I took two very interesting classes there. A "needle-felt an alpaca hat" class with Carol Houghton and a "locker-hooking" class with Kendra Habegger. I have had such fun with the hat I made in class. I have changed the shape of it several times. This is the current rendition. Trust me....It will change again.
I unfortunately have no pictures of the locker hooking. I haven't touched it since March. It was fun but I don't think I will be doing a lot of it.
I did some demonstrations in rigid heddle weaving on a Schacht Cricket loom. The Jay County show is a pretty laid-back festival but a great way to ease into the show schedule. Lots of nice activities for kids on Friday with hands-on demos/classes on everything from felting & beading to sheep shearing. And of course great shopping from all the vendors. A good time was had by all.
Well that's it for today. This is my first Monday in ages without my 2 yr old grand-daughter here to "help" me work. Since I can't use her for an excuse.......I really should try to get something accomplished. ;)
But before I go, here is a picture of my latest knitting project. I have been absolutely obsessed with lace this summer. This is my second Wendy Johnson Shawl. She has inspired me to write my own pattern for a lace shawl. I'll keep you posted on my progress. If you haven't seen blocking work its' magic...check back tomorrow (hopefully). The shawl is currently 21" x 36" just off the needles.

See you next time when I review The Fiber Event @ Greencastle.
