High Fiber—Out With the New, in With the Old?

Woven scarf finished.

Done blocking and ready to wrap and give. (Watch after Christmas for photos of the gift items I made other than the rabbits. The kids don't read my blog yet, so I could show those.)…

High Fiber—Hare-brained Scheme

It might have been a hare-brained scheme to make four bunnies, but I finished the third boy bunny, this one for Johan.





Here's what he looks like without his little kimono. He's wearing garter-stitch booties and soaker, actually knitted as part of the legs and body.…

High Fiber—Love and Generosity

Wow! What a week! I always have to start with a photo, so here's Kay's rug:

She based this on a photo she took while on a cruise with her late husband. He helped her with suggestions and was a major contributor to keeping her interested in the project. It has been languishing since he passed away, but…

High Fiber—End of Winter? Beginning of Summer?

Just a few days before the first day of summer, we got a huge snowstorm.

This is the snow coming off the roof. Where we live, it's common to get snow in June, but it doesn't usually accumulate.

The storm hit on Tuesday, catching us by surprise (rain was predicted) as…

High Fiber—Adorableness

Get ready for adorableness.

Georgette made these booties using a kit she bought during their recent trip to New Zealand. 

We met for Common Threads at Margareth's new place. She has moved in with her fiancée. The house is really nice. …

High Fiber—Classy Clasps and Shifty Shafts

Last weekend was the rug weaving class with Jason Collingwood, "Four-end Blockweaves." 

We met at the Officer's Club at Ft. Douglas in Salt Lake City. The class was sponsored by the Mary Meigs Atwater Weavers Guild.

Jason…

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—Winter Already?

On Wednesday a snowstorm hit. Not some wimpy October snow that melts as soon as it hits the ground, no!

This was a regular, full-blown snowstorm.

We went out early in the day for a get-together with friends we met during the presidential campaign last year. We went to Kneader's at Kimball Junction for breakfast and caught up on…

High Fiber—Bare Bones Dismantle

Halloween is nearly upon us! Was it worth waiting for?

I'll let you know next week. Something that I've been waiting for...although I still have some meat on my bones...was definitely worth it. Remember when I got the loom for my birthday, and we had to wait "for the snow to melt" to move it around…

High Fiber—Spooky Times, Good Times.

The scarf I wove for my friend Rebecca is finished.

I hope to be able to give it to her this week. Rebecca let all the Vintage Stitchers go through the bins of fat quarters she wanted to unload, and we each came away with a pile of very nice quilting fabric. Later, she gave me a big…

High Fiber—Amazing!

Vintage Stitchers met on Thursday at Barbara's. She was trying to get some advice about her new batik quilt.

The pattern is a "block of the month" (BOM) from Kreative Threads. The pattern name is “Bits and…

High Fiber—Beautiful Bears, Bigger Blankets, Beautiful Ballads and Budget Books

Joanie has finished another bear for the Mother Bear Project:

You can just see the petticoat with a picot edge peeking out from under the skirt. (Joanie is a fantastic designer.) These bears go to children who have HIV/AIDS, mostly in African…

High Fiber—Cloudy Days; Bright Colors, Kids and Pets

Have I been busy? Isn't it Labor Day? The placemats are coming along:

The yellow is the center of the placemat. I'm using Dishie worsted in Fiesta RedConchClementine and Creme Brûlée, with just a touch of Swan.
The Waffle Sweater is…

High Fiber—Small, Beautiful World!

On Wednesday, Karan and I went to Joanie's to help her with her paper-pieced pine-tree blocks.

She has such an aesthetically pleasing work space! Here's what it looked like when we arrived:…

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—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—Leonbergers and Spinners and Bears...Oh, My!

Common Threads met this week. Joanie was working on her second Mother Bear bear:

Her first bear is in a knit shop in Salt Lake City, hopefully recruiting more people to make bears for the project, which sends them to children who have HIV or…

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—The Tour Continues....

After the first full week of the Tour de Fleece (TdF), my second “bump” of Full Circle Roving is finished. 

This was my exhausted wheel, Stanzi, a Kromski Sonata, who was ready to ply after a night’s rest. Here’s a look at my progress. (Notice she has her back to the TV.…
