This isn't quite where I thought I was going to go as I sat down to reflect on the day...
I was playing with photos, planning on sharing about my trip to the market place for the Northwest Weaver's Guild.
To show my favorite yarn bombing
And a bit of Western's campus which is beautiful.
when I started to think about what it meant to alter something...
About how to educate is to alter, to change...
In August I've been invited to demonstrate carding, spinning with the drop spindle, knitting and crocheting at one of our local farmer's markets.
I said that I'd love to with the understanding that I still consider myself a beginning spinner.
Today I started two hats, one crocheted and one knit, both with hand spun yarn, to take along.
The knit hat is being started with yarn that was used to test some thoughts about color, how it could be altered.
The crocheted hat is being made with hand-spun yarn that I bought and then cut up and then carded into white roving and then re-spun.
It is being crocheted with a hook that was once a tree branch.
