High Fiber—Fiber Obsessed

The Mary Tudor is coming along.

The first sleeve is finished. I think the sleeve might be too long, but I can't tell until I block it and sew it in. Even though I started at the cuff, it's easy to lengthen or shorten a sleeve. I'll take out one round about where I want to start the cuff by cutting the…

High Fiber—Better Late Than Never?

Apologies for the late post. I found myself with my blog post written and no internet when the time came.

 

We left Tuesday of last week to head to Moab, parts south and lower elevations to spend more than a week in our little trailer. DH really enjoyed his Nook while we were traveling. We…

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 Deux

From Wisconsin, we drove 10 hours to Peru, Indiana, just north of Kokomo to visit DS1 and DDIL1.

DS1 and DDIL1 had her grandkids to visit, so it was a full house, with four adults, three kids and four dogs. The kids have grown up a lot since we saw them last. We visited the library in Peru to get…

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—Spooky Times, Good Times.

The scarf I wove for my friend Rebecca is finished.

I hope to be able to give it to her this week. Rebecca let all the Vintage Stitchers go through the bins of fat quarters she wanted to unload, and we each came away with a pile of very nice quilting fabric. Later, she gave me a big…

High Fiber—Cloudy Days; Bright Colors, Kids and Pets

Have I been busy? Isn't it Labor Day? The placemats are coming along:

The yellow is the center of the placemat. I'm using Dishie worsted in Fiesta RedConchClementine and Creme Brûlée, with just a touch of Swan.
The Waffle Sweater is…

High Fiber—Leonbergers and Spinners and Bears...Oh, My!

Common Threads met this week. Joanie was working on her second Mother Bear bear:

Her first bear is in a knit shop in Salt Lake City, hopefully recruiting more people to make bears for the project, which sends them to children who have HIV or…

High Fiber—Winter Projects

We were supposed to have Vintage Stitchers at my house last Thursday, but DH is still down with a bad cold, one we would rather not share with our friends. Barbara stepped in (she was my backup in case of snow) and hosted us at her house. Ellen is back in town and brought her Hibiscus quilt top to give to Julie for quilting.…

High Fiber—Wool, Work and Wonders.

It was a busy week! Sunny and I went to visit clients in the nursing home as usual on Tuesday.

Then we had Common Threads on Thursday. My friend Ellen is working on this French Braid design for a quilt top (above). Kay finished a baby blanket for her cleaning lady, who is expecting (below).…

High Fiber—Waiting for Stork...Again! Still! Part III

I can't believe this baby is nearly a week overdue! Well, surely something will happen this week.

I'm not sitting idle, though. I'm working on this little cardigan for BS while we're waiting for him to decide to appear. It's the Jasper Diamond Hoodie from Vintage Baby Knits by Kristen Rengren.…

High Fiber—Family Visits, Part One

We have been on the road since Tuesday. In the car, I got a good start on the kilt hose for DH:



The knitting and the audiobooks make the time go by fast.

We arrived in Peru, IN, Thursday afternoon and have been having a nice visit with DS1 and his DW.



DS had the day off on Friday, so we took the pups (four, including ours and their Westies, Koko and Odie) to the dog park in…

High Fiber—Big Events!

As if the wedding a week ago wasn't enough, the days that followed included a variety of fiber events that place high on what would be my bucket list.





Tuesday, Eevi Emminger, founder of Mitts of Steal, and I went to the Beaverton Fresenius Clinic to deliver fingerless mitts to patients there.







Wednesday, new DIL and I went to Crafts Americana to visit the office of Knit… Continue

High Fiber--Spring at Last!!!

The Crocuses (Croci?) are coming up!

 

That thing that looks like an iceberg floating on the street is...an iceberg. Actually, it's snow DH threw into the street to melt.

"The Shawl" is done, blocked and photographed:…

High Fiber--Spring at Last????

The front deck is getting more sun all the time. You can see that Rocky got to the sunny spot first.

 

 

The snow is melting...melting...melting, but we're supposed to get more tonight. Spring at last? Not until the pups can go out in the backyard without being able to walk over the fence…

High Fiber--Life Gets In the Way!

Real life got in the way of knitting and quilting this week, as sometimes happens.





Sunny and I needed to be recertified for Delta Society/Therapy Animals of Utah. We had to run through a series of tasks to see how we respond to things that might happen in a setting where we provide therapy. Actually, Sunny provides the therapy; I'm just the weight at the end of the leash. Well, I also keep the list of the rooms in the nursing home we need…

High Fiber: Fun with Fiber, Friends and Fur!

Of course, I have been spinning away! It's a wonder I'm not dizzier than I am!





Another dark chocolate Corriedale is finished, along with more of the dyed Corriedale in aqua on my KP Turkish drop spindle, and the Ashford merino and silk on my Golding.



Rocky and Sunny met the new neighbor, a golden retriever puppy temporarily named "Puppy."





Progress is happening on DH's… Continue
