Buy Local Art Show at the Kalamazoo Nature Center. I do love this show. Since it's mainly finished goods, I've been busy weaving and knitting. I always feel pressure when it's finished goods especially since I want to spin yarn all day. Every item I make, I want to keep. I'm not a fast knitter but I enjoy knitting and I simply fall in love with everything on my looms. At the Weaver's Guild Sale, I about had a spaz attack when I saw a couple walking to the checkout line with one of my scarves. I'm still in awe that I create items that others want.
My newest woven creation uses my Black Alpaca yarn with bits of Blue and Green. I am in love with this scarf. I really need to make more unisex items and this one definitely fits that.
I also created another hat using the Barley pattern. This time I used my Alpaca yarn in the Buccaneer base. It feel amazing. Making this hat in wool then in my alpaca really just proves why I have a herd of Alpaca on the farm and not sheep. I do love the soft halo that Alpaca gives and just the overall wonder of the fiber.
So that's my week in Fiber Arts. I have two bobbins filled on the spinning wheel that I just need to ply and I've been working on another hat during my lunches at work. I really need to warp my loom again. Gifts? Oh, there's another 20 days or so before Christmas...I have time ;-) Now share your adventures in Fiber Arts.
