Hi Shawn,
I see that you are working with the yarns that we collaborated on. How are they working for you? I especially would like to know if the dragonfly and cocoon yarns are easy or challenging to work with. The colors look great and I can't wait to see the finished piece. If I can figure out how to link my blog to this page, do you mind if I point people in your directon?
Also, can't wait until we can meet at one of the Buddhist retreats. Best, Beth
