I've found some time for spinning and it seems it was time for pinks. I never know, when I go upstairs to spin, what will jump out at me. Yesterday I started to card some other colors, and a few scraps of pinks, turquoise, and green
spoke to me from my scrap basket. I made two skeins with lots of texture as a result. As I headed out to photograph them to show you, I realized today's skein(s) looked nice with one of my handpainted skeins...so here they are.
Then Mr. Sunflower wanted a photo of our dog, Meika, so she could have equal time with Bob. I heard him telling her I like Bob better.
I love my dogs but always remember the saying...cats rule and dogs drool. If this offends you, I apologize right here and now.
Yesterday we had a visit from Kara's parents. They had never visited Taos before, and wanted to come meet those of us Kara worked with during her time here, as well as, well...to see what Kara loved so much about Taos. We had a very sweet visit.
I took this photo of them as they were leaving...Larry, Jackie, and Kara's niece, Maci...who is now embarking on her own knitting career. I know Kara would be very proud of her!
Last, but not least...a progress report of the visual sort on the wedding shawl.
I spent most of the day Thursday warming my rocker and working on it. I have a system that seems to be working, and my plan is to have this finished by the end of July. The pressure is on...especially after reading Karen's blog about how she knitted her sister's lace shawl in under a month, while working full time and raising four children!
Off to work on it now...Martie
