April 2012 Blog Posts (9)


Thank you so very much for the lovely comments to my last entry.  I really appreciate the warm thoughts.  Knitters (and crocheters) are the nicest people.  Whenever I take my knitting to work with me or when I go to the park, lots of people look as they walk by.  But I really like when other crafters come up to talk. 

The scarf is still progressing along.  I'm at three feet now, I think I'm going to go for six.  Any longer and people will start to think I'm trying to impersonate…

My first blog post ever.

I have never had a blog before so this is all very new to me but I feel a need to express my current knitting frustrations so I figured I would do it here. :0)I feel like I have put all this time and effort into this baby blanket for a good friend of mine and it is like my second full project and it's going okay it's just that the yarn a choose is terrible. I have so many concerns about what it is going to do when I wash it. Not mind u this yarn is of course not a knit picks yarn because I… Continue

High Fiber—Back To Normal?

The two days it took to get home from Indiana provided great knitting time!


I made good progress on the Dogwood Blossoms sweater, about 1" of the pattern. I put it on two circs, so you can see…

Been a while

I'm not a very good blogger.  I've tried several times, but it always seems to go by the wayside.  Well, here's another attempt. 

Over a year and half ago, on a trip home for Christmas, my Mom and Dad gave me a new knitting bag (I'd been keeping my projects in plastic grocery bags) and a needle holder, a book, and a HUGE skein of Red Heart Super Saver.  Ten months later, my Mom was diagnosed with brain cancer.  While she was going through her treatments and getting worse, I picked up…

High Fiber—Traveling Stitches

Yes, we're traveling again. We had a nice visit with DS1 and DDIL1 before heading back to Utah.

DDIL1 and I visited the Little Scrap Quilt Shop, in Kokomo, Indiana. We found a nice selection of fabrics and notions, and learned that they will arrange classes of your choice if you line up two or more friends to take the class with you.…

High Fiber—Bye, bye, Babies!

Time to say goodbye to little Zachary:

After the first few nights, he settled into a nice schedule of his own, only waking his parents at 3:00 AM, Mommy to feed and Daddy to change. He has long periods in the daytime when he's awake and alert, and seems unusually responsive to people. He clearly enjoys interacting with his grandparents.

And goodbye to Miss Daphne, too, of course:…

High Fiber—Waiting for Baby

I'm knitting little things:

It's a pair of socks for me, out of Knit Picks Stroll Glimmer in "Fiji." The Dogwood Blossoms sweater is too difficult to work on with Miss Daphne in the room. She had to take each ball of yarn out of the bag, and a couple of times pulled the sts out of my needles. The socks are easier to hold onto and walk around…
