Hi I think I am finally recovered enough from this last fabulous weekend with Grete Bodogaard. Phew what a full weekend. Friday 9 am to 5 pm and Saturday 9 am to 9 pm and Sunday 10 am to 4 pm. We worked hard and everyone got at least 1/2 way through the tapestry sampler. I must say if you get a chance to take a class from this wonderful lady do so. She was at the Versterheim Museum in Decorah, Iowa teaching so maybe someonegot time with her there. She is well worth your time if you are into learning weaving especially tapestry. Hoping to get some pictures uploaded. I took some of the afgan squares and finished afhgans that were there also. They are part of the exhibit that our guild has up. We have been working on these (well at least some guild members were) for over a year. I did not work on squares but I did start the book long enough to learn how to knit Continental style. Hmm I will have to go look for that book to give you it's name. It only took me a couple weeks of diligant practice to get the technique. Now I am quite fluent at it and am working on teaching my fingers to do the purl stitch in it better. I do not like to purl in the Continental but it is improving some. Just not as easy as the knit stitch. Boy did it increase my speed to learn this. Making the idea of doing larger knitting projects that are complicated a lot more doable for me. Best thing I ever did for myself.
