HI! I've Got A Lot To Share...
When I worked on the inside of the case, I found a great flannel that is varying shades of green like grass in a field. I tried hard to showcase the Border Collie in the print as well:
Some time ago, a customer in England ordered this for a friend. I know the friend has it now, so I can share that with you:
That's one of the nicest dragonfly patterns I've seen, with the stained glass effect. This is my largest knitting bag, by the way, the Mavis.
Then my sis-in-law will be off to warmer climes soon, and wanted a fun bag to take shopping:
And she wanted it to be colorful! So there's all sorts of colors and brightness in this print and I stacked a couple of buttons for the closure.
Today, I finally took another class in spindle spinning. I've been wanting to ever since my failed class at Sock Summit 09. My new LYS, Wyrd Sisters offered a class today and the size of the class, I know, made a huge difference (there were exactly two of us!). See the yarn I made?
I'll be working on my technique on some undyed merino I have before I do much else with this, but I can finally write off the "Bucket List" that I want to learn to spin. Thanks, Courtney for a lovely class.
And Cate, thanks for having this wonderful Unplanned Peacock yarn in stock:
(I understand this was a mistake yarn - and she has no idea how she came up with it. Well, Natasha, I'm totally delighted with this lovely yarn - named Mystery, appropriately! Not sure what it will become, but it's mine, all mine!)
Now, in between making bags, I'll be working on spindling...no promises, but as I marked one thing off my list, I wrote one on: Learn to spin on a wheel.
(you knew that was coming, right?)
