Saturday was Fiber Frolic at Meridian Jacobs. Colleen Simon (friend down the road) put this on and each teach two classes. Participants get to pick from two classes in the morning and two in the afternoon and lunch is provided.
In the morning Colleen taught minature sock knitting–it is the same as regular sock knitting, but many fewer stitches. While she was inside I was outside with the dyeing group. Good thing that this class was in the morning because the high temperature that day was 107!
Look at the fiber and yarn that we dyed!
We all went inside for the afternoon. I taught a Novelty Yarn class while Colleen taught Needlefelting. These are the butterflies that students made:
On the weaving front–I finally finished a batch of baby blankets. Here is what they look like when they come off the loom:
Not too impressive, huh? That’s 18 blankets. Here are some that are finished and ready for sale:
I have sold 6 of the 18 blankets already so I’d better get busy with another warp!
The State Fair is going to get in the way of that though! That is coming up this weekend and I am still working on my display.
