Are you going to Oakland?

I've been trying to finish up a bunch of projects - some for publications, some for yarn companies, some for my classes at the Knit & Crochet Show in Oakland in September. I'm teaching 6 classes, and even though I've taught 5 of them before, I always try to add things to them (I call it fine-tuning), and make more samples. So I've been writing up my new class (Crochet Secrets) and getting the others fine-tuned. I heard from Offinger, recently, and was told that two of my classes in Oakland - Design Your Own Stitch Pattern, and Pattern Writing School - were in danger of being canceled if more people don't sign up for them. I premiered these two classes in New Hampshire in July, and they were well received. This is just one comment for Design Your Own Stitch Pattern "This class really encourages you to expand thinking beyond just following the given stitch pattern." And this was from Pattern Writing School - "Great information! Great attention to detail and very thorough." I enjoyed teaching these classes, and hope that more people sign up for them in advance. Don't wait until you get to Oakland!

I've also been working with some new yarns, and will take some more pictures and post the swatches very soon. I'm really excited about what I've been working with! Stay tuned!

What yarn do you think this is?
