Many of my blog friends are participating in or are "following" the Year of Scarlet Letter blogs. I have been working on (well not really) the Where the Hart Lives sampler. It was a WIP when I joined the blog and while people are finishing huge SL samplers right and left - I am still stuck on the border - AACCKKK
It's not that I don't like the sampler - I do - actually when I leave it put up for a long time - I really like it when I see it again and I tell myself - Oh gees - surely I am half finished - NOT - I guess just like with any goal - baby steps get you to the completion. I am going to try and renew my promise to at least work on this sampler once a week.
If there are any knitters out there - perhaps you've heard of The Loopy Ewe. I know I've mentioned Sheri's great shop before. I am just an online customer but she runs Camp Loopy every summer. There is a different project/challenge every month of the summer - 3 in all. I have participated every year and this year I drug a few friends along to camp with me. Here is a photo of my DF Kris and me at Starbucks this weekend "camping" and doing our WWKIP ( world wide knit in public) day. My blue whale is in the foreground - beautiful colorway and it's coming along. Have to be done by the end of June and the next challenge starts on 7/1.
Another photo of DF Henri and Kris along with my oddly illuminated CL owl sitting in my chair. This was at a different Starbucks location the weekend before as it was our "start day" for camp loopy - we all wanted to be sitting around the campfire together. "camping" at starbucks is about as adventurous as this gal is going to get LOL
Polly Minick had seen my green Elinor at a rug workshop and asked me if I could make her one in black. Well - Polly is coming to my area for a rug hooking workshop this weekend and I "need" to have her scarf ready for her to take home. Too bad you can't see anything much from the photo but I have to show "almost completed" projects when I can. It is a cable ridge pattern and has a nice cable panel. The yarn is exquisite Shibui baby alpaca with a strand of their Silk Cloud - to say its yummy is an understatement. I hope Polly loves it. With that said - I'm sure my next post will show highlights of the rug hooking workshop we are having with Polly this weekend. A trunk show of her and her sister Lauries designs - hooking and having fun with local friends and friends from out of the area who are coming for the workshop. What could be better for June jottings. Until we meet again dear blog friends - have a jovial June!
