Cobweb Scarf

Here's a scarf I made yesterday. I used the brown yarn that I spun recently. This is the first cobweb scarf I have tried. I really like how this drapes and it is really thin.
Here's a closer look. I'm sure I'll try some more of these as it was fairly quick and I like the outcome. Hope you all are having a great weekend!

Isn't this cool?

It's all made from staples! Amazing... I'm back from my trip and hope to have new work to show you soon.

Goodies from Trip to Seattle

We went to Seattle last weekend for a quick trip. I visited the La Conner Quilt museum which had two wonderful exhibits - On the Surface and Imagery & Imagination. I really enjoyed the surface design group's section - there was even felted work. If you are in that area, I suggest a visit.

About the only other thing that we did besides eat was shop. I found some DMC Medici wool threads at Ana-Cross Stitch in Anacortes that I just had to have as well as the rainbow tweed ones. Then there was an outlet fabric store where I got the rest of the goodies. The bobbins didn't come in the little oval holder, I added those when I got home. It just fits the number of bobbins that I have.

Now, hopefully, I am off to Richmond, VA tomorrow. That is if we can fly in there between storms. The flight into Richmond is cancelled tonight and I'm not sure we'll make it tomorrow either. The trip is to go to the Buyers Market of American Craft in Philadelphia that we attend every year for the shop. We will be driving from Richmond to Philly. Wish me luck!
