Busy as a Bee

Oh my gosh! The weather broke and it has been beautiful out!!!! There is something about having all of the Spring cleaning done that has put a little 'Spring' in my step as well:) This time of year is so wonderful!
I was recently invited to bring my work to a Pottery Studio owned by my wonderful friend Lynn. She is an amazing potter who captivates you with the very verbal description of her firing process. I may have mentioned her in an earlier post. The studio features two potters with unique styles and is located in Ulster Park which is about an hour drive......a very scenic hour drive! I was allowed a rack of scarves........since the weather is much much warmer than normal scarf wearing weather, I've decided to work on my towel inventory. Towels are not my favorite thing in the work to weave but, I have way too much cotton in my stash! Towels could also be a wonderful compliment to say, a tea pot wood fired by Lynn! So! Towels it is! For this first set I went with some bright Springy Eastery colors in a huck lace pattern. They are off of the loom and although I had plans on hemming them today, I never got to it:)

I also finished knitting the lace shawl, blocked it, and dried it! I'm really happy with it except for two VERY noticeable yarn overs in the stockinette stitch center. Oh well......I still just love it;)
I spent the morning working on a plain weave/basket weave combination towel pattern while Jeremiah was still sleeping. I'll post more about those soon;) Happy Spring!!!
