It has been so busy, for a couple of week I was at workshop with Amelia Kinkade in animal communicator. It was good to meet here again and it was a much better workshop then last time, all the particpant was rely ageer to learn and put aside all the «fear with I can’t doe this». When I talk with Amelia, I told here that I breed longhair zwerg dachshund and that my Kelly is pregnant, she then ask if it would be much trouble for me to pick here up and let Kelly be our teacher. It was just 15 min drives, so that was not any problem. It was intresting for me to have Kelly in the class and the students was rely good with the information they recived from Kelly. Else in the workshop there was a lot of WOW moment, I had mine also and it was a great workshop. If you want to learn how to comunicate with animal, look at Amelia’s webpage for the schedule. It is not so difficult that you think, Amelia’s method are very easy to use and she is a great teacher.
This weekend on Saturday it was a ordinary bloodtracking field trail in my dachshund club, I did not have any of my dogs attend. Since Kelly is the only one that are trained, but are not allowed to join since she is now 5 weeks due in here pregnancy. But one of my puppi buyer was there with his dog Ricco, that is a puppie from Ellie and Charlie’s litter. Ricco did it very well, hi got 1 price with Honor Price, way to goe Ricco and Yngve. Now they need one more 1.price to gain the Working Champion, think they are going to a new bloodtracking filed trail this weekend, fingers crossed 😀
Here are some photos of the little lad and with his owner Yngve:
I have also been dyeing some New Zeeland wool tops, for some strange reason they fall a little apart in the tops. So therefore I sell them out to 10% discount. I still like the colors even if they are maybe a little special, time will tell if some of my customers like them ore not 😛
Have also done some spinning, well I have spinning a lot more then this baby alpaca & angora blend. But it was the time to take the photos 😛
On the spinning wheel right now it is merino&tencel from Chameleon colorworks fiber of the month, I am also finish with the Bamboo caribbean that May want to buy to here daughter. I am taken it with me this evening to see if she like the finish product. After spinning 100% bamboo, I definitely tell you that it will not be my favorite fiber to spin having it as a blend I love the bamboo, but not pure bamboo.
Doe I knit? Yes, I doe, but forget to take photos, bummer 😀 The Pretty as a Peacock shawl I am finish I am halfway in Chart E. But then I got distracted because a certain DVD came in the mail box; Elizabeth Zimmermann’s Baby Surprice Jacket. So know I am knitting my first BSS, will take photos soon, promise, lol.
And they who have told that EZ pattern are a little bit difficult to understand, for a first time knitter of here pattern, they have right. Without this DVD and this excellent website, I could not have knitted this jacket without the help. Ore well, I am not finish yet, so we can talk about that issue when I am finish 😛
