This weekend is all about prep. Garden and Expo
On the garden front, I’m updating my garden spreadsheet and planning seed starting dates
On the Expo front, I’m getting tools (wheels, combs, carders, etc) and materials (wool! lots of wool!) together for my two classes “Basics of Wool Processing”, and “Yarn from Scratch: Handspinning on a Wheel”. Will be the first time 3 years that the event is held in-person, and in a new Stanwood High School building to boot! Should be fun 🙂
And in some spare moments I’ve been playing with a new motif from a book I received as a Christmas gift – Alterknits Stitch Dictionary: 200 Modern Knitting Motifs
I especially like how the pattern worked out in the crown shaping- lucky accident
Have a good week folks!
I bet you are happy making progress on the preparations. The pattern on the hat is amazing. Great Christmas present!
yeah, think it’s coming together on both fronts 🙂 super excited for this year’s garden.
Interesting that the Expo used a photo from the Mongol Derby. Hope they had permission! Your new hat is beautiful, but then again I think ALL your hats are!
dunno. assuming they’ve gotten necessary approvals. Brochure says this year’s keynote speaker is Robert Long, who I guess at 71 was the oldest ever winner of the Mongol Derby.
Oh yes, I followed all the entries for that Derby; he was AMAZING!!! I would love to have heard him!
sadly, I missed the keynote because I was teaching my spinning class-
