just back from a fantastic spinning retreat. from friday to sunday, all fiber..... all the time. there was spinning and knitting and all sorts of needlework. there was also food, fun and drinks... and my fabulous fiber peeps.
i learned how to knit from a silk cap~
i also worked tirelessly (okay, really it's chatted and sipped wine) on the radiance. i have only made the shawlette and i really forgot how much more time you need to complete each row when there are five million sitches ;)
i finished the last row saturday night and started the leaves. i was giddy with excitement that the end was near.
sunday i sat down with a cup of tea and kept knitting leaves. it soon became apparent that i was not going to have enough yarn. i set it down, looked at all the fiber folks around the table and sighed. i knew that i had to spin more yarn, i knew that i was on a crazy deadline, i knew that i should not knit another stitch.... but i hope that they could all reassure me it was fine.
i will make it!
