2013 marked my fourth SAW. It also marked the first SAW where I wasn’t a gigantic stress-ball going in. It has been a long, long time since I enjoyed/celebrated a week. Elizabeth & Co. out did themselves.
Grateful that I was able to spend time with such creative and talented and funny people. Grateful that I was able to broaden my craft world and take classes in basketry, weaving and painting. Grateful for catching up with old friends and making new ones.
is it June 2014 yet?
Cables, color work, a bit of intarsia (not a fan). Silk, linen, cotton, acrylic (shudder). I’ve knit them all, but nothing to me is as satisfying as a simple, wooly-wool, top-down, sweater.
2013 is the Year of the Stash. The plan is to work methodically through a bin/container at a time until it is all used up and then move on to the next one. First up the Noro bin. Good news – I am highly motivated to knit. Bad news – I am going to be sad when it is all used up. Good news – that’s at least 3.5 sweaters away from happening. Good news – I have more wooly-wools to play with – the Lopi bin is huge and I’ve got a sweaters worth of Seacolors that I am twitchy to start working with.
