then i got into a bag from really old stash... back in the day when i had the cottage industry BIG carder (sigh... sometimes i really wish i still had it). this is probably merino wool, maybe superwash, with bits of brightly colored silk fiber carded in. i especially love how this yarn knits up.
Laurie brought the new Knit Noro book for me to look at. ends up, i got to keep it, and we called Linda and asked her to hold 1 of the remaining books for Laurie. love this kind of negotiating. the other is a quilt book i just bought, by Laura Wasilowski, whose quilts and books i totally adore. would love to take one of her classes.... if she ever comes out this way from Chicago. i'm planning a hanging quilt using some of her fusing techniques and if it goes the way of what's burbling over in my mind, it will be very colorful, whimsical and kind of a story of my life. stay tuned... we'll see if i can stay focused long enough for that kind of undertaking. i'll really really need the close attention of my muses!
i'm starting to ramble. it was a lovely day with a twisted sister!
