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…Continue
The first Waffle Scarf is coming along. I warped the loom for three, if things work out.
Of course, if I run out of weft (not likely) I can switch to a different yarn, but there should be enough warp for three. It's a waffle pattern normally used for dish towels. I found it on…Continue
Snow arrived in Park City last week. That's Sunny, checking out the snow on the front deck.
We usually get a light snowfall in September. This year it was unusual, though. We had five days of light to medium snowfall with some accumulation on rooftops and shady areas. It's gone now, but the temperatures have stayed…Continue
As always after a trip, there's lots of laundry and cleaning to do. I managed to make some progress on my appliqué project, though.
Important things about Wyoming:
With the end of Tour de Fleece (TdF), most of the participants have moved on (or back) to other projects.
One of the projects I returned to was the pillow covers, the class project for my Craftsy class, “Floor Loom Weaving.” After the fabric was ready to take off the loom, the next step was to look…Continue
The Tour de Fleece (TdF) continues. My third “bump” of Full Circle Roving is more than half done. This is the first bobbin of "Carmel."
The second bobbin is on the wheel.
In Bunny Suit progress, the right leg is done. The left leg has been cast on and a couple of inches finished.…Continue
My friends and I have been finishing things this past week. Here's Janet's latest quilt top:
Wow! What a week! Monday we shopped the Memorial Day sale at Hancock Fabrics and got the fabric to recover the seat cushions and pillows for our porch furniture:
Hey Sock Knitters
I was in Barnes and nobles book store just browsing and drinking coffee.
I picked up this magazine called "Knitting Traditions" from piecework and I flipped through and there is a whole section on the history of socks. Can you say "yeah" anyway, I didn't know…Continue

Hey my fellow sock knitters
I know it has been a while since I announced my goal.
I have been busy with work and school, so by the time I get
in at night, all I want to do is pass out. …Continue
Hi I am back to start another goal I need a challenge to jump start my knitting passion so I will be knitting a pair of socks a month and learning spanish at the same time. So here is what I am going to do. I will be "trying" to use up my sock yarn stash and patterns from my sock pattern books, which won't be hard because I have a lot of them. …Continue
In the socks I’ve done so far, I’ve got two modified versions of the sweet tomato heel and a short row heel using the sweet tomato stitch pickup technique. This time I’m working a modified version of the afterthought heel. The single row of black yarn near the needles is where the heel will be…Continue

I'm just coming off a four-day weekend, which has been much needed. Aside from the time to sleep in and cuddle with my cat (yes, I am turning into a Crazy Cat Lady), I did a good bit of knitting and finished two books. I love time off!
The first pair are the Eunice Socks from Cookie A's Sock Innovation. I did these with Gloss in Winter Night, and think they came out very nicely.…Continue

There's nothing quite like adding to the yarn stash, whether it's from the LYS or a package arriving on the doorstep. I try to knit from my stash whenever possible, just so it doesn't completely take over the house (actually, it's a toss-up between yarn or books as to what's going to force me to start camping out in the back yard!), but sometimes a yarn just calls out and I have to get it.
My last LYS splurge was two skeins of Lobster Pot Cashmere lace in Salt Rose, so I…Continue

Progress on the Fiji sock!
I just returned from a weekend trip to Grand Junction, Colorado, to help register voters. It was about five hours each way, so there was lots of knitting time in the car. (It's amazing how much you can get done cooped up in the car.) The yarn is Knit Picks Glimmer in Fiji. The…
The body is almost finished. The nose is just resting on the appliqué. I have to sew it on and do the nostrils in reverse-appliqué, as I did for the eyes.…Continue

He arrived at 13 minutes after midnight on Easter morning. His weight was 8 lbs 4 oz and he measured 20.5 oz.…Continue
