High Fiber—Coming Down the Home Stretch

The big news on the fiber front this week is my Dogwood Blossoms. The steeks are done.

In the photo, you can just see the front is cut open. The armscye steeks are also cut. I used my sewing machine to sew on each side of the cutting line before I took the scissors to it. I'm getting pretty…

High Fiber—Travel and UFOs.

On blog day last week (aka "Talk Like a Pirate Day" and DH's birthday), we were driving home from Mesquite, Nevada, where we overnighted on our way back from San Diego.

I finished the socks after we got home.



We had a great time in San Diego, where we had…

High Fiber--Films, Fans, Fortune...and Fiber

Ta-da! The La Boheme Cardi is done! Here's the back:



...and the front:





This is my first adult-size sweater using fiber I dyed and spun myself. I Navajo-plied the spun Corriedale and knit the cardi in the round using EZ's percentage system, with a steek. I adapted a friend's Scandinavian yoke pattern chart, so there would only be two colors per round.

High Fiber--Closures

These are the last days of anything like summer around here.







Our Saturday hike brought us to a land of striking shades of yellow. (I have to remember this for my dye pot!) It was a warm day. We had a really nice hike to the Fairy Tree in Toll Canyon, a wonderful hiking spot, not just because of the fall foliage, but also because of the year-round stream, which provides drinking water for the pups.…

Making Progress

My CLC is chugging along. Soon I'll be ready to steek!!! Eek! Here's what it looked like before steeking:





And here is the finished CLC:





As you can see, it's up to the neck, and maybe you can't see that I've finished the purl row for the fold and have begun to work down the facing. Next comes the steek! The coilless safety pins mark the edges of the steek. I had them handy… Continue
