see you in 10 days!

my friend terri and i are going to west virginia-

to take a windsor chair making class with charles boland of storybook joinery.

terri has a woodworking shop that would make norm abrams pee his pants.
i am so so over my head, wish me luck that i return with all my fingers ;-)

print o' the wave blocked. it was so muggy out this morning, when we took the first photos, they were blurry cause the lens was fogged!

rebecca was not here to model, so you are stuck with me.

print o' the wave, designed by eunny jang, knit with 4 skeins of alchemy haiku in copper. size 8 metallic seed beads. size 4 lantern moon needles.

this wasn't knit at the speed of light. it was started last spring, i ran out of yarn with 2/3 of the last long border. found last skein in closet last week.

the first skein of haiku is lighter than the rest, the border skeins both match thank the fsm!

i'm ignoring the color differences and happy the print is finis.

blogging from the fort lauderdale airport, how cool is that? i cannot wait til the whole world is wireless :-)

This looks absolutely beautiful. I suspect the colour variation (in association with the beads) actually adds to it.

Beautiful shawl! Have fun and be careful! Measure twice, cut once.

That is quite beautiful. The differences in color don't come through on my monitor. Mr. E is looking over my shoulder, and is very impressed with that knit.

Have a great time at the workshop. Keeps the grey matter young.

Wow, Vanessa, that workshop sounds fantastic! Don't stand directly behind the saw. (That's the one thing I learned in wood shop.)

Your shawl! It's stunning. Don't get it stuck in a saw. :)

I just can't get over how the two of you know each other! Someday you are going to have to explain how you met. Both of you are always an inspiration to me with your diverse hobbies. Windsor chairs? Amazing! Absolutely Amazing!
