Intarsia and Swatching

There has been quite a bit of activity in our classroom lately. Last Tuesday we had the pleasure of hosting a class taught by Debbie Abrahams. It was so nice to meet her, I had heard what a great teacher she is, and how very nice she it, guess what, she is! Here is Nathalie learning not only beading, but two color beading. Very impressive.

She is now working on the back. I believe it is going to be a tooth fairy pillow, or something like that. I'll have to get a photo of the finished product. In case anyone is interested, we will be having Debbie back in the spring for a couple of classes, dates and topics to be announced.

Moving along, Monday night we had our Lornas Laces yarn tasting evening. I will post this photo, as it was the best one I got. I was trying to get them in action instead of posing, but they all look either bored, or very into their swatching. I am hoping it is the latter. I think it was quite successful as you can tell by reading Tales of the Knitty, and Wibbos Words.


The next event will be an evening with Debbie Bliss, which I believe is fully booked at the moment. I will have to work on events for the new year, but at the moment the next event will be Nathalies baby, which is due in just a few weeks!

I am also pleased to announce that the gallery is up in the shop. I'll try and get it online one of these days. One thing at a time!
