Announcing the Wearable Art by Texas Artists show running from September 9-29, 2014. The Arnold Gallery in Mason, Texas is hosting this show. Thirteen very diverse artists will be exhibiting and I really wish I could copy the pdf poster to show you who all will be there. On opening day there are special events running all day including a spinning demo in the morning and weaving in the afternoon. I only wish that I could be there. Instead I am sending four of my creations.
Here, not only can you see the funky handspun (yes, me again with an art yarn) "collar". Not sure what to call it. I bet it would look smashing on the little black dress. I am also caught giving the photographer a lesson on how to take the picture.
These fun fingerless gloves are in wool and were just playtime to make. Oh what comes out of the imagination on a rain day!

This winter I hope to have the opportunity to teach a few knitting classes. Three that have been formulated are introduced below. All designs are my own.
This Woodland Trail Sock was a joy to design and to knit. The sock class is aimed at beginners who have never done a sock before. To make the heel during the duration of the class, we will be using worsted weight yarn.
And last but not least, the poncho. This is a study in cables, for the beginner. Two very simple rectangles. The easiest little cable you can imagine. A seed stitch border. It all comes together to create the Rocky Rapids Poncho.
