Forgive me, Knitters. It's been so long since my last post.....

I have pictures and everything.

I'm working on finishing more UFO's, and also using up some stash.
So socks and headbands for now. Oh, and a Vickie Howell Ascot.

Ackk! The day got away -so no pictures! Bad Blogger! I'll put them up tomorrow.

The Alden Amos workshop was great. I learned a lot of basic information and a ton about fiber.

I was very happy with the workshop - although there were some comments about "I thought we'd spin more ..."
We can spin all day long and not learn anything more about what or why we're spinning what we're spinning. I would like to have spun more too, but the learning volume would have been less, I believe.
Fibergal Fantasy has some great pictures of the workshop. She also has organic cotton growing in her yard. Green, brown and white. Cool.
Coming up : classes start the 22nd for socks and 25th for knitting and crocheting. Yeow! Gotta find needles for the knitters.

Thanks for the shout out on the post. I loved the workshop. Fiber prep was the title, so I wasn't sure why people thought there would be a lot of spinning. I don't think I took my wheel out of the car, only a spindle. I just love combing and thought it was very fun.
