The 1st week end of October I am going to the North Olympic Fiber Festival in Sequim, Wa. I am excited because I am going to take a class on Sunday for dyeing sock yarn. Which I have been wanting to learn how to dye wool so this will be a fun class for me.

PS: I read that the fire burned 10 acres but no homes were damaged.

Spinning on Knitty Gritty

Yea! I was flipping the channels around and found that Knitty Gritty was on. They had the editor of Spin off magazine there along with spinners with wheels and spindles. My DH was LOL cuz I had this smile on my face cuz I found it. Now I want to break out my spindle but I have so many other things I have to do before I can do that like finish off a couple birthday presents for this month and bead some felted balls.

All that work

I had spent part of the day working on blog ring buttons. I had about 4 or 5 of them all set up. I thought I did a good job but somewhere along the way I deleted them ugh!!!

So you would think it would be easy to get them back right??? I went to the ring site then signed in but it kept saying that there is no member with that name and password. Soooo I sent for the info so I could log in to get them all back again. The email arrives and it gives me the same info I had been putting in. So go figure that one huh?

I did that the other day with my blog links so I just put them back up yea!!!!

I got a deal

Today I was out in Silverdale to meet with my friend Illaya while she had a Doctor appointment.
Anyways after we parted I went to Joann's looking for the spin off magazine. Of course they were out and I guess I have to wait till the next one comes out. Anyone know when that is?

I wandered over to the yarn to see what they had on sale. Boy did they have a good deal! I got lion brand landscapes yarn in spring desert for .97 cents vs the regular price of $6.99. Of course they only had 1 color so I bought 4 skeins, 2 will be to make the scarf pattern on the band. The other 2 I will use to make up knitted coffee and needle cozies.

Did I score or what?????

Felted coffee cozy

I am one of those people who burns easy so I have to have one of those cardboard things on my coffee cup.

So I decided to make one up for my cup. I used lion brand wool yarn using the hdc crochet stitch . then tossing in the wash to felt it.

I enjoy it keeping my hands heat free and it is colorful too.

Knitting needles

These are some needles I made up last year with dpn's. I got the idea after reading a book on modular knitting. I got these beautiful beads from a swap so I paired them up with the bamboo dpn's to make 7" needles.
