I can not believe it is August and I am just now finishing a pair of socks for the Summer Kalcal! Ah well, better late than never!! Now my goal is to blast the hell through this and have another pair before the deadline! Fiddle-dee-dee! Also I have a wee bit more spinning done and this is not even the good stuff! Last night I actually did a damn fine job of it Yeah!! in the foreground is Malchite and it is a dash smaller than worsted weight I think! Think I am going to get a smaller weight spindle...I promise not to get crazy...just to try for the finer weight!

Wow what a week! I have worked and worked on the damn thing(podcast) and was so techno challenged it just was not gonna happen!! I got it up at last so you should see link in a day or two or per iTunes. I am posting a picture of my gifts in the exchange as well. I got my package from Jon in Malaysia! IWhat I did not know was that the beautiful bag she made was from a piece of fabric used in her wedding garments! It is gorgeous and I am going to post the link about her fabric. She also made the cord knots...hmmmmm a new skill to acquire. Knotting is also such an interesting skill! This picture does not do it justice, however. So I took another so that you can see. Trust me it is really nice!! Take a listen to my cast and stop by the show notes page for the links at http://ajtats.podbean.com/. The link for the fabric is it is an interesting story, thanks for sharing Jon http://www.ppak.kelantan.edu.my/culture/songket/songket.htm
