74 days until Powhatan's Festival of Fiber!!!
How about a Scrappy Scarf using the linen stitch?
I will be working on a "Look at my Lumberjack Beard!" and hat for a friend in my neighborhood.
Wonderful! We appreciate all of the help our volunteers are offering! It helps make the day run more smoothly
Sharon...I hope you can make it. We are looking forward to a fun packed day!
Not far at all. It is about 30 minutes west of Richmond.
Powhatan's Festival of Fiber is taking place April 27, 2013 in historic Powhatan, VA . This is the first annual event and there has been a lot of buzz. Check out their Facebook page for more information.
Thank you for the compliments. Yes, that is me in the avatar, and no, she is not my daughter. She is a friend's daughter who was gracious enough to pose for me. I just couldn't get my boys to pose in a shawl...lol :)
Thank you all! I have done some designing for small accessories, but this first shawl holds a special place in my heart.
I am eagerly awaiting FFF! I will be spending some time in the demo tent both days. I will be wearing my Ravelry button...teammom. Fingers crossed on the skein and garment competition.
I just took a Lace Shawl Design class on Craftsy.com and it gave me the confidence to design my own lace shawl. I have named it Falling for Ewe...
I have been spinning for about 2.5 years and LOVE it. I have 2 wheels, an original Kromski Mazurka (my travel wheel) and a 1985 Ashford Traditional. I love them both, but the Kromski is a bit "chattery". Currently, one wheel has hand dyed cormo ready to be plyed and the other has a merino silk blend that I dyed at my spinning guild's dye workshop.
I am looking forward to spending the next month enjoying all of the fiber festivals that are located in VA! I am also excited to announce that Powhatan, VA is hosting its first Festival of Fiber in April 2013! So much fibery fun!!!
