The weekend was just great. I came out of my comfort zone and tried some carding and spun same. Rosalie showed me how to chain/Navajo ply. Thanks Rosalie and congratulations on winning that wild carder. You lucky pink-sparkly shooed gal. Ash won a pair of hand knit socks from Maine and I won a wonderful bag of goodies as a door prize from The Loop of Halifax. See what was in it.
We bought fiber galor. I mean I filled my wheeled shopping cart with it as well as a Spin Off 2011 calendar and the Alden Amos handspinning book. What a weekend. Thank You to Louise and Elaine for organizing and we will see you next year in Nova Scotia. See what I bought.
I finished my Lakehouse socks just in time to wear them to the retreat and here they are.
Here are pictures of Ki Ki and the chicks just before we left. The chicks are now going out side the coop into the pen.They weren't going out when the pics were taken.
To everyone at the retreat who asked me about the apron Ashley was wearing it is Simplicity pattern #7481. I believe I said it was a Butterick pattern. Sorry about that.
Well it is back to the real world. Tomorrow is the first class of 2 color, 2 at once, cuff down socks at Cricket Cove in Moncton. I am looking forward to the class and will be happy to make your acquaintance. Tonight is knitting at Read's in Riverview at 6pm and hope to see you there.
