Shawl Pictures and More

Knitting group was as always very fun and Joann and Doris are making great inroads into their shawl projects and Nathalie has started her Drooping Elm socks. Joann has been bugging me as to why the first sock class I ever taught was on 2 circular needles and not one as she is finding knitting 2 socks on 1 circular needle so much easier and faster. I don't know why I did that Joann.Sorry! We will be meeting at Read's again this Wednesday evening around 6pm.Drop ins are welcome and bring a project or just some yarn and some sticks and we'll get you started on something.

I am so excited as I sent in my registration for the Maritime Spinners Retreat taking place in Fredericton from October 31st to November 1st at the Crown Plaza hotel. I received a copy of "Spin It:Making Yarn from Scratch" by Lee Raven, several back issues of Spin Off magazine, some roving and a niddy noddy all from WEBS.I watched a few you tube videos on drop spindle spinning this morning but decided against attempting it for the next few days as I am working nights and I want to be alert when I try for the first time.

Below are the pictures of the Alpaca shawl I made. There are 3 pictures of it made in the mystery wool I purchased at London Wul and one in pink is made from Patons Norspun from my stash.I finished the Eaveryaway wrap that is in the Interweave fall issue.I made it out of Lamb's Pride worsted,colour Prairie Fire.I have made a beginning on my feather and Fan shawl and am loving it.

Well back to work.Coffee is over.Take care and see you at Read's.
Hugs Cinna
