Happy New Year Kids
We were so ‘on it’ with the Christmas newsletter except we had hurricane winds that completely shut down our little island on December 20th… WOW… what an event. Alas, you are getting that newsletter today. We were without power for seven days and three hours… but I really wasn’t counting 🙂 Then we had a ruptured water line that got fixed on New Year’s Eve, so all in all it wasn’t quite the restful holiday that any of us were hoping for. BUT… we are all well and groovin’ into the New Year.
Grant’s Mac ‘n’ Cheese
For the past two years my sweetheart, Grant, has been whipping up some pretty delicious lunches for our in-house workshops. We have been promising to share a few for some time… so here goes.
For years I have been wanting to make a mohair blankie with a mohair bouclé warp and weft… and finally… I’ve made two. Oh my goodness I can’t tell you how amazing they are. To hold one of these blankies is to hold a soft curly cloud. Cheryl (our ab-fab dyer) hand dyed the yarn in several soft neutral colours and then I went to town. I warped the way I demonstrate in the Online Guild Season 1 Episode 10 and it was oh so easy… the bouclé is easier to warp than brushed mohair. I used some heavier mohair bouclé as accents to divide the space. We’ve made a limited edition of this very special project…. just six kits of each colour way. Have a peek.
Thank you and best wishes
I just want to take a moment to thank you all for a fabulous year, so from everyone here at JST…… We wish you health, happiness, peace and joy.
