Thank you to everyone who let me know they were struggling to do anything creative after the election. I am still knitting chunky cowls, but at a slower pace. It feels good to make things, no matter how slowly. My spinning wheels are all poised with a project to-be sitting in front of them; I can't wait to get started on every single project. I'm not feeling patient, more antsy and needy. Needy in the sense that I need to make lots of things all at once. It's coming and I'm feeling happy about it.
Is anyone sick of hearing me talk about my book? I'm not sick of talking about it!
Felicia Lo recently asked me to be on her podcast The Sweet Georgia Show and it aired yesterday. We had a great time talking about spinning, weaving and of course, color. I think we're going to run away together and spin and weave on a desert island. You can find the show on her website, iTunes and Stitcher.
Do you live in or near Philly? Come spin with me at Loop January 20th - 22nd! We're having a spin-in on Friday night, I'll sign books and have the Yarnitecture trunk show with me. On Saturday I'm teaching Yarnitecture , a class based on my book (Hey, I wrote a book! I'm still excited by it!). On Sunday I'm teaching Twist & Ply: The Difference Ply and Twist Make to Your Knitting and Cheaper By the Dozen: 12 Ways to Spin Variegated Top. There's more information on the Loop blog. Oil your wheel, come down and play in the fiber!
