This is one of the treasures I bought. Its a blend of camel and silk in a color called Arcade. I am thinking of using it to weave with/ Plus with all that color it will really be fun to pin with.
I was very excited to see this. Its naturally colored cotton from Peru in a color called Chocolate. It is really beautiful in person. There is a lot of color variation, I think it will spin up beautifully.
I was in a class with my friend CJ so we got a pic of ourselves together. We were learning techniques for spinning yarns on a drop spindle.
One of the things that is so great about attending one of these events is all the cool things you see just because you are sitting by someone. I was right by the Salt Lake Knitters Guild Booth when I saw this shawl. The colors were just lovely but I loved that you could wear it two way. This of course is the traditional way.
In this view the wearer has turned it around so it like a scarf or cowl type garment. I love the idea and found out the pattern is on Ravelry so I will be adding it to my collection soon.
Whenever I attend one of these events my head is always full of great memories and some wonderful new ideas that I want to try. New inspiration is always great no matter what kind of creative pursuit you have.
