It’s been quite the year, hasn’t it? I realize that I’m seriously behind here so this will be a catch-up post. And I promise I’ll do better in the future.
I already posted about the Quarantine Lace Shawl – I haven’t finished it but I’m still working on it. A couple of rows a day is about my limit because it is so very demanding.
I’ve been spinning a LOT since I’m home pretty much all the time. My favorite dyer, Nancy at Chasing Rainbows Dyeworks, retired this year. Good for her, bad for me. I bought out all of her remaining inventory, including random stuff she found as she was winding everything down. Today’s fiber photos are of what I’ve spun during this quarantine from that incredible stash. Plus the two knitted things I’ve completed so far out of that spinning.
I’m still taking classes at USC here in Columbia, all online of course. I took Fundamentals of Art in summer school, and English 102 Rhetoric and Composition this fall. I really enjoyed both. In the English class, we took a topic for research, crafted an argumentative essay, and then made that into a multimodal public turn. My topic was using Tarot as a tool for gaining personal insight. If you are interested in seeing my public turn, it’s at http://silvergrrlarts.com/classes/WTF.html.
I am a member of the Cayce Arts Guild, and I have a number of items in our Holiday Market that’s going on right now (until the weekend before Christmas). It’s been a long time since I took part in a show, and it feels good. In addition to my usual silver chains, I have fun copper and glass earrings and pendants for sale.
