The final countdown to Wool Festival is 10 days...and in only a week from tomorrow, Handspun Heaven class #1 takes place. For those of you who have politely signed up without having seen an actual class sample, feast your eyes:
Once again, Terri Ranck has blown our socks off with her intuitive design process. I am so envious of her knitting friends who get to share her energy on a weekly basis...and am actively trying to figure out how to capture her and move her to Taos... :0)
Both Handspun Heaven classes are filled for next week, but Terri will be teaching it again, either this winter or next spring...we will let you know when we pick a date. The handspinners will need lots of time to replenish the stash for the next class...each one of a kind skein has lots of time invested in it.
And speaking of handspinners...I am proud to announce we are nurturing a new one in our midst...Bernadette (aka Bennie)...who has just joined our staff (another round of applause, please). A relatively new knitter, Bennie's many artistic talents are evident in her self-taught, creative knitting pieces, and we can only guess that the best is yet to come. She took a beginning spinning class a mere month ago (with Sunflower Lisa) and is already making awesome yarns...so please welcome her, when you stop in next, and look for her postings here on our blog soon. ---Martie
