Eggscuse Me

These are the eggs that I'm not sharing. Shannah gave them to me. They came from her very own chickens. They have beautiful shells. They are a little smaller than the eggs I get at the grocery store but ...
Look at the color of those yolks. These eggs are lower in fat and cholesterol than everyday eggs. These eggs come from happy chickens. If you don't believe me go over to her blog and check the chickens out. They are all smiley and free rangey.

And here's Shannah herself at Fiber Free For All on Tuesday night. We had a great time.

She brought her mom, Ina, along. Ina hadn't had her wheel out in a long, long time and so she needed a little refreshing of her technique but by the time the night was over she was back in the saddle.
Even Brittney came. She brought her weavette but didn't want to try and remember how to use it again since she hadn't touched it since December. So, I briefly showed her how to needle felt and she started making a cute little trinket box. Each side of the box is a different color. When she finishes it I'll be sure a post a picture.
That's Rita there behind Brittney. She was pretty quiet most of the evening because she was swatching and casting on for her next lace project. I forgot to take a picture of the feather and fan scarf she knit from the Margaret Stove Merino yarn. She came to my beginning lace class and I am so proud.




All of those pictures are from my weaving class. I didn't weave any of them. The top one is a huck lace sampler in cotton from Judy. Next are some log cabin place mats in Linen also from Judy. Jeanie is modeling her beautiful shawl. The pattern is from a recent issue of Handwoven magazine and she wove it in mercerized cotton. Finally, a table runner from Gloria woven in Gems Merino.
I just took my Huck Lace sampler off of the loom today. I forgot to take a picture. Next I'll be warping for Rose Path.
