We do the Joint
So today I decided to head for the Needlepoint Joint in Ogden to see what classes I'm scheduled to teach and decide what yarns to use. Well, and I forgot to resub to Interweave Knits so I had to pick up one of those as well.
I already promised Laura I would bring Trusty, so I thought I might as well bring along the boys, too.
Unfortunately Trusty didn't want to stay in the back of the SUV. The boys were good sports about it. I had to bribe them with McDonalds later, though.
Laura, of course, adored Trusty.
Betty had rushed out thinking I had brought a new grandchild, and had to make a serious effort to smile at him. Verna and Eileen were accepting.
We decided on Ashford spindles for the spinning class, since they're inexpensive; or people can bring their own. I will provide fiber out of stash. They can bring sportweight yarn for the lace sampler (horrors! I have to design a lace sampler!) and bring leftovers for Knitting the Other Way. But which yarn to use for the entrelac hat?
If I use Karoke (50% soy silk/50% merino), I can use the Three Kittens pattern.
If I use Foliage (Berroco, wool and acrylic--but nice acrylic), I have to write my own. But the Foliage is so gorgeous. It is really brown. I can't get my picture to match. Do I want to write an entrelac hat pattern????
