It was actually snowing enough today to wear a winter hat - so I had a chance for the first time to wear a beautiful hat knitted by my brother-in-law, Pfef. Not only did he knit me the hat, but also matching socks and sweater, a Levold Herod design. How lucky am I?! In the background of the photo is one of my sister Jenny's luscious hand woven towels.
The dismal afternoon weather allowed me to drink alot of coffee and almost finish hooking the Johnny Cash #1 rug. I'll post a photo when it's done.
A couple of weeks ago I dropped off the oak & acorn stool at the Fiber Art Center and was fortunate to see the Bamboo Show, a show of interesting and diverse pieces using bamboo. I also had the opportunity to see a trunk show of Afghanistan war rugs. The rugs have really stuck with me. Some a bit difficult to view but really interesting designs.
