It's a fibery week

It's a very fibery week for me. I would like to get 8 more skeins done for the competition at the Taos Wool Festival at the beginning of next week. I'm going to keep trying for a pretty, shiny Best In Show silver medallion. I have a couple of great ideas for skeins, so that should keep me out of trouble this week.

I also start weaving class tomorrow night! The final frontier in my fiber feats of daring-do. I've wanted to learn to weave for so many years, but the right opportunity hadn't presented itself. Taking the 8 week weaving class with Connie is going to be a blast! I forsee chenille scarves and throws for Christmas in my future - must add gift certificates to WEBS (www.yarn.com) to my Wishlist along with that list of books I got.

Another bit of good fibery news is that I'm on the list to rent one of the Guild looms (Schacht Baby Wolf) for 2 months starting right after SOAR. We are really lucky to have such a good guild here, and there's no way I can beat $12 per month to rent such a nice piece of equipment. There are advantages to living in Schachtland *smile* Some day, however, I want an 8 shaft Mighty Wolf in either Red Oak (custom!) or Cherry.
