I should be moving faster than I am on these scarfs, but I caught a cold so I’ve been huddled down under a blanket and occasionally knitting. I figure if I knit one hat a week until November, I will have a good collection for my sales. But I’m not putting any hats in my shop. I can’t guarantee size. They are all knit from my handspun yarn and each one fits differently.
I also signed up for the Michigan League of Handweavers workshops in early June. The three day class I’m taking is with instructor Bobbie Irwin – Shimmering Colors: The Magic of Iridescence. I’m really looking forward to that. I just got the book Weaving with Echo and Iris for Christmas and frankly, I could use a little hand holding so I hope to be able to walk out of that class with a couple of scarf projects planned.
At the end of this week I’m going to the TNNA conference in San Jose, California. Maybe I will pick up some new ideas there, too!
Oh, and before I forget, I signed up for Jane Staffords online weaving seminar. She’s doing new lessons every five weeks, I’ve watched just part of the first one. She’s starting at the very beginning of a project, talking about winding a warp and I’ve picked up a few tips..things I knew but had kinda forgotten to do.
