wow! looks like you had fun!!! from my monitor the scarf looks great-and i lived in Minnesota for 8 years-that vikings fan is gonna love it! "ef" the lakers!!!

p.s. what do you use the coiled yarn for?-it looks too dense to knit. but it looks fabulous!



Just, wow.


(ps! i like the scarf, it doesn't look grey to me. is it going to be super long?)


Wow, that is some wheel, looks like a fast way to get good at long draw. The scarf is beautiful, can't wait to see the whole gradation!

I was great to get to know you this SOAR, Maia! I took a video of the pendulum wheel demonstration. If you listen past the coughing, you can here her describe how the wheel works.



Meeting you was one of the reasons I especially looked forward to SOAR this year but I was thrilled that you were even more of a delight than I expected. I sure hope you go next year. You have that strange fibery twist of brain that makes you fit right in.


I love the coiled yarn. The scarf is a little muddy, but it's interesting too.


Great wrapup! I'm glad you included pictures of the textile museum collection.


You always amaze me, what a great adventure! I'm in the WOW category!

...and I don't see any grey - my monitor loves the scarf colors!
