Self Portrait in Aqua-Turquoise-Teal Yarns

Saturday, October 31st, 2009

I taught two classes at Rae’s Yarn Boutique on Saturday. I took a lot of yarns along in my knitting bag, some because they are part of current projects, some because they are planned for projects to start yet this week, and a few because I needed yarns for my students to practice upon.

I had seven versions of turquoise in one knitting bag. Here they are.


(For the record, I was equal opportunity for fiber content. This assortment includes wool, alpaca, silk, cotton, linen, bamboo, nylon, mohair and angora. I did have 2 other yarns in my bag… one multicolored and one magenta. Yes, I’m a bit biased in the color department! Turquoise makes me happy.)

I think this says something about me. I hope it’s good.

Halloween Dinner/Music at Altu’s

Saturday, October 31st, 2009

heftonesafricanclothingI will have a full and wonderful day on Saturday, Halloween. I teach 2 classes at Rae’s… Maxi ZigBagZ and First-Time Toe-Up Socks. And then?

Brian and I are singing at Altu’s Ethiopian Cuisine from 6:30-8:30pm. I expect to have a lovely time.

The place is friendly and warm, it’s family oriented so you can bring kids if you like. The food is incredible… I ate Ethiopian for 3 weeks when I went to Africa, at everyone’s home and good restaurants.

You didn’t ask me… but Altu cooks better. She’s an artist with food. She loves food and her customers, and it shows in her product.

Please consider joining us. If you are not in town, you can listen to our music on our Fabulous Heftones website. We have a lot of music there, for free, in MP3 or OGG formats.

Whatever you do, have a pleasant, safe and happy October 31. Don’t eat too much corn syrup!!!
