It’s almost like Christmas. But I just couldn’t wait that long, so I ordered a couple of new playthings. The first thing is a ukulele. I know…. how 70’s can you get. But I’ve tried to learn to play the banjo (that was WAY more complicated than it looks!). Next I tried a guitar. Better, but too big to hold. Next I tried a kalimba. It’s an African thumb piano. It’s really fun to play but rather restrictive in the types of music to sing along.Now I’ve signed up for a class at our local community college to learn to play the ukulele! Duffy’s not too sure about it.My other new toy is a Hokett mini tapestry loom. It’s so Cute! Other projects include a finished scarf. It’s the Feathers and Fans pattern knitted with my hand spun baby alpaca. Another pair of socks is on the needles. Pat saw this yarn at my favorite LYS, Grandma’s Spinning Wheel in Tucson, AZ and thought it would make great cycling socks. You will be able to see my feet for sure!I’m demonstrating inkle loom weaving along with rigid heddle weaving at the Western Heritage Program for elementary school students and set this up for the kids to try.And lastly, the Sheep tapestry is growing again. I’ll be adding the heads soon.
