If you’re in Kansas or western Missouri, head out to Wamego tomorrow for Winter Woolfest, organized by the amazing Jennifer Schermerhorn of The Wicked Stitch Yarn & Fiber.
It was great fun last year. It’s free, with tons of free classes. I myself will be teaching thrums and knitting wire, and I’ll also have a booth for Art Club selling fibery goodness.
In knitting news, Drusilla’s finished an dall but out the door. I lost one component & with this utterly ridiculous weather, I haven’t been able to replace it. I don’t think I can show the full thing, but here’s a little detail peek:
I’m well pleased with the result. I’ll post info on the book when I know more.
I’m also one slipper into a pair of Bunny Hops for Ron. They were a Christmas present, but I only had one slipper and half of two sweaters done when Christmas actually rolled around.
Hurryup, knit out of order because I never get the length of anything right bottom-up. I think my idea mod for bottom-up sweaters is to start at the pits with a provisional cast-on, work the yoke as directed, then work down. Otherwise they look like art pieces for 8-foot aliens instead of proper human sweaters, particularly for short people like me and Ron. The shaping really suits him, with his broad shoulders & chest, and I love the shape, so I’m probably going to have to make myself one, too. Maybe from Rhinebeck fiber?
Off to get all my stuff together for tomorrow! Yippee!
