I had a lovely weekend in Chincoteague, teaching at Carodan Farm’s Soxperience2011, and I hope all the attendees did too. I did bring a camera with me and actually managed to snap a few photos. Very rare for me to remember to do that.
Here’s one of the attendees, hard at work in class.
And the other side of the room:
What a delightful group of knitters they were. I hope they had as much fun as I did.
We had a little downtime on Saturday afternoon, and I was happy to be able to see a few wild ponies grazing in the marshland.
You need to click on the photo to enlarge it to actually be able to see the ponies!
And here is a snowy egret:
And a shot of the ocean:
I returned home late Sunday and mustered the energy to block the Antimacassar Shawl, which I did finish Thursday night. Here it is unblocked:
Lucy included for scale. Unblocked it measures 50″ across the top edge and 25″ down the center back. And here it is blocked:
After blocking, it grew to 70″ across the top edge and 35″ down the center back.
Expect a pattern soon!
By the way, speaking of shawls, the total donations for the Japanese Garden Shawl are now over $5000! You still have time to purchase the pattern and make a donation — I’m donating all money from sales through the end of April.
Also through the end of April, remember that the rest of my patterns are on sale for 25% off (this excludes the Japanese Garden Shawl).
Lucy had a nice weekend with her Daddy, but was still very happy to see me when I got home on Sunday.
A study in kitty contentment!
