One of my spinning friends, Robina, died unexpectedly today. I am very sad and distressed for her family and close friends. I spent quite some time talking to another member of my spinners and handweavers guild on the phone this afternoon, she is shattered.
I keep thinking of that beautiful mohair/wool laceweight she was spinning, planning to knit some beautiful lace. And the Fair Isle she started last year.
Our guild is tiny, with about 12 members, and they have all made me feel so welcome, which is amazing considering I fly and and fly out during my lunch break on Wednesdays.
Robina was particularly friendly and showed interest in my projects, it was only the other day she picked me up regarding the hem of the jumper I’m knitting, advising me to knit it up rather than sewing later… it turned out so neat and I’m really pleased she took the time and effort to let me know.
