Weekend fun and more orchids

Saturday was spent doing a lot of spinning. Sunday was spent teaching intro to French Florals. Monday was spent day tripping in NYC on a bead and yarn crawl. I bought A LOT of beads... I also bought some yarn. But I need to take a break from the knitting because my hands are getting tingly.

Monkey while at Knit New York.

We introduced a newbie knitter to the joys of a yarn swift and ball winder and had many people come out back to find what the laughter was about. I'm exhausted so I left work at 5:30 today to come home, eat, do some beading and sleep. Beading consisted of finishing up the orange orchid here:
The orange is prototype 2. The white was prototype 1.

I think that I am actually happy with the result of prototype 2. The petal proportions are about right. I think I'll stare at the lip a little more to see if I like it. Also, those silver lined orange beads are a much better improvement over the pearl white. I think I also need to do some shading.

I think that they are both amazing. I hope that your hands feel better soon!
