High Fiber—Sampling Cross-stitch.

We had a rare treat at Vintage Stitchers this week:

Carol picked up this great cross-stitch sampler in a silent auction. It's worked on evenweave. What a lot of work must have gone into it! Here's a closeup:…

Sweater Workshop Sampler... part three

First the moral, then the story:

Never try to learn something new with a screaming migraine!

I'm starting on my third day of a migraine, off and on... more on than off. However, I really want to finish the Sampler so I can get on to the business of actually creating a sweater. So, when my head isn't screaming too loudly to think or breath, I'm plugging away on it.

The problem with that though, is that my neural synapses do not fire properly when under the stress… Continue

Sweater Workshop Sampler... TaDa!

After... what... two weeks of procrastinating and sabotage, I finally took scissors to the Sampler and performed surgery on my Sampler. It now has its final element installed: an Afterthought Pocket, a la Elizabeth Zimmerman and grateful thanks to the KnitPicks tutorial video for the kitchener stitch moral support. I probably could have done it by myself, but I wanted the "security" of actually seeing it done before I wrapped up the last task.

As with every other task in the Sampler,… Continue

Sock Progress

I'm a new member of this knitting community and I've been working on the winter Kettle Dyed Sock Sampler. I got my first digital camera for Christmas, so I've been taking pictures of knitting projects. I've finished one January sock and most of a T-shirt sweater since then.…

Sweater Workshop Sampler... part four

Have you ever avoided doing something because you had a preconceived idea it would be too hard, too complex, too intimidating? Maybe that question should begin, "How often have you avoided..." Have you ever wondered how many times in your life you passed up an opportunity to learn something new and fun and rewarding out of sheer fear of failure?

I have.

As I'm working my way, stitch by stitch, through the "assignments" of the Sweater Workshop Sampler I am receiving… Continue

Sweater Workshop Sampler... part two

Status Report: Ripped open my KP box upon arrival. SO satisfying! LOL! My GD helped and I could hardly stop her from "petting" the four balls of Suri I'd gotten. [A ball of which looks for all the world like a multicolored "Tribble," a la "Star Trek"!] I, myself, was more transfixed with the Shine Worsted I'd bought with the intention of working my Sampler.

What an AWESOME yarn. Cotton blend? Really? THIS is a cotton blend??? SO soft and silky!!! I got two balls of Creme Brulee...… Continue

Finally... the Sweater Workshop Sampler is at hand!

I am giddy like a little kid on Christmas morning who just heard the sound of hooves and jingle bells on the rooftop!!! My KnitPicks order will arrive sometime today. Will probably be this afternoon or early evening before someone will go pick it up from our mail place... I do not anticipate a chimney delivery... and I will FINALLY be able to begin my Sampler!!! YAY!!! WaHOO!!! Yippee!!! [dance of joy!]

It is, however, snowing this morning, so I hope that doesn't get in the… Continue

Yarn diet? What yarn diet?

So I'm perusing the April catalog and finding so much to love about the new colors and all the summer yarns and planning how to spend my economic stimulus package. I click to the Knit Picks website and start loading a cart with my wishlist - a little Comfy in pink, a little CotLin in green (mmmm... kohlrabi), a little Shine in yellow maybe. Not a lot of yarn, not a sweater's worth, just a sampler, if you will. But it's just a wishlist. I mean I just ordered from Knit Picks 2 weeks ago (Gloss… Continue
