High Fiber—Out With the New, in With the Old?

Woven scarf finished.

Done blocking and ready to wrap and give. (Watch after Christmas for photos of the gift items I made other than the rabbits. The kids don't read my blog yet, so I could show those.)…

High Fiber—Happy Endings

This week brought this wonderful book into my life, Tudor Roses (2013 edition) by Alice Starmore.

It's a reworking of the 1998 book of the same name, but with the sweaters…

High Fiber—Back to Whatever is "Normal"

Lynda has finished her Dogwood Blossoms!

She's the first one in our group of four or so to finish it. She wore it to our Common Threads meeting on Thursday. Mine is close to finished (has been for a long time), and I plan to get it done during the Ravellenic Games. 

Here is the…

High Fiber— Holiday Fun, Part 1

We had a great Christmas visit in Wisconsin.

It was a white Christmas, and when it wasn't too cold, we had some play time.

The presents were lovely. For example, here's my Fabric Haul, part one. (More coming during a shopping trip to Kokomo/Indianapolis.)…

High Fiber—Ready for Christmas!?

Soren's Green Pastures cardigan is progressing nicely. It should be ready for Christmas or shortly after. 

It doesn't look too different from the same stage of Daphne's, although it's a size smaller. …

High Fiber—Happy New Year!

Wishing everyone a very Happy New Year!

Christmas was good, but my birthday, which started at a few minutes after 10:00 PM, which was a few minutes after midnight in Florida, where I was born many, many years ago, sucked! Well, this was supposed to be the "Big 70." It was, actually 70, but it was by far the worst birthday of my life, if you don't…

High Fiber—Prelude to Christmas.

I can't believe that a week from today will be Christmas Eve!

The realization is sinking in, though. We had Sundance volunteer sign-up on Monday, in preparation for the festival in January. Another reminder was holiday parties have been taking place with greater frequency. It's great to see old friends and relatively new but very special friends as…

High Fiber—Finish WIPs and UFOs

This week I'm frantically finishing up some projects that have to be done for Christmas or before. Remember Rocky's sweater, started last week?



 I wanted him to have a nice one for the Christmas season to replace the old acrylic sweater he had been wearing around the house in the winter. This was a quick knit, using Swish worsted in "Hollyberry." You can find the yarn …

High Fiber--Family and Friends...and Birthday!

What a Christmas it has been! How wonderful to have family around you with it's accompanying chaos!

Daphne's BSJ is perfect; just big enough to be able to last for a while, but still small enough to wear now! The quilt was a big hit, too! They loved the colors and the label with the photo of their little…

Really High Fiber Fest!

Merry Christmas, everyone! Here's this year's Christmas card:

 

 

This is the earth as viewed from moon orbit on December 25, 1968.

Merry Christmas!

To all the knitters and spinners at the Knitting Community: Merry Christmas, and I hope you have a great extended weekend with friends, family, knitting and spinning!





Our DS2 is visiting. Saturday morning he and DH went snowshoeing with our pups, Rocky and Sunny.





Here's what it looked like at our party Saturday night. The cute guy in the tuxedo is my DH! We had a nice time,… Continue
