The "Art" in yarn

Last night at the store Ashley Martineau taught her fancy plying techniques, how to ply "rope", seashells, boobles and coils.   It is amazing what each participant made from just two bobbins of single plies.  A little samples of their finished products are above. Ideas of what people can make with this very creative yarn were flying throughout the store.  She will be offering her great classes again in August!

The June hand painted fingering weight yarn project is done!   You are looking at the wrong- private side. Sorry the photo isn't that great but it is off the blocking board and in the store as I type.  This is the scalloped shawl from the Malabrigo 3 book. I am very pleased with the gradient look of using the semi solid  towards the end of the scarf. The lace part is actually the semi - solid in blue.
