the view of the walk up to the cabin I shared with three of my best friends
the four--count 'em, four--Stephen West Mystery shawls in progress at camp
working on the community weaving project
a panel from Dana's rigid heddle-woven blanket
another kind of spinning--we met lots of rather amazing spiders this week
visiting Cloud Hollow alpaca farm
Rachel's natural dyeing class--indigo as it begins to oxidize
midway through . . .
a visit to Katharine Cobey's studio
a view from the loft. I never wanted to leave.
fogged-in cove, gorgeous studio, knitting goddess, standard poodles--yeah, I'm happy
Rachel's yarn for the week, both handspun and naturally dyed
the varied and wonderful results of the needle felted sheep class
some of the amazing felted bowls we made on the last day
These felted bowls, one of the best classes I've ever taught, summed up the week for me. We all had the same materials and the same time, but the finished pieces were all wildly different, and all absolutely gorgeous. Everyone's experience at camp was completely different, but I'm pretty sure that none of us would trade it for anything. Next year we'll be meeting up from July 28th to August 3rd. There is nothing that will stop me from being there, and I'm already counting the days. Hope to see you there!
