High Fiber--Frantically Finishing and iPad Fanatic Fun!

This week has been busy! (So what else is new?)

There are presents to wrap and send off, more knitting and quilting to do (some of which I can't show you) and other preparations to make. We took the time to dress up the pups and mug for the camera, though.

The annual get together for the…

The snow is still falling down! I have made an entire hat and am now working on a scarf to match!

and now SNOW!!

Today the snow is falling, falling, falling..... covering the ground with a blanket of wintery white. Hundreds of thousands of snowflakes, each one different and unique, the wonder of snow, tiny pieces of art floating down from the sky.…

It snowed!

It snowed last night and it looks so pretty! I am still such an Iowa girl at heart and it never seems like Christmas to me until it snows. It is only supposed to be 2-4 inches today so it is nothing like what they are getting in Iowa but it is enough to see it falling and accumulate!

On another note, I got my latest KP order yesterday!…

to the rain...

The rain is gently falling on the dry ground outside my house.

I am snug and warm inside with all my wonderful fiber-y things, a cup of Earl Gray, some beautiful music and my spinning wheel. The spinning wheel that has been sorely neglected for too long, today I will remedy that... Gods in His heaven and all's right with my world...…

Before felting:…

Hi everyone!

Starting with my first blog post here, I will tell you a bit about myself... I learned how to crochet when I was 9 from a neighbor, and that was the start of my love of all things fiber related! Over the years I have also learned to knit, weave and spin. I have dabbled in basket making, beadwork, sewing, quilting and tatting. I love history and am now making historic reproduction textiles. I started creating items for the public in 2000 when I started my home business…

This and that

This is Lydia's first completed project. She was sooo excited! She has started many projects but not finished them. Now she is making a k3p3 scarf for her brother who is in the military. She misses him so much.

And below is what my kitchen cabinets look like now. I am really not very creative when it comes to decorating but I dreamed this and I think it turned out looking cute.…

Hooking progress! Dino almost done! (UPDATED WITH NEW COLOR CHOICE!)

I'm almost done with my first dino! Finally, after weeks of being overly busy and sick, devoting nearly every free moment of time to hooking has paid off! Here's what the head and body look like now!

What does everyone think? Does it look like a dino? My mother-in-law and boyfriend say it looks a little like a porpoise! It'll look more like the…

Raspberry Coffee Cake and Shepard Pie

It has been really cold here in MN. For the last week I have been working like crazy. I had the day off today. So I made the most of it. I met a friend at the local bookstore coffee shop and we sat and knitted for a couple of hours. It was very pleasant. When I came home I decided to actually fix a dinner instead of having a bowl of cereal. I made Shepard Pie which is so unbelievablely easy. I was also very tasty. I made a Raspberry Coffe Cake for breakfast. Since I leave so early in the… Continue

Thank y'all for the support!

Thanks to all who support that it doesn't matter how you get there, just so long as you get there!

Thinking about frogging a 2-@-once socks that I've got on needles to make some that work with the colorway! Also working on a circular yoke cable top -- yeah, I frogged two sweaters to do this one! I am actually enjoying the pattern, and feel good about the progress, so this one may actually get finished! I'm also working on convertible mittens…

It's Packing Time!

Waa! Hooo! I just finished the last present on my list! So that makes 12 coasters, felted, five hats, ribbed, two pairs of i-Mitts, one Pi shawl! And yes I was humming the tune to 12 Days of Christmas as I typed that. Now I have to wrap them, pack them in a box and ship them down to my sister's for Christmas. It sounds impressive, but keep in mind that I did start all of this in August.

My father is the only one whose gift did not involve knitting. (I'm giving him a individual sized cheese… Continue

It's Been a While

Hello everyone,

My goodness, it's been SO long since I last posted here!! I've missed you all!! I have kept posting on my other blog, but once things started to pick up with the wedding, I just didn't have the time to get over here as much. However, now that the wedding is over, (it went fantatic by the way) I seem to have a little more time on my hands to come over here and post. I've decided I'm going to do my best to keep this blog devoted to KP related items as that will…

My trip to Namaste Farms

I went to Namaste farms I have been communicating with Natalie on Raverly at

High Fiber--Elevating Knitting and Quilting to a Whole New Level!

The rush to finish projects is on! Here's the scarf just finished Saturday:

It's 100% alpaca, so should be nice and warm! It's for a family member who might see this, so I can't say, but I'll try to post a photo later on its new owner.

I have never made so many presents for friends and relatives as this…

Sock Journey 10

Hey sock knitters

Well, I am on my way again with my new adventure

This pattern is called "Robin Foot" I got this pattern off

of raverly. This pattern is more like a slipper boot than a sock.

The yarns I will be using is "Bernat Berella 4"

the colors are "Deep Forest Green and Black" and size 8 circulars needles.

This pattern seems exciting and I haven't been excited about a pattern in a long time.

So I am off to start my adventure.

9 Down 3 to go

Hey sockknitters

It has been a while but I am finally finish these socks

I am going to be honest with you I got that 2nd sock syndrome

I think the reason being is that the needles that I used were a size one.

First, it took to long to finish the foot and besides my fingers started to hurt

I am not use to knitting with needles this little.

But I guess this is a lesson to learn that I will try to avoid this…

Another quiet Saturday?

mmmm....probably not. I got home at 0650 this morning after taking hubby to a friends house so he could catch a ride to Springfield for a political meeting....glad it is him and not me! ~smile~ Filled the car with gas and got a cup of coffee so I could spend some nice quiet time on here BEFORE the 8 and 11 yo woke up. Opened the door to see them BOTH up and watching TV. Really??? I can't even get the 11 yo up before 7 during the school week to get ready for school on time!

But all I have… Continue
