About Me:
Fiber fruitcake et al. I love to sew, knit, crochet, and weave what is left. I am going to learn to spin on the drop spindle and it's all Peggy's fault.
What's your Ravelry ID (if you have one)? (

Where have I been?

Posted on February 14, 2011 at 7:05pm 5 Comments

Where did I go? Hm...Short version: Got puppy, puppy knocked over full cup of coffee onto laptop. Laptop NOT happy, made sphfttt noises and smoked a bit and then went silent. Mommy decided 598$ repair bill could wait until she could afford it. (still not there yet) went back to work for Fire Dept and private ambulance as a medic and forgot to play with friends here. Bad Bad for fun time.…

I only got one shot of it blocking. The color is off because the light in the room is terrible and it is on a sage green sheet. I enjoyed finding all of the knitting typos when I had it all stretched out with the blocking wires, which I LOVE to death. Talk about time saving.…


Stitch markers

Posted on February 25, 2010 at 7:23am 17 Comments

So I have been disappointed with the commercially available stitch markers. Fine then, make your own. Ok. Done. Now here is the question that I pose. How many should a set include? I just finished a shawl that I used 9 - 14 markers at any given time. I made enough to match because I am weird that way. A friend requested a set for sock knitting and as I have yet to actually complete a pair, I made her a set of 8. She was happy as she normally only gets 4-5 in sets she buys. Soooo... whatcha… Continue

Back seat driving is fun too! Note to self: don't drink coffee before Dave takes you up. White one with red nose and wingtips and tw-52 call sign. What fun! You CAN knit while… Continue

Hi Sharon
Well for my fingerless mitts I used Lambs Pride worsted and #6 needles. The pattern I used was written fro large hands, I ended up altering the size for a better fit for me. I have a pair of the convertible mittens started but need to start over because the yarn feels too thin. Here is a pic of the Lamb Pride ones. Let me know if you want the patterns for the fingerless and/or convertibles.
Have a great Christmas

Thanks so much for your advice. I love hearing from more experienced knitters and other adults - it seems that I get along better with people older than me than I do girls my own age! ^-^ It's great to hear someone say the exact same thing my mom always does - keep asking questions. I guess that means she's probably right!

Have you been to Yarn Craven in Perrysburg? It's very nice - don't know about spinning, tho.

What do you need for spinning? Roving? I'll check at Fiberworks - I know they do spinning with drop spindle and wheel. The other shops I'm aware of don't spin, I don't think - there's Yarn and Needle in Centerville, Woolly Bully in Springboro (both S. of Dayton), Stitching Post in Centerville is a mega-sewing shop that carries some yarn - at least they did when I was there last, Busy Beaver here in Beavercreek (lots of yarn but most other crafts, too), and Yarnique in Fairborn - next to WPAFB - they have all organic yarns.
