Spinning, Weaving, Knitting. Where Does the Time Go?




Things are still going well on the weight loss front. If this keeps up I will hopefully be staving off the diabetes that runs rampant in my family. I'll also be able to better keep up with the three year old kid.

Thanks for all the nice comments about my weaving. I did order some silk for my next Huck Lace project and I wound the warp for an interim project while I wait for the silk. My husband said I could weave him a scarf. I asked him what color he wanted and he said whatever I have the most of in the store. Hmmmm, black, bright pink, orange, lilac. Won't that be a lovely scarf?
Actually I looked at what I had in the merino Gems and I've chosen a dark taupe and a dark golden color. I also found an 8 shaft pattern that I like and will give me some practice for the Huck project.

I need to talk for a moment for the lovely person I spoiled during SP9. Kimberly, Oh how I love her. She sent me a lovely package, that of course I forgot to photograph. It had a most beautiful ball of sock yarn, a ram key chain, some maple candies and vanilla maple syrup (she's from Vermont) along with a pair of circular needles which I have been drooling over - Lantern Moon. She is now my best friend. Sorry Dana - although the delicious chocolate is very great. Now I'm confused about who is my best friend. O.k. I'm going back to Dana because of the long term friendship but Kimberly, you are very close. (hee)

Monday night was the lace knitters group which meets in Okemos. It was fabulous. I was also a little star struck.

This is Sharon Winsauer from here and here. Well there are many more but these are fab. She is a lovely woman and very warm.

Here is Faina, Faina Letoutchaia. Yup, that same one from the Forest Path Stole. She's showing us a new cast on in this picture.

I love them both. There are about 7 other women there too and I'm sure I will learn their names soon. I'm going to go every month. They are working on a project that I want to get in on. More about that later.

So far on the Forest Path Stole, I have the bottom border done and if I could stop typing I would be starting to add the bottom setup triangles. I'll have a picture of that as soon as I knit the triangles.

And back, for a moment, to the weaving. I think I've been thinking about weaving too much. I have a weaving teacher at the shop. I really need to be working on my spinning and become a better teacher. I need to find a way to split up my free time in the shop between organizing, weaving and perfecting my spinning. Any ideas?

Alright, I'm missing Grey's Anatomy and also some important knitting time.

No need to thank me for anything. I am very happy that you were my spoiler, and am looking forward to reading about your future adventures.

Admittedly, if I had gone to the Lace Knitters' meeting, I probably would have been dumbstruck and unable to knit the entire time!

Looks like a great time! I would have been totally tongue-tied!!
