High Fiber—Done With Winter, For Now....

The weather has warmed up a bit, and our bulbs are emerging.

We also have daffodils, as do our neighbors. The ski resorts closed after Sunday's operation. Soon they will gear up for taking mountain bikers up the hill to ride down. DGD1 brought home her snowboard and boots…

High Fiber—Short and Sweet, and To the Point

This week saw the center of Pine Burr quilt finished.



Not too much else got done this week while I worked to put the blocks together. However, after all the work to paper-piece the blocks and larger cornerstones, it felt good to get it put together. This quilt is going to be way too big for my design…

High Fiber—Nonfat Jelly Rolls?

Well, some of them included fats (fat quarters)...cut into 2.5" strips. But you could make all these with Jelly Rolls, the non-fattening kind.





Members of Vintage Stitchers have been making quilts from Pam and Nicky Lintott's…

It was a real Snow Job, and that's no Blarney!

It all started not quite two weeks ago when I decided to take a look at what my friends on Ravelry were up to.  It had been a while since I had done that and thought I'd enjoy seeing what others had been working on.  It didn't take long before I came across this little beauty by NoKnitSherlock and fell-in-love!  You could say the 'dye was cast'.

I was very curious what she meant…

High Fiber—One FO (Finished Object) and Other Projects

The Brick Cardi is done, and it fits.



(I need to get another photo of it, as my shirt is peeking out below the top button, and I cut off the shoulders in this photo.)



Fresh off the needles, it had a nice bath in some Euclan, and then I pinned it on…

Oh dear, where did the time go?!

Last time I blogged here, I was reporting that we had a new home on the horizon - nw I can report that all went well, and we've been in the new place for eight months!!  I really do need to make more of an effort to keep up with the blogging lark ;)

So, here's my latest attempt to keep in touch, and hopefully it will be more successful than last time [and the time before!] 

This year, I have a list.

This year, I'm going to cross things off my list, and really concentrate…

Lent 2015

It's that time of the year again - Lent.

In the past few years, I've found lent really lovely in the run up to Easter, especially with the online prayer shawl group I'm in usually making a KAL / CAL for prayer shawls. It helps me remember what this season is about, remember the word and promise God gave me for the prayer shawl ministry (of one, at the time) at our church, and pass on the love that God put into my heart to share around.

This year, I've signed up for one prayer…

Holiday Stash Knit Down

I actually made some set and achieved some knitting goals that past holiday season. I managed to knit down the stash by some where in the neighborhood of 21 skeins of yarn. This effort produced a plague of alligator scarves (7), 3 fuzzy red keyhole scarves, one Bama colored scarf, 1 fuzzy red hat, I pair of fingerless mitts, half foot socks, 1pair of fuzzy red leg warmers, and one cap-sleeved, seamless sweater. I used no patterns for the mitts, half socks, and anything that was made from the… Continue
