Great book I got from Library

I just got this great book from the Library. Its The Knitter's Book of Yarn by Clara Parkes. I think I'm going to actually have to buy this book. I know Knitpicks has it in softcover. I don't know if I'd actually prefer the hardcover version, which is the one I got from the library.



Anyway, the projects in it (and there are 40 of them) are so lovely and diverse. The designers are actually people I've heard of, instead of all by the same designer, or by a bunch of people… Continue

Corn Socks

I just finished making a pair of socks from corn, Cornucopia Kottage. Can't say I really like them, the texture and the color just aren't happening for me. Its more of a matte color which is rather dull. As for texture its not as soft as I normally use. I thought I'd give it a try but unfortuneately its not something I would buy again. I also used a pattern which isn't too bad but the heel is designed differently and I had trouble with holes in the sides of the heel. You YO on the first stitch… Continue

Yet More Snow

It snowed here again on Friday and Saturday. I think we picked up about 4 more inches. Today is supposed to be sunny and around 40. I sure hope so.







I did have a productive week. I finished the Baby Genius Burp Cloth. I also made a Baby Kimono. I just have to sew it up and add a border. I am trying to decide between and I-cord border and a single crochet border. I have used Sugar'n Cream Lavender Ice. I am going to use hot purple… Continue

Naked Sheep!

Whoo-hoo, the sheep have been sheared! Another year has gone by without me accidently killing our shearers with my futile attempts at coffee making. I really do wish I could do a better job of coffee making for their sake, but I wouldn't recognize a good cup of coffee if it was made by the best barista in the world.

Wasn't sure shearing was going to happen, woke up to snow on the ground and possibly still coming down, hard to tell in a Montana "breeze" whether it is snowing or just… Continue

Springtime - a new beginning



Well, this is something new for me. I've never had a blog page before, so this will be an experience for everyone as they travel on this journey of learning more new technology.



I've read blog pages before (mostly knitting blogs) and have enjoyed most of them. Mine will not be a knitting blog. (I don't knit fast enough for a daily or even weekly update on projects! ;op ) THis iwll be more of a weekly update on me and my little family,… Continue

Second Post

As I was tucking the ends of my yarn into the back of my apricot top, somehow I did something wrong-I now have a dime-size hole in it. How? I haven't a clue. I spent several hours trying to fix it with no good results. It's going to have to go to Loom With A View and see if Betsy or someone there can fix it for me for not too much money. I've had this project hanging around for 3 years now; maybe two, maybe four...seems an eternity. It's going to be sleeveless top because not enough yarn to… Continue

Hello!

Spring looks like it has finally arrived here in Iowa. It is still a little chilly, but the sun is out and rain is predicted instead of snow and ice. It is wonderful to see some green finally happening. i noticed some tulip leaves popping up through the ground the other day. It has been a long winter!



Even with winter, I was not able to knit as much as I like to--too many other obligations to take care of first. I have babies to "grand-mother" and they come first ( see… Continue

About me

Have been in Sun City Arizona for the last two months, and we are getting ready to head back to Colorado. I have finished the front and back of the sweater you see me knitting in the picture, and have the sleeves started so that I can knit while going back. I am eager to "get 'er done" so I can get back to knitting socks!

We also are awaiting the arrival of our third grandchild. She should be born any minute in Kansas City. Might only be home long enough to change clothes and knitting… Continue

Stocking #1 done

My first Christmas stocking is completed. I am somewhat happy with it, and know the second one will go more smoothly. I am thinking about doing the afterthought heel option instead of the short rows. I'm not sure exactly how it will look since there is no picture of that option. Guess I will have to get out my sock knitting bibles.

We are on Day #3 of kitchen… Continue

First time to dye

I just dyed some Knit picks sock yarn with my left over Easter egg dye. How fun!!!! I got carried away with the number of colors. I was just going to use four colors, but they looked so pretty......... Wet the yarn first in lukewarm water. I put newspaper then plastic wrap down on my kitchen floor. I put a hank of yarn which I had lengthen over the wrap, then painted the dye on the hank with a paint bush- making sure I colored all the strands. Don't let the dye pool. Use just enough to saturate… Continue

Getting started.

So I am new to blogging. Though it has been around now for some time. All my friends are doing it. Which doesn't mean that if my friends jumped off a bridge I would too.



I just peeked out my office window and it SNOWING! I thought it was supposed to be spring. Well, don't put away the winter sweaters just yet. No, wait, now it is just rain. Was that the five minute rule?



Back to blogging. I thought this might bring into focus for myself, just how much knitting and spinning… Continue

The last of winter?, perhaps! Probably not!

My first blog post. I'm new to the Knit Picks Community. I'm new to blogging too but felt compelled to start this blog. Who knows, it might just be fun. I'm going into work late today. It's now snow covered again, having witness another 5 inches or more of soggy snow last night. Our eldest daughter was in a car accident late in the evening. Slippery roads caused a young girl to lose control of her car and come left of center, creating an almost head on collision. Both the girls are brusied but… Continue

Las Vegas

Well here I am in Las Vegas! I am staying to the lovely Palace Station Resort and Casino. I would only give it like 3 stars though. The desk lamp doesnt work, the shower sprays water everywhere and they CHARGE for internet! But the food is good, its a fun place to be and the swimming pools are nice.



I did get to knit by the pool. I worked on my Fetching gloves with blue Debbie Bliss 100% Cashmere. The pattern is a little tricky where you are supposed to cable at the beginning of a… Continue

My first blog post

I never thought I'd would write in a blog. I can't even keep up on my journaling, much less write about stuff in a blog. But here goes.

Today was a pretty good day. It was sunny and fairly warm. I went to Bldg. #19 with Kathy around 11 a.m. Mostly browsed, but did manage to get a Battenburg shower curtain for Kathy for her upcoming birthday on April 2nd. She loves Battenburg. I had been waiting for 3 days for Conlin's pharmacy to deliver a raised toilet seat and frame. The driver called my… Continue

Knitting, Shearing, Anticipation!

It feels like the octopus is moving on, thank heavens. I can almost breathe again. Breathing is a good thing.

I know I am supposed to be gearing up for shearing, but knitting and anticipation over the arrival of my latest Knit Picks order is holding my brain hostage (okay, okay, I am a willing hostage) and I just am not ready to give over any space to shearing, shearers, and what to cook for them. I am debating oven-fried chicken, a crock pot roast, and meatloaf with LOTS of onion and a… Continue

As promised...progress pic

Here is a picture of my progress with the Cornicopia socks:




I love the spiraling in the pattern, and the colors. And I think these would also make great wrist warmers! I'll be filing this pattern away for just such a project in the future.
