I am hoping that this blog will help you and me experience the craft of crochet as well as knitting. During times of silence or turmoil, crochet and knitting continuously help me quiet my mind at my own pace, enabling me to find my center. I have patterns for sale in PDF Format, you can find them at their own Pages at the top menu. The posts are classified By labels which are at the far right, all the way down. We are the Borg! I think it will bring Order into Chaos!

Bi-Tone HoneyComb & Photography

Our Fierce Leader and Organizer WonderMike, here we are ready for introductions. The Dumas Bay Center was an excellent choice. Whether you got a lift from a friend or took the Express Shuttle, it was close to a lot of places we wanted to go.
The prices as always were fantastic, it was very hard to pick and choose, but you had too , lol. We have a trivia game and when you guess the game you get a chance to pick up a gift from the Table.
My first class was Bi-Tone Honeycomb by James Herbison from http://fibrealive.typepad.com/ who has his own yarn store in New Zealand. His great shop http://www.joyofyarn.co.nz/ is online and you can get possum wool!!! I have known James for over 5 years by Internet friendship, so it was nice to finally meet him and give him a big hug. What a nice guy and he comes with lots of New Zealand Candy!

The bi-tone honeycomb is a beautiful texture that you can use for a sweater , jumper or a bag or even a cushion cover. I wanted to learn that for such a long time and got the opportunity to do so, Thanks James and MFKR.
I took this class last year and it was a hit this year as well. Hand spindling there is Michael, Kent , James, WonderMike Teaching and Keith.
The Guys were just hanging out and chatting , getting to know each other and here enjoying the great meals that the Dumas Bay Center prepared for us with chef Bob. We had a great day. Please stop by later on, I will have day two of the retreat, hopefully today.
