After a day of travel (eleven hours in a minvan, five people, six wheels, an inkle loom and luggage) and a day of work, SOAR seems like a distant memory, but I do have New Fiber.
Really though, it's a small but respectable addition to Ye Olde Stashe: respectable due to both the small amount (at $25/ounce, small is all I get) of paco-vicuna as well as the nice big bag from Rovings. The picture is a bit of a cheat though: the neat balls of natural yarns on the right are old, old, old and are waiting to be made into the Yum Sweater I've been promising myself since I started spinning. I'm thinking Something Modular, but I guess I usually do. I wonder if I could come up with an entrelac variation that Kathryn Alexander hasn't already invented? Nah, probably not.
Next trip: Chicago. My friends Nancy and Adriana from San Francisco may end up being on Oprah; either way, they'll be in Chicago through Saturday at a niiiice hotel (according to the website anyway), which warrants another quick road trip. Listen, I drove up to Marengo and back in one day to fetch my Victoria, so overnight in Chicago will be just peachy.
I also just heard that I'm teaching three classes at BeadFest Miami, April 11-13 2008. Don't think I'll drive that one.
I tried and I tried to insert pictures of the classes, but the server blah blah blah. So sorry.
