I have a trial membership to typepad and have moved my blog to http://alumcreek.typepad.com/alum_creek/. It will most likely stay there. I am already really enjoying the features that typepad offers. Please update your links so you can find me.
See you there!

If I were to stop knitting the Iris Warp at this very moment and find a use for it, it would become....
I am so mad at my team partner, the Iris Wrap, that she has been fired and frogged. My new team member has been chosen. It will be Penny Royal from the latest issue of Knitter's. A temporary member, The Not Knit Around Scarf, will be filling in until Penny Royal is up to speed.
The details of the estrangement are not necessary, lets just say that the team members--the Iris Wrap and Jenni--were in over their heads.

On the way to the coast a few weeks ago we stopped off at Goliad State Park, where a historical Spanish mission still stands.
It was nice surprise to find a whole area of the mission complex dedicated to fiber arts! Here are a few pictures:
This first one is off some various fiber implements. I was especially interested in the spindles on the right.
This one is my favorite. Each one of these skeins is dyed using natural dyes. They are in direct sunlight for most of the day and have been there for about 5 years and haven't lost their great colors.
Also, here is a loom and some woven fabrics...
And some spinning wheels.
