Busy Fall

Yeah, it’s that time of year again. We’ve been in the shop a lot this summer and I think we’re ready for September. The days are getting shorter and the nights — and days— are cooler. Kids back in school, summer trips a memory, time to get into the yarn bins and get out your looms again. I have got a couple new things to show, among then two patchwork shirts that will be for sale. I have more patches but only got two finished. And it’s wool show season again!

And meantime, in case you have missed it, we are having fun on Ravelry’s  Looms To Go playing with pulled thread designs on our Mutli looms. Weavers are finding lots of interesting patterns and sharing.

And for those fellow doll enthusiasts there’s also a thread weaving for them currently!

We’ll be heading to Arcata to the Natural Fibers Fair this coming weekend. Next is the California Wool and Fiber show and then as always, Oregon Fiber Festival! We’ve going to be on the road for most of the month. And this week we have a treat– my brother and wife are here visiting. That’s always fun. They are starting a two month long journey in their new RV. Going cross country to visit family on both sides.

So… We hope to see as many of you as can make it to the shows.

Happy Weaving!

Eye Candy!

Karen in Florida wove this heirloom quality blanket on her 12″ square. One picture really is worth 1000 words! She says the yarn is “Classic Shades by Universal Yarn and Classic Solids in black. Had a hard time finding the black, told by the manufacturer that it was discontinued so I hunted for it- found some at Herrschners. Thought it was important to have the same percentage/ blend of acrylic and wool so there wouldn’t be any problems when washing.” The blanket is presently on display at her lys, who wanted bragging rights for a bit. Can’t blame them!
