UndyedYarnpire’s Fiber Opera

still standing still

Filed under: summary — UndyedYarnpire @ 9:15 pm

I am finally looking at my loom and not thinking, “Dread. Dread. Dread.” Not that there has been any actual progress. I am starting to think weaving just is not for me. The prices went up on the loom I bought, so I probably can sell without a huge penalty.

Twice this week I looked at the bin that has my frogged “Halfaquin” vest in it and thinking, “I could work on that!” I did not work on the socks either.

I did leave the knitting group where I was teaching. There were a lot of reasons for it, especially the specific timing, but mostly I was burned out to the point that I never wanted to knit anymore. Luckily most everyone seemed fairly accepting.

However, this does mean I will have to actively seek out another group so I do not stagnate creatively. There really should be a group in Oakland! Maybe we should meet on Sunday afternoon at Splashpad Park? We’d have to all bring our own beverages and treats and chairs, but there is nearby parking. That is where the Oakland Fiber Festival is held (July 10 2011)… so then it would seem like everyone else was coming to join us. Maybe next weekend I will go and sit on the wall and see if anyone else comes. Well, not if it rains.

It has taken more than three months since we began the project, but the blanket is finally completed.

These are the notes on the Rav project page:
This was a group effort. Many people contributed. Thanks go to B for the two amazing cabled panels. Thanks to C for work on the green panels. Thanks to D and T for helping with the green panels. Thanks to K for the two red/gray panels.
Thank you to everyone in our knitting group who cheered us on and who has been involved in the work.
I appreciate all the knitting everyone did so I only had to do the spacers and the seaming myself.
