Finished my swap shawl:


I love the pattern. I need to get my hand on some Araucania Ruca (It drapes stunningly), and then I’ll make one for myself as well.

Dyeing workshop 2

It’s not raining this morning, but everything’s still wet. I’m hoping they’re wrong about those showers for today and tomorrow so I can finally stain the last section of fence.

In other news, Saturday held another fun road trip outing with the local stitch’n’bitchers. Learned a new technique in my second dyeing workshop, and the pic shows the results.

Oh, and new market bags are now up at buntart. Still sold for a good cause. And, dudes and dudettes –  Christmas is gonna be here faster than expected. Again. Just sayin’.

Had a fabulous day out yesterday, a roadtrip with the Ottawa knitniters (the local stitch & bitch) to a Yarn and Music store in the country, with a breakfast stop at a pancake house (mniam). We had an all day class in dyeing wool – different yarns, different techniques. I’ll definitely have to try this out at home. But the best was, we had a blast together.

Here’s the tangible result:
