Fiber arts workshop

We had a great morning catching up with everyone.  I'm so proud of my student and birthday girl Jane.  She finished her first sweater knitted with Noro yarn.  Perfect fit and great colors.  She's graduating on to learning how to purl now.

We had a new member join our Knitting group this morning.  Welcome Chris, I can't wait to see what lovely projects you create.

Summer tunic

I so enjoyed knitting this tunic.  The yarn is beyond fabulous.  I love the feel and the drape.  In all my years of knitting this is the best project so far.  I'm going to make more.  Quick, Simple and Fabulous.

Lynn finished another crochet yarn taster throw.  Love these textures and colors.  The photo does not do it justice.  Today she was perfecting her spinning skills.  Noro roving is heavenly to play with.

Cozy cottage coat

I was able to quickly finish my cozy cottage coat yesterday.  It really took me less than a week, but I dragged it out a little longer because I wasn't ready to be done.  I loved the colorful and the textures of the yarn.  I had to use duper bulky yarn and large size 17 needles to quickly finish a sweater in my size.  I enjoyed the process.  There was a lot going on in my house and life last week so I put all of that nervous energy into this wonderful sweater.
