So much to show, so much to tell. Taos was wonderful, especially because my girlie Liz adopted an adorable mutt, Tiwa, from the Taos Pueblo. I'm sure she'll have the whole story and pictures up before long, so I'll let you read about them from her. Trust me, though, Tiwa is possibly the most amazing little pup, and she got lots of love at the conference. She's hit the lottery going to live with such a loving family, too!
I workshopped a story that I first drafted about two years ago, and I think I'm almost done with it. I plan to give it one more draft, then send it out into the world of seldom-read lit mags. Believe me, I'll keep you posted if there is ever good news on the writing front.
I got back on the wheel pretty quickly after my return home. Tour de Fleece, after all, is almost at a close. I, as noted on the Tour blog, am among those who decided to change strategy. After much input from spinners wiser than I am, I ordered some new roving for my sock yarn challenge. I've got almost an entire bobbin filled, but I spin on a Lendrum, so that's not saying much! I do have a question, though. I've got 8 oz. of roving, all of which I intend to spin. So, I'll also need to ply that, too, right? So I'll have the "length" of 4 oz. of roving, all together, right? Does that make any sense whatsoever?
Ok. Now for some pictures.
My KSKS kit from Scout! She included a fabu fair isle pattern from Blue Moon, her own beautiful handpainted yarn, lovely stitch markers, an extra skein of sock yarn in a beautiful burgundy, pretty incense and lots of tasty goodies. I had a great visit with her, T., the Super kids, and Mr. Gus, the baby dog. I'll confess. It was hard to leave them all behind in NM! Either they've got to move back east (ha!) or I may need to go back there. By the way, did you notice how Scout chose a fabric that matches my blog?
This lovely box of goodies from my One Skein Secret Pal. She spun the yarn herself, and it is SO pretty! Thank you!
