Six hour class on Russian Lace. Taught by the expert on Orenburg shawls, Galina Khmeleva. It was very interesting and I enjoyed it throughly. She has a heavy accent, which I loved, and told stories that made the day feel like you were transported out of California and into Russia.
I now want to become a lace expert. Yesterday I wanted to become a cable expert. Tomorrow is sock class, I will I'm sure want to become a sock expert. I'm fickle, yet predictable.
The Market is very overwhelming. I try to carry on, despite the temptation lurking around every bend. There are lots of bends to lurk around too, it is huge! I found some potential lace shawls disguised as yarn today at lunch time. They give you 2 hours for lunch, just in case you want to pop in to the Market for a spot. Or skein. Nice of them, really.
Tonight is the fashion show and dinner. I will try to take my camera, but they don't allow photography in the market, but maybe they will at the show.
Anyhow, wish you all were here with me. Spending money is more fun with a friend (or sister or mom). I really need someone to steer me away from the purple and green. When I step back and look at the photos it is funny. Did anyone else notice it?
