My monthly purchase this month consisted of some stuff from Dharma Trading. I totally fell in love with the silk scarf dyeing that I did at the Texas Retreat so I went and ordered a few pieces of raw silk to dye.
While I was there I noticed that they had some leather and leather paint.
I bought these items to fix the three-panel screen that my aunt painted for me since the leather strips holding the panels together have harden and cracked. Now I have to get painting.
My order for silk reeling equipment also came in so I am ready to start my silk work.
Knitting - Finished my painted tam in one piece and started the painted tam in wedges; finished knitting the sleeves on my celtic cable sweater and joined the sleeves to the sweater; and frogged my abalone sweater as well as the teal shalom sweater. I also started the knit community college project. My progress has been great on the Less is More sweater as well.
Spinning - continued spinning the merino/angora fiber that I got from Jude on my Malcolm Fielding spindle. I also contemplated what I would spin next on my wheel and have not yet made any decisions.
Weaving - I finished weaving the color and weave dishtowels. I got three towels out of the pattern and have enough yarn to make at least three more.
Organizing and Purging
I sold my Strauch Petite drum carder to Suzanne at my spin group. I also sold a rosewood russian spindle and bowl set to a fellow Raveler. The Majacraft Suzie Pro also found a new home with Shelly.
