Tour de Fleece Dyeing

This year for the TdF, my challenge is to spin a boucle.  I read and watched Jacey Boggs do this in Spin Art, and really hope I can duplicate her efforts.

I am using two fibers – South African Fine (a Merino cross) as my core, and have some lovely mohair to use as my boucle.  I have some silk thread on order and it should be in time for the final plying. …

Less Bitch, More Stitch – An Introduction

Two months without sewing or knitting (head hammers the key board). My hands are always busy with something. Right now my dominant arm is broken and hand casted; making it hard to work or keep busy. At least I learned never to trust a GPS from the car rental companies.

Midwest Fiber and Folk Art Fair

Yesterday I met up with a fellow Knit Picks Community friend, Karen Pike, at the Midwest Fiber and Folk Art Fair. It was great to finally meet in person. There were so many vendor booths with many different art forms filled with interesting items. There were several that had live bunnies. One even had some baby ones and I got to hold one. They are so cute and cuddly.

We saw many different kinds of spindles including this large one.  (I thought of Cheryl…

Another day

Well it's another day in the life of knitting and I have been able to find a great number of times to knit!! The hand towel I blogged about before, become a tablet case before I was even done with the swatch, so I have now started that and it looks great!! I am hoping to have it done before our trip to ny in a couple weeks. I was trying to knit it in the round but it was just toooo tight . . . It was 15.5inches around on a 24" needle I think and I had pulled out part of the cable but it was soo… Continue
