High Fiber—The Last Bunny...by 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—The Groundhog Lied!

We drove through the rain this week to reach Vintage Stitchers, which met on Thursday.

High Fiber—Cold and Colds, Mishaps and Repairs

It's been a hard week in the mountains of Utah. The weather was part of it. 

That was taken Wednesday. We had several more inches over the weekend. I had to turn off the alerts on my weather app, because it kept waking me up at night and annoying me during the daytime. (As if I couldn't just…

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—Family Visits and Home Again.

We made it home safely, just missing a big snowstorm. We left behind happy memories, including time with family and meeting Knitting Community friend Beth in Kokomo.



And getting to see Daphne in some of the things I knit for her, including the gold socks:

The day after arriving home, I left DH with the unpacking and went to Common Threads. There I got to see Lynda's cardigan, almost…

High Fiber--Well, Maybe Not Spring. Or Maybe Spring. Maybe?

It has been switching back and forth between snow and rain every day for a week. At least I have my knitting to keep me warm!

Before my DSIL passed away in October, she gave me her one and only UFO: an Aran Cardigan she had started for her DH, using wool from Kilronan on the island of Inish Mor,…

High Fiber--Spring at Last????

The front deck is getting more sun all the time. You can see that Rocky got to the sunny spot first.

 

 

The snow is melting...melting...melting, but we're supposed to get more tonight. Spring at last? Not until the pups can go out in the backyard without being able to walk over the fence…

High Fiber--Fluffy and Cold!

We got another blizzard, starting Saturday night. Here's what it looked like midday on Sunday:

 

This is the time of year to be concerned with those less fortunate. Do you carry a packet of nonperishable food in your car? You never know when you might come across someone in need. Our Squeeky…

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.…
