Marl? Comin' Right Up!

Look what arrived in yesterday’s mail.

See that blurb in the upper right hand corner? That’s my article about my shawl “3 X 3 = 10”. It was originally scheduled to be published in Spin Off last spring, but the editors moved it to the fall issue. It’s good to see it in print!

Here are a few of my photos of the shawl, taken in February 2010 (as explanation of the snow in the background). My friend, Vivienne K is the model:

And here is a picture of the 10 yarns that I spun for the shawl (again with snow in the background):

I do like marl yarns. I like spinning them, and I like knitting with them. And I’ll be teaching “Spinning Marl Yarns” a couple times in the near future. Next week, I’m headed to the Wisconsin Sheep & Wool Festival in Jefferson, Wisconsin. I’ll be teaching the marl workshop on Sunday, September 11.

And in October, I’m headed to Rhinebeck, New York to teach workshops at the NYS Sheep & Wool Festival.
I’ll be teaching the marl workshop there on Saturday, October 15.

Care to join me?


  1. CONGRATULATIONS AMY!!! I am privileged and honored to have such a knowledgeable and famous fiber artist as a friend and teacher. I'm glad Spin-Off finally got it in print!

  2. Congrats! That's very exciting!! :D

  3. Lovely! I may have to go out and buy a copy of Spin-Off for the pattern-- I have a collection of shetland roving that would be perfect for this shawl.
