High Fiber—Finishing, Fulling and Phones.

My favorite project for this past week is still my woven bag, now with lining and in use as my handbag:

There’s even room for a small knitting project and my iPad, but the bag itself isn’t heavy. The handles came from Joann’s. The homespun lining came from my fabric…

She had finished the quilting. Barbara inherited it from a friend who passed away.

High Fiber—Back To Normal?

The two days it took to get home from Indiana provided great knitting time!


I made good progress on the Dogwood Blossoms sweater, about 1" of the pattern. I put it on two circs, so you can see…

Long Overdue Blog

This is probably the longest I have gone without posting a blog… in a long, long time. I try to stay busy knitting or spinning, and am always finishing projects, so I usually have plenty to write about. But lately things have slowed down on the knitting front, as other things have taken precedence. What you ask could possibly be more important than knitting?…

Just finished yesterday!

I love experimenting and was inspired by a log cabin type block to try and make a felted tote using a block pattern. I had lots of fun choosing colors and figuring out how to large to make the blocks so that the tote was a nice size. I am working on writing up the pattern so that I can perfect it and then publish it. I used Knit Picks Palette yarn held double to knit with and love the smooth texture and lines of the tote. The tote felted like a dream, I was a…

Is Cast-on-itis a Disease? If so, I have a bad case!

The last week has been very busy, what with welcoming my new grandson, Sam, into the world, and I had two days were I accomplished very little knitting. Finally on Thursday and Friday I got to knit a lot. My DH asked if I had gone through fiber withdrawal... I think that is exactly what happened to me.

I finished all the knitting on the Karin Tote, blocked it on Friday, and mattress stitched it together on Saturday. Then I whip stitched the strap, and inserted the…
