Let's see..... YarnOver 2010 was terrific! I hope to go again. My photography class was very enlightening. I learned a great deal, and took pages of notes. I now need to practice.....and then practice more. I also need to put together a light box. Neither of those two things have been accomplished yet. So, my photos will show no marked improvement yet, but hopefully....eventually.... Those mysterious terms such as ISO, Aperture, White Balance, Macro are all a little more meaningful to me now. Luckily I think I accidentally purchased a terrific camera. Like I said....now I need to practice!
The Two-Ended knitting class was also very interesting. Her version was Swedish in origin. She warned that due to the twisting motion used during the technique, many of us would have hand/wrist pain. She was right! So...it may not be a technique that I do a great deal of, but I always enjoy learning new "old" knitting traditions.
As for what's been happening in the spinning/knitting front, I have spun this fiber: (hey! not a half bad photo - that one! Playing with the ISO setting actually works!)
Speaking of colorwork, I have finished a pair of socks but they are not yet blocked, so photos will be coming soon. Just a tease for now:
And, I started yet another pair, in more "my" colors....soft and muted. I like!
My handspun sweater is patiently awaiting some undivided attention. I need to finalize sleeve length and do a few finishing touches. So....soon. I have the band finished. It's just too big of a project to travel well, so it's been neglected of late.
