LAST COUPLE OF WEEKS

The last few weeks have been very eventful. Craft-wise, and entertainment wise.

I’ll start with the entertainment portion.

I am a huge fan of the Twilight series by Stephanie Meyer. I enjoyed the movie version of Twilight and was waiting as patiently as I could for the second movie. I waited until Monday, November 23rd to go see it with two friends. All can I say is “OUTSTANDING”! They had to leave quite a bit from the book, out of the movie which is always a disappointment but understandable. But I have to say I was very impressed with the special effects, especially the wolfs. And now I’m on pins and needles to see the third movie: Eclipse.

On Black Friday, my good friend Amy and I went to The Spinning Loft for a book signing event for Abby Franquemont’s book Respect The Spindle. I got a signed copy of the book, which I starting reading as soon as I got home. I also got two new spindles and some fiber.
I even won a fantastic Abby batt in the store drawing.

The event was so inspiring that I pulled out my wheel and spindles and set about getting some serious spinning done. This is the gorgeous Pygora I collected over the last few weeks. This fiber had been on a bobbin so long, I don’t even know what it is or where I purchased it from. I think Harley approves.  I also finally finished the One Day Beret I started while on vacation back in October.  

I also had a major failure with my mom’s Christmas shawl.  I ran out of yarn about 10 inches from the end of the project.  I ordered what I thought was the same yarn and dye lot, only to discover it was a different weight and had a shine to it that was not in the original yarn.  I thought it wouldn’t be very noticeable, but I was very wrong.  

I decided to go in a completely different direction on my second attempt.  Black chenille is on the loom and ready to become a beautiful scarf.  

It’s time to get back to work so wish me luck!
