The last month has been very busy indeed! I attended the Hoosier Hills Fiberarts Festival in Franklin, Indiana as a vendor for Kiss Looms. The event was a great success, although very hot! Several of us got to meet up again and spend some time looming together, it was a lot of fun. The shopping was great too! I purchased some pretty sock yarn in melon colors of green and orange, some bulky two tone alpaca yarn in browns and some more browns in a worsted weight. We are looking into attending the Greencastle Fiber Event in Indiana next year if there are still slots open. Stay tuned for more info about this event April 2012.
I also attended a class on yarn dyeing. It was my first time doing this but I think i'm hooked. I love the way my yarn came out - I used 3 colors for one and 2 for the other. Here is a pic of it drying out. We used acid dyes for this project and I would like to try Kool Aid and natural dyes for my next time around. This also took care of one of my goals for this year!!!!
I've started looming a few more projects lately. I'm really in to washcloths right now and have several friends who are also pregnant so I plan on doing up a bunch to give as gifts. Here are a few that i've done so far.
