Two of my three projects for the Conference gallery are finished. I still have two weeks to do the last one which fortunately is in its last stages.

The mitts were knit from handspun, hand dyed Corriedale. The pattern is one of Kathryn Alexander's which appeared in a 2001 issue of Interweave Knits.

The scarf was knit in handspun Columbia from a fleece bought several years ago at the Powell farm in Ramona. The pattern is one of Nancy
Bush's Estonian lace that also was in an old Interweave Knits. I am not sure of the year.

The latest installment of Spindlicity is up and includes an article by me on my trip to SOAR. Lot's of good stuff including my fav, more Maggie videos. In this one she is demonstrating how she makes her special batts.

Working like a mad woman trying to get my projects ready for the Conference Gallery Showcase. This conference has been a big two-year project and we are almost there. Check this out:

Along with classes there will be exhibits of guild members spinning, knitting, felting, crocheting and, of course, weaving. You don't have to sign up for the entire conference to enjoy the vendors, guild booths and Galleries. Come to Riverside for the day and hang with the fiberistas!
