It’s Finally Here
Yes, today, I head up to Upstate New York to meet up with a bunch of guys to spend time relaxing and knitting and spinning and teaching…okay, perhaps there won’t be quite as much relaxing as I initially anticipated.
I don’t want to spoil anything for anyone reading this who will be there, but many yarn and fiber companies, as well as one very generous reader have sent little gifts that Ted and I are allowed to give to the participants.
Reader BJ has been extremely generous by helping keep the guys supplied with sweets (and very NICE sweets at that, from M&M/Mars). Look what she sent…
Yes, customized Dove chocolates. BJ is now my personal sweetie (you’ll note I had to open one of the candies to realize what was inside…I HAD to make sure they hadn’t gone bad in shipping…right?).
I’ve made very little progress on the lace knitting. I’ve completed the second of two center squares and I’m just working on the extension of the square that makes the piece oblong.
Sorry for the bad pictures, I’ll get a better one soon.
I’ve also had to work on putting together samples and exercise pieces for a workshop on turning heels on knitted socks.
This picture shows three disembodied heels, turned in three different ways that I’m using as examples for the workshop (Short-Row Heel, Andersson Heel and Dutch Heel).
Can’t wait to see the other guys, and the projects they’re working on.
