Free Form and Entrelac

Hi Everyone,

It has been a while since I posted but with good reason. I had a serious health issue, but I am on the mend and trying to get back to my normal routine.

I finished my latest book, and believe it or not, have started another, so like the energizer bunny, I just keep going and going.

Last week, I resumed my teaching schedule.  Last Wednesday, I started with a Free Form talk for the Skyllkill Chapter of the EGA in Hyde Park, NY. We had quite a large group, around fifty members, and we had a great time. I covered my three methods of creating free form pieces, and also covered combining knitting and crocheting in the same piece. Lots of enthusiasm from the group. I usually bring a box of cookies to my workshops, but when I entered the room where the chapter meets, I saw a table laden with goodies of every description, I was embarrassed by my little box of cookies, so I never took them out of my suitcase. :-)

The next day, we did a workshop on Entrelac Knitting at the East Fishkill Community Library
in East Fishkill, NY. As this workshop was also sponsored by the Skyllkill Chapter, many of the students were also at the previous program.  Before the workshop was over all students were well on their way to making a lovely Entrelac Bag.

                                                         Such concentration
                                                           Busy, busy working
Look what I did!!!

Here's the bag that they hope to complete on their own.

Have a great day!
