Gryphon will then go down to SAFF, with Paula Woolarina, and hopefully some of my things. And finally, we'll be at Stitches east in Baltimore November 6-9th. wow! The grandmother of all fiber and yarn shows, here we come! So, there will be as much dyeing as I can amanage around Dragonfly headquarters.
Now, before I run off to bed (this post has taken an embarrassing number of days to complete), a fashion show. First, i would like to show you Jack's socks, finally completed to his specs. Knitted in Gryphon's Traveller yarn, France colorway using Wendy's generic sock pattern. His feedback? "A little loose."
This was a dreamy spin and so much fun to do the crazy art yarn techniques, especially the slubs and knots and cocoons. and someday i'm really going to give it to the friend i made it for, really.
For those of you concerned with my sweater spinning, i'm up to nearly 8 skeins, with 3 more to go, of tweedy grey yarn. Next time I'll show you the pattern i plan to make with it. Hopefully.
Finally, these mushrooms below are the same mushrooms as the ones in the beginning of the post, less than a day later. Cool, huh? And oddly breast-like. No idea what they are. We'd planned to continue to watch them to see what happened, until they met an unfortunate end under the lawn mower. I won't mention any names. You know who you are.
And no, it wasn't the cat, who is clearly plotting world domination, or something else fiendish, don't you think?
