Here's the completed Project. Came out really cute.

What's in your Bag?

Check out what I have on my knitting needles, it's a cute bag for my ipad 2. The yarn is Noro, color is Silk garden lite. I am almost done, once I've closed the bottom portion, all that I will have left to complete it, will be the (3) roses that will go on the top corner. I need to complete this before Saturday, as I have a Knitting Demo. I have this part-time gig, working on the weekends at Michael's, as an Instructor, teaching knitting. I really enjoy it. Plus the employee discounts is not bad.

This summer has been one of completion, as we've completed so many projects that we had on the "Must do list". Unfortunately not knitting projects, those continue to line up my hobby closet. With two jobs, getting certifications, and working on these above mention projects. I've had to put most of the knitting, and spinning for that matter, on hold.

As soon as the fall weather starts to kick in, I know I will tackle the knitting project list. My first priority…

Take a Knitting class at MICHAELS in Augusta GA

I am going to be a knitting instructor at Michaels so why don't you come and sign up for a class. It's going to be fun and you're going to love all the great stuff you can knit. Like a cool cover for your new iPad, or iPod. Maybe a beautiful purse.

New Year 2011

This year I've decided to put a dent on my spinning wool. To begin I dug into some llama wool, which I've purchased from Tao New Mexico. It is simply as soft, and yummy as can be. It's spinning up lovely. By the way, did you know the word SPINSTER, Originally a term applied to young unmarried women (since it was they who usually did all the spinning) eventually applied to unmarried women who were past the usual age to marry. I find that quite interesting. Here's a photo of the wheel with the llama wool, and one with the llama wool ready to use for a knitting or weaving project.
