I spent the last day of the yarn crawl at my home haunt, Twisted. I teach many classes here. My trunk show here was just plain fun.
Terri showed me her finished RCYC MKAL for this year. Her friend M was visiting from Canada. M said that she has knit Summertime Blues, but hasn’t blocked it yet, so I let her model mine. Me? I’m wearing my new Beanstalk Poncho. So new, it hasn’t been published yet. It should be out in the next few days; I just need to edit the photo shoot pix we did last Wednesday. The yarn is a gradient set (x2) from Three Fates Yarn in Salem; they have it at Twisted.
Camille also finished her MKAL. Looks great!
Judy took my Athena Entrelac class at OFFF last September. She brought her unfinished project, and decided to knit it with a cashmere blend instead. It will be soft and lovely!
I didn’t catch this knitter’s name, but she was visiting with two adorable littles, and this fox that she knit. Cute!
More Summertime Blues! It’s so helpful for people to be able to see my knits in person and try them on.
Ex-Twistedista Adam came by with Digby. So cute!
Next on the agenda: Getting Beanstalk Poncho ready to publish, and making a video tutorial for another pattern that’s in the works. Blocking my just finished Twin Leaf Crescent for the Black Trillium KAL. Blocking my Stopover sleeves about an inch longer (I’m only going to wet the sleeves. Think it will work? We shall see.) And two design projects that are only in my head so far.
This is part of the yarn for one of the design projects. Two ply fingering weight spindle-spun alpaca from Peru. The hank was bigger than my swift, and I tried to hand-wind it by hanging it on a doorknob. Messy, and totally my fault for being impatient. The other hank? I’m going to call a friend!
