I was fortunate to attend Madrona winter retreat this year and take classes from The Yarn Harlot (Stephanie Pearl-McPhee), Jared Flood (Brooklyn Tweed) and Judith MacKensie
I love that this gathering is 1) close to me 2) there are so many artists and other fiber afflicted people who come from all over to enjoy the camaraderie and reative environment and 3) the market is not too overpowering as to make you want to take a nap after making the rounds.
I have been a lazy blogger. Actually, I have been a non-blogger for over a year now - there just too much going on to find the time to blog...I really intended to carry on as I go (or whatever the quote is from Elizabeth Z) but work and life continually get in the way.
My knitting is hampered by a numb thumb - a mystery that keeps me up sometimes but I did manage to finish the Traveling Woman Shawl by Liz Abinante in Madeline Tosh Sock - Filigree colorway - love this yarn!
This will be taken on a trip to France this spring! I am proud that I started and finished it in the same month without getting sidetracked by other even more lovely projects.
Next is a ruffle scarf for my friend in France...then maybe I'll get around to some UFO's and more blogging...
