Spinning and Knitting together

Hello dear friends,

Just a few pictures to share with you a wonderful afternoon spent this weekend with some lovely people.

Rosário from dona maria hosted a Spinning and Knitting Meeting at the wonderful, gorgeous Café Saudade in beautiful Sintra. It was a nice, cozy and friendly afternoon spent around wheels and spindles, knitting needles and handspun yarn and hand dyed rovings :) 

Rosário talking to 2 ladies making fantastic socks with Zauberballs in the cutest stripped pattern (a must, I have to learn to knit socks with these two ladies!) and her spinning wheel standing in the foreground

Sporting the prettiest handmade sweaters and cardigans

Even a little one joined us and tried to give the wheel a spin!

Two young ladies giving their first steps at spinning with a drop spindle

And in the mean time the inevitable cup of tea (lemon grass for me, please) and yummy scones with butter.

Even got to meet personally two other nice ladies I already knew from their blogs, Sofia (SofiAlgarvia) and Ana (mãos de sapo & pés de pato) from whom I already bought some hand dyed yarns :)

Definitely... a treat to myself, a day to repeat, and I will certainly try to join those ladies at their weekly saturday afternoon knitting meetings in Lisbon :)

Hope you had a great weekend too!
