Took part in the DKC's Winter Workshops over the weekend. They were great! I learn how to fibre blend with hand carders, deciphered charts, mastered the YO, upgraded my finishing techniques and created a soft sculptor with needle felting. The attendance was incredibly low. So low, in fact, that classes had to be canceled. (Oh knitting community, where were thou??!) I really enjoyed the hand carding. Does anyone have a pair of carders they want to get rid of cheaply?
In knitting news, I don't have much to offer. Lé Slouch is still finished but the matching scarf isn't really happening (although I tried to knit a dickie-like object, but I cast on too many stitches and it was a bit big). I did finish Paul's arm warmers (which he seems to love). I finished the ears for the finished hat part of Kitty Hat (now I just need to attach them). And I ripped out the sleeves for Tithe and restarted them on the correct sized needles (yes I was using the wrong needle size).
Now I must go back to running around like a chicken so I can join a few ladies out for drinking and knitting.
