I'm so side tracked! I've been finishing some socks I had promised, and koolaid dying with my little boy (easy and successful!), and doing a little bag to try to felt, to take my scissors and stuff in to a class on beaded bag making. I am remiss in my shawl duties. I still have to try to dye the cashmere and I think I'm so intimidated by the idea, I'm doing other things to avoid it.
I saw a very young woman working in a bead store who had the most beautiful, fragile looking lacey sweater on over a cami. I asked her about it and she said she got it from someone's grandmother, and gee, it might be handmade. It looked beautifully handmade, very delicate. I'm taking my camera next time, I want to make one just like it.
I'm also working on beading a velveteen cover for a bookbinding project. *sigh* Life is so short.
