Treadler’s Party 2012

We had a great Salt Bay Treadler’s holiday party yesterday in Brunswick.  Chris provided an amazing spread of food which was augmented by all the we brought, and then we did a lot of spinning, knitting and crocheting all afternoon while a very soft snow was falling outside.  It was perfect and wonderful!

The tradition at this party is to wrap a gift and then while music plays we pass the gifts around and when Chris’ Santa hat stops singing, whichever gift we have in our hands is ours.  I prefer this to the usual Yankee swap, and we each opened our gift one at a time so we could all enjoy it.  It was lovely!  I am hoping that Christine of Maine Fiber Arts enjoys the cowl I spun, knit and adorned with buttons!  She got it!  And I got a beautiful pair of crocheted fingerless mitts and a bottle of red wine from Crystal the massage therapist!  Lovely all around.  It was a memorable day and I hope that we can manage it every year!

 

(The cowl pattern I found as a free download on Ravelry.  The pattern is by Verbascum and it’s called the Button Row Cowl)
