is this little critter - he keeps telling me his name is Grinch but I think he should choose something else. Anyone have suggestions? Anyone want the pattern? I am trying to decide whether to write it up or not.
Given that there is a solid sheet of ice between our door and the cars that I don't want to risk falling on we are not open at least until noon. I will re-evaluate then, but it is looking like a no for the whole day. Everyone - stay safe and warm and I am pretty sure we'll be in tomorrow.
Stash busting is my thing lately - that and finishing stuff.
I had 4 huge skeins of grey tweed someone had given me years ago and now it is GONE! A crocheted rug is perfect for getting rid of yarn fromt he stash - I cannot bear to throw yarn out, that's just wasteful.
I had mentioned this to someone and she said she wanted a class.....I scheduled one for May 17th. You could do this spiral or this:
This from the first Weaving School Class. Laura made a table runner in a log cabin pattern. The next Weaving School class is Loom Controlled Weaves, Sat, Mar 8. You can learn to make patterns and textures on your rigid heddle loom.
Nancy came pretty close to finishing - and really since it has been over a week since I took this, she is probably giving it away now. It was a great way to learn a lot of knitting techniques and a lot of fun for everyone.
Lisa is doing a Stitch School class - the first one is full, next scheduled one is April 26th.
We got some new baskets at market. These little ones were so cute I had to get them. I see purses - but you could put a small project in them, loop the handle around you and knit as you walk through the market....
