|New smock, Wingfeathers Shawls, and overdyed jeans|
I was feeling discouraged about not yet silk-screening, not yet weaving, not yet designing fabric for Spoonflower. I have not spent enough time drawing. I have several unfinished pieces. Yet, I have only myself to answer to. I sometimes forget I am not being graded on self-directed projects.
I have been stationing my work to get it ready for display at Trad Arts Studio next weekend.
|and there is a pile of hats and mittens too|
I have had a change of heart. [One can generally count on me to look at the bright side, eventually.] My dampened attitude is gone upon looking at my big picture accomplishments. This collection represents risks taken and umpteen lessons learned, new obsessions ( c r o c h e t ), and a fresh perspective.
In an effort to cover more ground, I will be sharing my undocumented work in outfits from here forward.
If you are registered for one of my classes at Knitting Weekend, here's the list of what you will need to bring:
A Dozen Ways to use Variegated Yarn
All yarn will be provided. Please bring a variety of needles appropriate for dk weight through heavy worsted. Also, if you are unfamiliar with how to work a wrap and turn, please try it out at home. I will gladly help you become more comfortable with it in class.
We will be working a small sample that covers all the concepts in the scarf in worsted weight yarn. I will have yarn available, and you are welcome to bring your own as well. Please bring a 40” circular needle in your favorite size for worsted weight (I use an 8 or 9, I am a tight knitter). If you do not own a 40” circular you can use a 32” for the sample, but you’ll certainly need a 40” for your full sized project.
The scarf can be worked in any weight of yarn, so long as the weight is consistent throughout the project. You are welcome to bring other yarns on the chance you finish your sample and want to get started on your full sized scarf.
If you are unfamiliar with magic loop knitting, please look it up and try it at home. I will help make you comfortable with the method in class.
I look forward to our day together!
