High Fiber—The Last a Hare.

I finished the second boy bunny, this one for Soren.

He and Zachy's bunny have the same attire, although the bunnies look very different, so we won't get them mixed up at Christmas. Daphne's bunny is wearing Mary Janes, actually knitted as her feet. The two boy bunnies get Nikes (also…

High Fiber—Nesting for Winter

Why is my yarn stash in guest room?

This isn't even all of it. Not all of the yarn is in view. I would need a wide-angle lens to get it all in.

Back to the question: A few months ago we discovered we had moths, originating in our Navajo rugs in the storeroom. While I was sad about…

High Fiber—Needles and Pins

Chugging away on the Delectable Pathways quilt:

This is the last of three panels, and I only have two more flowers left to appliqué. 

The Puyallup Socks are done and on my feet:…

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—Warped in Mind, Body and Looms

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…

High Fiber—Cold Weather, Good Life!

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…

High Fiber—Close Calls

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.

There was a lot of laundry to do when we got back, especially with the extra towels for the kids. Our ancient Maytag washer has taken to only liking to run one load…

High Fiber—Back from Wyoming.

Important things about Wyoming:

Yes, there are buffalo (bison, a great fiber animal). It's The Equality State, the first to give women the right to vote and the first to have a woman governor. We lived there when we were young, and our first child was born there.
It's also the home of…

High Fiber—Final Finishes

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…

High Fiber—In All Directions

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.…

High Fiber—Fun Finishes

My friends and I have been finishing things this past week. Here's Janet's latest quilt top:

She brought it to Common Threads for show-and-tell. The pattern is "Bars of Gold" from Pam and Nicky Lintott's …

High Fiber—Summer Here at Last!

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:

The fabric on the seat cushions and two of the pillows is UV outdoor fabric, so we can leave them out. The plain brown is not designed for outdoors, but I can take the pillows in at…

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

My year in my sock stash and learning Spanish

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. …

Playing the heel

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…

Long Weekend = Knitting and Reading

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.…

Box 'o Yarn

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…
