I have been started a new job this year working in the Sweetgeorgia Yarns studio, and I love it! I have been getting to dip my fingers in dyes, pet pretty wool, and surround myself with fantastic co-workers and inspiration every day! Amazing!
I wrote short series of articles for Felicia's blog that launched yesterday called the "Spinning Sessions". Before TNNA this year I spun and knit samples of every yarn base Sweetgeorgia offers, and being the uber-nerd I am, I just had to take photos and notes of the entire process! Check out the first of the posts here!
Also, Felicia and I collaborated on a matching wrist-warmer and cowl set! This pattern was for sale as a sample at TNNA this year, but last night it was posted on Ravelry and is now available to everyone for purchase! Check it more information on the set on Felicia's Blog, or purchase the pattern on Raverly!
And finally, I will be teaching BEGINNER SPINNING CLASSES at the Sweetgeorgia studio this summer! Yippee! Classes will run on Tuesdays nights in August from 6-8pm, and we will cover the basics for getting started to create your OWN yarn! I am SO stoked to be teaching this class - I have been busy creating samples, preparing handouts, drumming up equipment... I am so excited to get a chance to share one of my biggest passions with some brand new faces! There is only 6 spots available for this introduction class, and there are 4 wheels available to loan on a first come, first serve basis (details on the Sweetgeorgia website). If you are interested in coming out and learning the basics of spinning, please check out the Sweetgeorgia website!
And yes, I have been working on my own personal projects, and I will upload pics of a new shawl design and my current spinning project shortly!
I hope you all are having a great summer!
