The handout sheet with information on the fiber and it's properties is spectacular.
I love it! If you want to check it out for yourself the link is here. Oh and you get a beautiful big binder to put it all in too. It's all so beautifully done and the fibers are simply wonderful.
In other news, a little sewing has gone on, a little weaving and a lot of enjoying the few days we had ( yes, had) of sunny warm weather. I made up a Colette pattern doing it as a tunic rather than a dress and I have to admit, I don't like it much.
Looks fine, fits okay, could be tweaked, but wrap styles still don't send me. You never know until you try something new if it's going to work for you. But it was so worth trying. I like that sweetheart neckline and Colette does a nice job of drafting for a curvier figure, so don't think it's the pattern, it's the style that doesn't work on me. I loved the fabric so much, I am buying some additional yardage to make up into a well liked blouse pattern. I'll finish the hem up and wear it this summer around the house and not worry about stains and such. Won't I be styling shoveling manure in it!
I do have another shirt in process and one more I want to get done for my trip at the end of the month.
Then the machines will get cleaned and oiled and covered up for a rest. The looms cleared of projects and it will be spring break for everyone but Gene!
I have a few knitting patterns picked out for trip knitting. The lovely ladies at the Webster's were happy to put them aside for me until my next dip into town. Churchmouse Annabelle Cowl and their Welted Fingerless Gloves. One other pattern I'm bringing is this lovely one from Coco.
I love the big collar version and would knit it up as a vest instead of a sweater.
Parting shot: Oh MY! That's some yawn ya got there. ( love the little crossed paws)
