TWIST … here we come…

Off to TWIST this afternoon. Tomorrow I am teaching a beginner primitive class and then Saturday and Sunday is the show. This is always a wonderful event with lots of great fibre vendors (so I can spend more money 🙂 ) and beautiful finished pieces for sale by various fibre artists. Should be a fun weekend.

In the meantime, however, Helen and I worked on finishing the edge of her Angel rug. We had 4 long strips of wool in different colours picked out from the rug and the original intention was to do an appliqué edge with one colour on each of the 4 sides. However, as we were pondering over how to best do this, all of a sudden inspiration hit – why not cut up the 4 colours into 3 1/2 inch rectangles, piece them together into a longgggggg colourful strip and show bind the rug with that – and so we did! What fun – here is the finished product. This rug was originally started a few years ago and was meant for Helen’s twin girls when they were still tiny but since they are now in their mid 20’s it may end up becoming a grandchild’s rug – NOT THAT THERE ARE ANY IN THE IMMEDIATE FUTURE but someday!!!!…

  1. Beautiful. And don’t feel badly about timing as I started knitting an afghan for my daughter when she was in high school – to take away to Uni… Then for Uni graduation… Then for med school… Then graduation … Then completing residency and it then became “maybe for a grandchild” but after 22 years it was finished – just before grandchild arrived!!
