the queen is back on the throne

er, rather the wooly board.

besides the sleeve setback, queen anne's lace was a really fun knit.

i love the color subs! the color subs are listed in my december 11 2006 post.

and the fit.

now i get to show her off at the madrona fiber retreat this coming weekend :-)

madrona is sooooooooooooooooooooooo much fun, fantastic classes, great market, but best of all are my friends that i'll get to see. some for the first time, hi kerry!

denise and i are rooming again. last year we met for the first time as room-mates, instantly i felt like we'd known each other for years!

this year i'm not taking any spinning classes, all knitting.

thurday is lapland hand garments -the mittens from rovaniemi with susanna hansson.

friday is bohus stickning, also taught by susanna hansson.

saturday is the two color patterns of märta stina with carol rhoades. marta stina's knitting is featured on the new piecework magazine.

can you tell i can hardly wait?

Gorgeous! Fantastic! Bravo! I'm so glad you did it. Hopefully, we're going to see more ;-)

Let me see, hmmm. Are you going to be back before the Bohus you order while you're at Madrona?

I know someone who just purchased 2 ;-)

She's a beauty, all right! Aren't you glad you persevered? :-)

The retreat sounds heavenly. Bohus knitting intrigues me, but it's also kind of scary...
