SPA 2008

I can sum up SPA 2008 in one word: perfect. See, the great thing about SPA is that it’s all about doing whatever I want. And last weekend I wanted to hang out with my friends, spin, eat, and drink.

I did ’em all last weekend – some of them simultaneously! And I have photographic proof.

Cheryl and Diane spinning on their Rick Reeves’ wheels. I think Diane’s wheel is the cutest wheel I’ve ever seen.

I just love this picture of Julia. I took it at The Jameson Tavern on Saturday night. Twenty of us had dinner there and it was terrific. I’m not doing a link fest but I can tell you that it was a case of rounding up the usual suspects. I’m grateful for every person that was part of this dinner.

I brought my Reeves wheel, too, and spun up a Crosspatch Creations Paint Pot and this “kaleidoscope” roving from Dave. I love how colorful it is. Don’t get all excited – Dave wasn’t there – but spinning his roving made it seem like he was. You know?

It was Lucia’s birthday. We got her a slice of blueberry pie with a candle and we sang. More good times.

It wouldn’t be any fun for me without Blogless Sharon. That’s her on the right, spinning with Martha.

There were wheels everywhere. It’s so great to be among my people.

Does that give you an idea of how perfect it was? I may not have a lot of pictures but they are certainly representative of the good times I had. Next year seems like a long time away!

  1. Wow, all the cool people were there! I would so love to spin! We had a wheel at our meet up last night! We all gathered ’round to watch~I lingered…

  2. I’m glad you had such a fun time. Last night I had a dream in which my husband and I visited a new place. Just as I was fed up and was getting ready to leave, I came upon someone spinning. Weird – or maybe I’m supposed to take it as a hint to start a new hobby. 🙂

  3. Sigh…sighing with envy for all the fun, for seeing all the grrls, for spinning all weekend, and for smelling fiber. It sounds like a perfect time!

  4. It would be fun to have an inventory of the wheels that were there. It was hardly a representation of traveling wheels.

  5. I didn’t take a single picture! I think I was too busy eating. Seems like every time I turned around it was time to eat again.

  6. Those are some big honking wheels to be used for travel wheels! I so missed being there. It sounds as if you had a perfect time.

  7. I’ve never had a better birthday, and I don’t think I’ve ever been sung to by that many people, much less in public. Thank you!

  8. Now I’m starting to miss Madrona. There really was something fun about being in a room with 30 spinners, and 25 different kinds of wheels. Sniff!

  9. You may not have a lot of photos, but the ones you have are great. (I looked at my camera when I got home and it had one photo on it, and I didn’t even take that one!)

  10. I went to a spin-in once and it was great! I just love getting together with other spinners/knitters. It’s one of my favorite things in the world!

  11. Yep, we were all that happy. Still am over here. It was wonderful to spend the weekend spinning next to you. Thought of you all during the Oscars.

  12. Now that I have my wheel, I love hearing about your adventures at SPA even more. It looks and sounds like you had a wonderful time. Thanks for always sharing such great photos of your adventures.

  13. It was great to meet you ‘in the flesh’! And it was also great to talk with Blogless Sharon for a bit. Did you see how ‘your people’ tempted me???

  14. I only wish I was able to make it up for Friday too. Thanks for the decent photo, and I’m in my new favorite shirt bought that day at Eddie Bauer outlet.
