We meet, weekly, (Tuesdays, from about 6PM till (it used be 9..but since our meeting place is open later, it goes till it ends) at Manducatis Rustica
46-35 Vernon Blvd (between 47th Avenue and 46th Road)—and we always welcome newcomers.
The process for the swap –bring a goody bag, get a number, pick a goody bag (and perhaps have the goody ‘stolen’ by another member) –created swaps, and laughter--as well as the request ooh’s and aah’s as the contents of the bags were disclosed.
There was the heavy one (a trick!) but I suggested it was paint (to hand paint yarn for your self!) –and the light one --silk is so much lighter than wool—and the yarns in the various goody bags were top heavy with silk! And wonderful books, too.
I pick (and managed to keep!) a lovely bag of Rowen Summer Tweed (70% silk/30% cotton) in a beautiful shade of deep salmon.. (5 skeins of it! Enough for a summery shell.) This picture doesn’t do justice to the deep color it really is.
Isn’t it pretty?
(just what I need—MORE yarn!)
