Bowmaking Workshop in Pasedena yesterday

I taught 2 women to knit at yesterday's bowmaking gathering. Is knitting a survival skill? It is if you are freezing to death and need to know how to make sweaters, mittens and hats.
Then there are some photos of me with my new bow made by Richard Saffold and the last set of arrows I made.

Then there are some photos of the other archers at the event.

Walking Stick

Tomorrow at the bowmaking workshop I'll be working on my walking stick. I got the stave in Quartzsite for $10. I want to strip the bark off and then carve a face into the top part of it.

Update: I got so busy teaching knitting I never even got to work on my walking stick. All I did was take it out of the truck, then put it back in and bring it home.
