24 HOURS IS JUST NOT ENOUGH !


Wow! How quickly we forget the frantic pace of summer!

I have three large felting panels on the go - no where near finished. This summer's rug (my handsome yet cantankerous goose whisperer "Finn") is nearly finished - as you can see. Lots and lots of dye pots and handspun on the go. Woven pieces as well (I'm as surprised to be weaving as anyone else)! Sherri, Linda, Karen, Odette, Josette and myself have been busy hosting tour groups of all sorts. We have some fantastic new group programs available now and into the Fall season. For Ontario Hand Weavers and Knitters, I understand that London-Wul has been featured in the most recent issue of Fibre Focus Magazine. I haven't seen the article yet...looking forward to it.
Our Lace Knit-A-Long is proving to be lots of fun, many laughs most at my expense:) True, I have not yet finished a swatch on this project, it's not for lack of enthusiasm (more due to the fact that we are painting in the house right now, building a deck and fencing new pasture).


This weeks sock walkers group was much appreciated (or finally sitting down to knit that is)after our fearless leader (me) turned down the path less taken on the pre-knitting sock walk. We persevered through a lovely freshwater bog, didn't we Tanya? Hmm, once we got back from our adventurous trek we were greeted by a well rested, dry and cozy group of not so adventurous (read smarter) sock knitters.
