Fiber Friday - A Peek at Lion Brand Yarn Studios and Show Season!
According to the Lion Brand Yarn Studio Blog, this piece from Fiber Artist, Joetta Maue, is on display at Lion Brand Yarn Studios in NYC. I had recently started a similar piece (only one scarf, but similar to the seaweed scarf below) with my shop name, to use as a banner for upcoming shows. I'm only partially done with the scarf part though. I guess I had better get crackin' (or knitting)! I thought it would make a cool banner, but I hadn't seen Joetta's work. This is so fun! Visit the Lion Brand Yarn Studio Blog here and Joetta Maue's blog here.
As for my fiber habit, I'm working steadily, trying to have lots of inventory for upcoming shows and the holiday season. I was invited to display some items at a local boutique and I have some designs specifically in mind to take to Shaker Tree, here in Garrettsville. It seems like a sophisticated crowd, so I will be making classic shawls, hats, scarves, etc.....and save the funky stuff for shows and Etsy. I tend to get overwhelmed with ideas this time of year, but have lots of yarn stashed away and ready for fun wraps and wearables, scarves, hats, mittens, and more! While I normally would spend some time making stockings or other Christmas knick-knacks, I'm not sure if I want to do so this year. Time's a-wastin'!
