Montana

Ever wonder why it’s call the Big Sky?

And here we are on the top of the world. I don’t remember what pass this is but it was lovely and exactly the right time of the year to meet the most populous residents.. mosquitoes!

But we had nice camping places.

Saw lots of wild life.

Opps! Sorry!

     

But on the way home we found Mt Shasta on fire. Turned out to be a ‘control burn’ which, this time, did not get out of control.

And we got home to find we have a new neighbor, spending the summer in the community.

Now we’ve gone to Black Sheep Gathering in Eugene, Oregon without taking any pictures & are home again for awhile. But it’s been an enjoyable month! Hope your summer is not too hot!

Fair Season again.

First it’s Big Sky and then the Black Sheep Gathering. I think we’re ready! I have all my ‘stuff’ for teaching packed in the trailer but I don’t have any idea if I have anyone signed up!

But meantime I am working of several projects, as usual. My hat was a pretty big hit so I am reweaving it to be able to write up the pattern. I have also been looking at hat wire, hoping to find ready-made rings but so far it looks like they have to be made to fit. I haven’t decided if I want to take that on. I am thinking maybe a kit with yarn , pattern, and wire. But on the other hand the design as it stand now takes 5 different looms so I’m pretty sure some of the interest will be modified by that number. I may try my hand at redesigning it to use less. If you haven’t seen it on Ravelry or facebook, here it is.

And the class, if it happens, is a workshop discussing how to make clothing with your loom. I emphasize the singular Loom as you really can use whatever loom you have.  We all know that Hazel Rose Looms are the best choice of course, but if you have one of the inferior  ones , they will also work. We’ll also do some weaving along with a different methods of joining. I am planning to learn as much as I teach.

Anyway, if you need to try us this month we may be slow to respond, internet on the road being sketchy at times. Please be patient, we’ll be home between fairs. And if you can get to Big Sky or Black Sheep Gathering I hope you’ll come by and see us!
