argh...these photos never end up in the order I want them. anyway...these first two photos show a blanket I worked on all through the summer using up all my skeins of cool handspun yarns I have received from friends, shows and my daughter, Trista. It's huge and covers my whole body to keep me warm while I watch tv in the cold winter months. I call it my magic blanket because it just feels like one. Each yarn I see worked in reminds me of the person who gave it to me and it really makes me happy. I call it freeform crochet, something that I picked up from a teacher 4 years ago at the first Artfiberfest.
The lime green skein was something I had to get from Tracie Lampe for my magic blanket. It just needed to be included. and the bags below (made from recycled plastic bags) are samples of a class Tracie taught at the retreat...something everyone was absolutely flipping out over. The one with the heart was a gift (thanks Tracie) and the other one I just had to buy because I just had to have another one. I'm definitely pushing on her to teach that class again. http://www.lampeslumps.com
