What a blast we had, hanging out seeing friends that stopped by (hi Brian, Kali, and Abby!) It was so much fun and I cannot wait to do it again next Saturday. So if you didn’t get a chance to come by last weekend, definitely try to make this coming weekend. We will have more wine and munchies and my friend Alicia will be there selling some of her gorgeous jewelry too. And again, for the knitters enticement – it’s in the same building at the Classic Elite Hub Mill Store 🙂 But before you stop there, check out my hand-spun and some of the other fiber artists in the building. There is so much amazing stuff. I will also have some dyed rovings for spinning.
Unfortunately I have no photos because DD took my camera out of my purse and forgot to return it so no pics from this past weekend 😦
I just got some new colors in and I ordered some super-wash merino blended with tencel roving to dye so I will be doing some more dying this week and I promise to take pictures. I’m also spinning up a new colorway I dyed last week. I’m calling it Watermelon Tourmaline – just gorgeous!
I’ve also decided to do Fiber Dyeing Studio Timeshare/Classes. For $20 a day you can come and use the studio space to dye. You bring, your own fiber, dyes, crockpot and we’ll have the tables, sinks, and space to make the mess. If, you don’t have dyes, you can use mine for an additional materials fee of $15. If you don’t know how to dye – come and we will teach you. I use Washfast Acid Dyes, with vinegar then the dyes are set with heat, either in a crockpot or steamed.
Right now I have some space open for dyeing on Dec. 29th so if you are interested zip me off an email. – lchantler at gmail dot com.
I am also doing some custom color dyeing for needle felting – wait to you seen what I am working on now! I can’t tell because it’s a prezzy for my sister.
I am almost finished with the smoke ring. I’m finishing off the picot cast off now and will try to get that blocked this week too. Then I just have the other Lenore sock to finish and the Broad Street mittens to complete. There is a light at the end of the holiday knitting tunnel!
Brian got some of the colorway that I am also spinning up – check out what his done!
