It’s been a while since I last updated, so let’s get started!
I’m in the second week of the semester, and I’m enjoying it so far, but of course my fibers class is my favorite! My professor – Jean B. Laman – is so awesome; she gives us complete control over our creations, but is still ready to give us advice and help when we need it. Our first project is fabric manipulation – meaning we’re creating a soft sculpture of sorts.
Even though this is my major, I’ve been have a little bit of creativity block. I’m not really great at sculpture, I’ll admit, because I’m more of a surface design nut. Though today I did come up with a project that will be felted.
Enough of that for now. . .
I have been spinning up a storm lately! I finished my first 3-ply yarn as well as my first month of the Spunky Club fiber.
Fiber: Midnight by me
WPI: 17 (Sport)
Fiber: Spunky Club – Jan. ’09 – “Twilight”
WPI: 11 (Worsted)
I’ve been knitting away on a scarf that I promised my mom for Christmas, yeah, I know. It’s in progress though!
I did finish a pair of socks that I started in October, as well as the star to the Texas Blanket. FINALLY. Sorry for the poor babe that was supposed to actually receive the blanket in November. It still needs to be sewn on to the blanket, and I need to block the whole thing, but it is technically finished!
Job?? What job? I haven’t really been to my “real” job in about a month. I would stop in every once in a while to do some filing for my grandma, but other than that, I’ve had quite the long vacation. It’s good though because not only did I get to spend a lot of time with the boys, but I got a lot of dyeing done! The store is fully stocked right now, and I also have some stock waiting for its place. (My store is limited to 25 items right now).
So, I’m in a bit of a predicament right now though, because I need money, but I really wish that I could just put all of my effort into the store. Ho hum. One of these days, right?
By the way, that little segment was brought on because I will be going to work tomorrow.
I hope everyone is doing great!
