I had big plans for posting all week! You can see for yourself how those plans turned out. So here's a picture from Wednesday. On the left is Maple also known as Alpaca Granny. You may remember one of my pal packages had some alpaca fiber from her. I've been reading her blog for some time now and she came to meet me -hee.
On the right is Sharon Winsauer - you know her, Pegasus, Heere be Dragone.
So there they were, in my shop, two girls who I love and look up to. Lovely Wednesday.
Then the Navajo Weaving class came in. Remember how on Saturday they had nothing. Three days later and they've come a long way.
The colors are great and they are catching on to this weaving very quickly. It's just amazing to me. I can't add another project so, no, I'm not taking the class.
On Friday I went to the shop to get some work done and to meet Kelli. She was coming up for the Knitterpalooza meetup and asked if she could come in. Who am I to say no? t was really fun to see her and it was so fun that I took no pictures. I'm hoping she'll put one up soon. Anyway, I was busy putting together my little packages for the SOAR goody bags. I'm making little kits to Kool Aid dye silk hankies - It was Erika's idea to do the whole kit thing. I was just going to stick a brochure and a couple of hankies in a bag. Good thing I've got a good friend.
So then Erika was at my shop on Saturday and she finished plying this lovely silk. I think it's about 655 yards and weighs approximately 4 ounces. It's beautiful. AND she gave it to me. I need a good project for 650 yards of laceweight variegated yarn. Any suggestions?
Here's a close up beauty shot.
And here's a Kool Aid Dyed skein of silk made from 5 silk hankies. It's a beautiful thing too.
The Highland Triangle is coming along but it looks sort of the same as last time. The Feather and Fan shawl has seen no progress whatsoever. I'm off to make some progress on something.
