We finally left the 90 degree temps behind. SO MUCH nicer, easy to sleep at night. But Mike is sad. He stands at the door, flattens and then hisses at me. I am to blame for the wind and mist and cold. He only resembles a penguin in coloration.
This fiber is Shetland from Winderwood on ebay. Much softer than commercial shetland yarn. Last time I checked him, there were no dyed rovings. Hopefully he's just taking a rest. So sad if he quit; all his stuff is nice quality, no bleeding.
I've been taking classes at Stitches this weekend. Friday's class was very annoying. I sense that the teacher could have been very good but there was a woeful lack of organization. And there was one VERY ANNOYING woman who appeared not to know how to do much. Like cast on, seed stitch. She monopolized the teacher for 2 hours and then the teacher had the nerve to cross the room and start talking about choosing yarns. "Can we get back to the class?" in a loud NJ accent. Hard to believe someone hasn't lost her in a swamp before this. Today's class was good. Spin to Knit with Merike Saarniit. Even if you already knew how to spin it was enjoyable. I would take another class with her. Made a few inpulse buys of sock yarn. Just in case they stop making it any time in the next 20 years.
