ok, i haven't been very good with this whole knitblog thing lately...
but I do have some news!
On Sunday October 23rd I went to the Wash D.C. Knit Out, on the mall, and had a great time :) I learned how to spin, got a bunch of free patterns, met lots of cool knitters includig Nicky Epstein, AND I entered the Scarf Style Scarf Contest and I WON! Grand Prize was a bond Knitting Machine, and a feature in the December Issue of Interweave Knits Magazine! yay! I made a Chinese Dragon scarf, but I can't show a picture yet since it will be inthe magazine. I will also be writing a pattern for it that I will be selling here, and in the yarn shop I work in, The Celtic Knot, in Ellicott City MD.
here's me learning to spin with a drop spindle!
I enjoyed this so much that I bought two spindles and some roving off ebay when I got home :) they're not here yet though!
