On the design front, I also found an edging I like and am now looking for a lace panel to fit within the edging constraints. I like it a lot and think it will be pretty. So I am happy. I borrowed Kathy's "Knitting on the Edge" book and found something to inspire me. It's very pretty. So I'm excited about the new design now. Still swatching but getting closer.
I will put pictures up soon with some of these things. I also carded up a dramatic dark sunset batt or two and was planning to spin that. Hopefully this week I will work on it because I want to put more in my etsy shop. I haven't posted anything there for a week. I have some lace weight yarns I can list. I may dye them first. I have a cobweb skein that is too small to sell, and it's so pretty, I wish I had more. I think the fiber is in Chicago that I was using. Oh well, I'll get it all here eventually. I just can't live without my fiber.
We are going to do a design challenge soon among a few of us. We are going to take a photo and create our interpretation of it in several different mediums. I would be quilting of course. So more on that later. It will be fun, I hope. If I get my fabrics soon. They are also in Chicago.
