in yesterday's weather - the Laporte area. Needles were flying, wheels were spinning, and I can't wait to do it again.

Me either! I'm excited about March! I think the end of March will probably work. I'm trying to get the painter back over here to finish my house! He painted the kitchen, and I haven't seen him since. I've still got my family room to go and the hallway:) But regardless, it'll be here rain nor shine!

Who cares what the weather is outside when you're snug inside having fun spinning and knitting with friends. I can hardly wait for the next Fiber Frolic!
