Spinning, Knitting and Teaching!

hello and again.....apologies for such a long time between posts.
What's been happening??? Spending time at my favorite LYS LisCat in Long Beach CA, with my fiber friend Velvet (Velvetinna on Ravelry) who is an amazing spinner/dyer. Check out her yarns! I've been honored with gifts of some of her yarns (pic to follow) and some wonderful purple fiber she and her husband dyed/blended! pictures here at work but I'll get those up!!! LOL!

I've been working on getting orders out for clients and working on my spinning....not nearly as much as I need to!! I also have been working on some silly knitting projects that just HAD to be done!!!

We (Velvet and I) got Cathrine (pronounced Catrina) at LisCat spinning and soon she'll be carrying spinning supplies including fiber from the mill my sister works at! Hudson Valley Sheep and Wool Co. (By the way.....Cathrine was making yarn within minutes....such a show off!!!)

Yesterday I taught my first Learn To Knit Workshop and it was fantaztik!!! My students were wonderful and more importantly....FUN!!! We did a lot of laughing in between the frustrated moments of learning to knit for the very first time! I had grand ideas of them leaving wearing a wonderful drop stitch scarf I reality they all left with a few inches of garter stitch. But every one of them left PROUD! I am still bursting with joy!

Lorena, Patty, Carrie, Geanine, Marisol and Sara.....the best students anyone has ever had!!

My partner Abraham came along and was a great help to me....making sure I didn't forget important hints!

I did forget my camera but everyone else took many so I'm sure I'll have some posted soon!

to be continued..............REALLY!
