Suttons Bay Fall Art Walk

Friday, October 24, 2008, the Art Walk. Ingrid Zotter was our featured fiber artist. Pictures are not that great. Sorry, Ingrid. As her knitted garments were amazing. Besides, with her New Zealand accent, what do you expect? They teach them to knit when they are still wearing knickers. (That is the expression, isn't it?)

She brought in doilies, shawls, vests, sweaters .....See the one with tea cups? The back of that sweater has a tea pot. Cute.

And here is my favorite landlord in the whole wide world. That is Joyce, yakking away. Can't remember if I have mentioned it, but for those of you who have not been here in person, we rent our space from Bayside Salon, where they have manicures, pedicures, facials, and fantastic hair stylists. Not to mention that all of them are wonderful ladies.

This is Dorte's 14 yr. old daughter, Erika, the bride of a corpse. She is on her way to an early Halloween party. Dorte is one of those wonderful hair stylists, manicurist, and pedicurist.
She moved here from Denmark many moons ago. Had to be love.

We had a great time.


Pat came in wearing this fun sweater. She knit it out of the Shibui Merino Alpaca and it is for her daughter-in-law in Oregon. I told Pat she could forget to take it with her to Portland and leave it here for us.

Stacy came in wearing this hat. It is her pattern and she knitted it out of the Autunno.

Isn't it cute?
We will be offering this pattern as soon as Susan gets it to us. Susan designed it after I told her I wanted a 3 button wrap that had a cable. And voila! How wonderful to have a designer on staff.

Kate is wearing her Broken Rib Vest made out of the Harlequin yarn and knitting one for her hubby out of the Elegant Merino.

And here I am wearing my Bea Arthur rib warmer. I love, love it.

Jacki finished this amazing lace top for her daughter, Ingrid. She used Naturally Dawn, a bamboo yarn and the pattern, Oriel Lace Blouse, from Interweave Knits Summer 2007. I have watched Jacki work her way through this blouse and she has done an amazing job. I am sure that there were many times she was ready to throw it into the trash, but look what her preserverance brought her. This is truly a work of love from a mother to her daughter.
