Where are we?

Wednesday, August 13, 2008


Olivia-Lee invited me to join your happy group after I "met" her in the Secret of the Stole iii group. I see a few familiar "faces" on the side bar, but an introduction is in order...

I'm Channon, aka: Chan. I live east of Charlottesville, but belong to the River City Knitters. I knit (and knit!), am enjoying crochet more these days after a couple of classes with Edie Eckman in June, and I finally ordered a wheel a couple of days ago, after taking spinning lessons in the late winter/early spring. I blog almost daily, sometimes more than one post per day, but not all things blogged are fiber-related.

Works in progress? Well, I swore I would tackle one project at a time, and I think that lasted a few weeks. (I also swore I'd never spin, so I should quit swearing.) Currently, I am enjoying the last skein of my Voyager stole in Debbie Bliss Alpaca Silk DK. I also have cast on for the Blue Jay shawl from Wrapped in Comfort, in an alpaca laceweight custom-dyed by a friend, but I can't seem to stop working with the Debbie Bliss! There are also a few other projects in bags - the River City Knitter's stole KAL, the Bigfoot shawl from Wrapped in Comfort, and the Lace Ribbon Scarf, which is my travel project when I'm not more interested in something else. There's also a crocheted cap languishing, and I have three (!!) hats to knit for the Ravelympics. I think that's it.

Hi Chan - Welcome!!

Welcome. Tickled to see your post. I was just talking to Cat and she said you were in River City. I should be, but I procrastinate. I have the wheel and the bunnies and some roving, but I don't spin yet. Perhaps you all can get me better directed in that area.
