Wet and wonderful Wisconsin

As you know I have been in Wisconsin since Saturday evening. I hitched a ride with Carol who went to the midwest weaver's conference. I am visiting with Karen in the woods. I am having a great time! I have known Karen for several years now. She helped me, online, when I was a new weaver and had questions about my Union loom. She took me under her wing and we have been good friends ever since.

This is what I have been working on since I came here. Karen had told me she was knitting some hats on a Knifty Knitter and I remembered I had one. I thought this would be a good thing to bring to work on that didn't take up much room.

This is the one I am working on now. I am using  some of Karen's hand spun yarns.

OK, now some of you will find this hard to believe.........I bought a loom!! There is always room for one more, don't you think? This is a Newcomb Studio loom. These are good, sturdy loom for rugs. Doesn't it look wonderful!

On Saturday morning Karen and I hope to drive up to the conference and pop in on the rug weavers get together and show and tell and maybe look at what the vendors have to offer. This has been so enjoyable for me and I am so greatful for the opportunity to visit Karen and see a state I have never seen before!

A very nice loom, indeed. Nice looking hats, too.
