I just couldn't wait for actual lessons with someone with experience. I have a good understanding of the concept of spinning, how a wheel works, flyer and bobbin assemblies, drafting, etc.
I had a brain lapse last week and didn't post Holiday best wishes other than individually. So....I want to wish all of you the very best of New Year's in 2010.
Would any of you find strapping men like to test my glove pattern.
I feel as though I've worked on this all year, but I think it's taken me about 8months to finish this fully beaded, lace shawl. I am calling 2010 the year of selfish knitting.
Starter on the truck went out... no traveling but for bike and bus, and bus doesn't run to the island on the holidays.
I just got my results from my Stole Pattern and posted it on my blog for anyone that is interested...
So Donna * my friends mom* LOVED the gloves. She literally screamed when she opened her gift...I wanted to knit more of my own designs for 2010 so I think this is a good start.
