Update from last week!

Linda sent me the photos we took with her camera.

Here she is in her newly completed Sizzle summer weight tank sweater.

And here's everyone saying hello from our gigantic group last week!

I think that photo is a great incentive for the Yarn Harlot to make a visit to the Quad Cities & hang out with us!

Hot weather and cool projects

Finally, the heat has broken and we're no longer suffering surface-of-the-sun temps!

The group has met twice now this week, but I have no photos as no one has completed any of their projects just yet. Hopefully I'll have something for you to look at after next week!

In the meantime, I've some information for those of you who spin yarn as well as weave and/or knit with it. The Bishop Hill Fiber Guild is hosting their Spin In this October. I just received a note from their coordinator, Char Rickey:

Hi Susan,

The Spin-In is Saturday, Oct 21st this year, held at Black Hawk College on Route 78 south of Kewanee, IL from about 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

I am in the process of finalizing the workshops and the agenda and will get information/registration forms in the mail within the next few weeks. I am happy to put you and anyone else on the mailing list to receive the registration form, if you would like. Just send the snail mail addresses of those who wish to be included.

For those interested, here's her email (substitute the words with the symbols and delete the spaces): SpinWool7 AT aol DOT com
